The C4C Homeopathic hospital, in its quest to expand its tentacles and create jobs for healthcare deliverers, has partnered government to recruit at least 2,000 nurses into the homeopathic industry of the country.
The health workers, including registered nurses, medical doctors, medical assistants, alternative medical practitioners and assistants and medical herbalists, have undergone additional training in homeopathic healthcare and medicine under the sponsorship of C4C Hospital and are ready to begin work.
The project is envisaged to mitigate the backlog of health personnel and to reduce the unemployment challenge in the health sector, as well as address the needs of students of senior high school using homeopathic medicine in support of the allopathic treatment given already.
President of the C4C Group of Companies, Dr. Michael Kojo Kyeremanteng, announced this partnership arrangement at the inauguration of the 9th C4C homeopathic hospital at Kade in the Kwaebibirim District of the Eastern Region.
“It is refreshing and a big sigh of relief for a private company to decide to lift off the burden of government in the area of unemployed,” he said.
Dr. Kyeremanteng, explaining the move by the hospital, said the country’s health sector in recent years has been bedeviled with the challenge of retaining potentially high quality manpower with a backlog of health graduates, who are yet to be employed by the government.
“It is against this debilitating challenge in the health sector that C4C Homeopathic Hospital has partnered with government in recruiting about 2,000 workers into the homeopathic health care,” he stated.
Addressing the issue of the cost of healthcare in the country and the challenges faced by the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Dr. Kyeremanteng referred to the C4C Health Insurance Scheme, which he claimed had been designed specifically as a one-stop shop of all medical needs and urged the people to enroll onto the scheme.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Kade, Ohemeng Tenyase, said the Kade branch of the hospital, which is the newest to be introduced by the C4C Group of Companies in the area, would help in improving the health of indigenes.
Mr Tenyase advised his colleague MPs and Ghanaians to take good care of their health in order to be productive citizens.
C4C Group of companies currently has five subsidiaries, with nine homeopathic hospitals countrywide and over 110 employees.
It has a growing target of over 3,000 employees.
