St. John’s Hospital & Fertility Centre donated an ambulance to the Ghana Immigration Service Clinic. Management of the hospital described the gift as part of the hospital’s social responsibility in the area of improving healthcare delivery.
Mrs Maame Yaa Afriyie, CEO of St. John’s Hospital and Fertility Centre, explained that the ambulance should help improve the emergency response system in the Ghana Immigration Service, which has had a challenge in transporting patients in times of emergency.
Mrs. Afriyie hoped that given the full complement of resources onboard the ambulance, care providers would be able to save lives.
Minister for Interior, Mr. Ambrose Dery, received the gift on behalf of the Immigration Service and thanked St. John’s Hospital & Fertility Centre for their generosity.
Mr. Dery handed over the keys to the ambulance to Comptroller-General of GIS Kwame A. Takyi and urged Mr. Takyi and his management team to apply the ambulance for the purpose for which the donation was made.
