The facility as a referral Centre of the Region has only two specialists - a Paediatrician and a Gynaecologist.
The hospital has 10 medical officers, which include three Cuban doctors who are currently on annual leave.
The situation is hampering health care delivery at the entire facility of 220-bed capacity.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), Dr Patrick Atobrah, the Medical Director of the hospital said the facility as a referral Centre of the Region had only two specialists - a Paediatrician and a Gynaecologist.
“We do not easily get doctors at the Out-Patient Department,” he said.
He explained that the hospital would need a minimum of 30 doctors of various categories to enable it to operate effectively.
Dr Atobrah also called on young doctors to accept postings to the region, adding that “they will see all the medical conditions they learnt from their textbooks manifest in patients, and would boost their level of experience than staying in the Urban Centres.”
The Medical Director also raised issues about the shortage of water to the hospital, arguing that “although the Region was deprived, its natives were Ghanaians and deserved the maximum comfort in seeking health care services.”
