iMEM Foundation donated an incubator to the neonatal intensive care unit of the Tema General Hospital.

Director of iMEM Foundation Comfort Aniagyei said the gift was to help ensure that the hospital properly positioned to address the challenge of infant mortality. She expressed iMEM’s hope that parents and hard working staff of the neonatal ICU would be relieved of some of the anxiety caused by inadequate incubators.

Dr Adjoa Dsane, medical officer in-charge of the neonatal ICU thanked iMEM for the gife and conceded that the limited number of incubators was a challenge for the hospital.

Dr. Dsane explained that because the hospital had only four incubators, caregivers are compelled to put two or three preterm babies in one incubator. She noted that while this was not the best practice, the decision is made to reduce the mortality rate of preterm babies in the hospital.
