The construction of the 500-bed Kumasi Military Hospital is progressing steadily.

This is according to a Deputy Communications Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu.

In a Facebook post on Saturday, the Deputy Minister indicated that the project upon completion will have 105 housing units for staff of the hospital, shops, as well as 620 parking spaces, among other amenities.

The project, he said, will “boost healthcare delivery in the Ashanti Region and beyond and offer more options to the healthcare-seeking public.”

The multi-million dollar project is located at Afari, a town between Kumasi and Nkawie.

It is situated on a 260,000 square metres of land and it will become the second military hospital in Ghana after the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.

The hospital would serve the Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Northern, Upper East and Upper West regions.

Work is expected to be completed in 2017.
