Ghana National Oil Company (GNPC) is set to construct a 100-bed capacity hospital in three towns in the West African nation.
The three beneficiary towns, namely Walewale in the newly-created North-East, Tema in Greater Accra and Ellembelle in the Western Region.
Vice President of the West African nation, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, according to information available to energynewsafrica.com, last Tuesday, cut the sod for the commencement of construction work for the Walewale health project.
The Executive Director for GNPC Foundation, Dr Dominic Eduah has told energynewsafrica.com that sod cutting ceremony would be done for the remaining two before the end of this year.
He explained that the national company cares about the health of Ghanaians, hence, its decision to prioritise the health of the people in the three towns.
Dr Eduah noted that because the GNPC places importance on the health of Ghanaians that is the reason it recently sponsored about 200 students to Cuba to undergo study and return to serve the health needs of Ghanaians.
When asked about the cooperation between the GNPC and the beneficiary towns, Dr Eduah noted that there is a stronger collaboration between them
