Initiative KATH sets up 'Prestige Clinic' to boost revenue

It is located within the facility’s ultra-modern eye centre and provides an option for people who, for pressure of work, cannot stand in long queues to access specialist eye-care services at their convenience.

The Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), as part of efforts to generate more revenue for its efficient running, has set up a “Prestige Clinic” to offer quick and comprehensive ophthalmic services to business and corporate executives.

It is located within the facility’s ultra-modern eye centre and provides an option for people who, for pressure of work, cannot stand in long queues to access specialist eye-care services at their convenience.

Dr. Joseph Akpaloo, the Chief Executive, said the model clinic would be replicated in the other directorates of the hospital.

This, he noted, would without doubt, help to substantially bring in revenue. He was speaking at an end-of-year thanksgiving service held by the hospital – the nation’s second largest referral facility, in Kumasi.

Dr. Akpaloo pointed out the hospital made significant progress during the year and cited the establishment of paediatric intensive care unit at the Accident and Emergency Centre, inauguration of the first Electroenceplatopramme (EEG) diagnostic facility with a consultant neurologist and replacement of elevators at the old “Gee” blocks.

Besides, its dialysis centre was refurbished and five additional dialysis machines installed.

He said the hospital also made headway in the establishment of a cardiothoracic surgery centre and launched the first ever population-based cancer registry in the country.

Dr. Akpaloo said, despite the remarkable achievements, the hospital was still faced with a number of challenges and mentioned among them, dilapidated infrastructure, inadequate space that had led to congestion, lack of supporting peripheral health facilities and rising cost of medical consumables.

He, however, expressed confidence these could be surmounted given discipline and a good customer care approach. He urged the staff to be disciplined and work hard to improve the health of the people.

The Reverend Dr. Charles Kingsley Opoku, Chaplain of the Hospital, asked the workers to refuse to be daunted by any unpleasant experiences they might have had in the past.
