The Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi on Monday, received three Savina 300 Ventilators and a suction machine to manage COVID-19 patients admitted in the facility.

Contracta Construction UK Limited, contractors of the new Kejetia market in Kumasi, donated two of the machines at the cost of 60,000 Euros, while GOIL Company, presented one, at the cost of GHC150,000.00.

Mr. Jorge Taveres de Almeida, Project Director of Contracta Limited and Mr. Augustine Boateng, Middle Belt Zonal Manager for GOIL, who made a joint presentation to the Hospital, said the gesture was part of the corporate social responsibilities of their respective companies towards helping KATH to effectively manage and treat COVID-19 patients.

Dr. Oheneba Owusu–Danso, Chief Executive of KATH, stressed the need for efficient and robust ventilators to help manage highly infectious diseases including COVID-19.

He mentioned that government had awarded the Child and Maternity Unit that had been abandoned for a long time for contract to be completed to help ease congestion at the facility.

Dr Owusu-Danso said due to the unique location of the KATH, critically and severely ill patients were transferred from all parts of the country for treatment.

He said KATH was currently focusing on the treatment of critically ill COVID-19 patients, while additional operational facilities were being searched for to admit other patients for treatment.

Dr. Owusu-Danso called on other organizations to support the Hospital to provide quality care to patients.
