Tema Lube Oil Ltd (TLOC) donated a new Hyundai ambulance to Ashaiman Polyclinic. Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Tema Lube Oil Ltd (TLOC) Mr. Kow Abakah Quansah remarked that the provision of an ambulance was TLOC’s contribution towards ensuring better healthcare in the Ashaiman community and its catchment. Mr. Quansah announced TLOC’s decision to also bear a year’s cost of comprehensive insurance for the ambulance.

The Board of Directors granted the request for assistance submitted by Ashaiman Polyclinic in the hope that the ambulance would help enhance the quality of healthcare delivery and prevent avoidable deaths. The Ashaiman Polyclinic serves Ashaiman and its catchments, which together are home to some 350,000 residents. The hospital has 41,000 annual average OPD attendance and its labor ward reports an average of 3,500 infant deliveries every year. Without available ambulance service, critically ill patients and women in labor referred elsewhere to others hospitals are often transported in taxis and through other arrangements. With the provision of an ambulance by TLOC, Ashaiman Polyclinic would not be able to transport patients quickly and help save lives.

Dr. Mavis Opong-Addoh, Head of Ashaiman Polyclinic, received the keys to the ambulance from Mr. Quansah. Dr. Oppong-Addoh expressed gratitude to TLOC and assured board and management of prudent use and proper maintenance of the ambulance.

Witnesses at the donation event included Managing Director of TLOC Mr. Amos Donkoh, Mrs. Patience Ami Mamata, Metropolitan Health Director, Mrs. Vivian Amponsah DDNS in charge of nursing, Mrs. Justine Deynoo, Administrator and Mr. Razak Sarkodie and Mr. Francis Oteng (ambulance drivers).
