Speaking at the inauguration in Accra, the Health Minister said this would make the facility much attractive to patients to experience quality service delivery, care, and attention.
He said the newly constituted 11-member board had a range of professionals and opinion leaders with a great wealth of experience in the health sector, business, finance, and other fields to improve the hospital’s service delivery.
He said the welfare and allowances of employees should not be downplayed in their oversight responsibilities as board members of the Teaching Hospital to motivate them to take good care of patients they encountered.
He said as part of good stewardship, it was equally important to work hard to improve on the facility’s Internally Generated Fund and have surpluses in their annual budget to channel into developmental projects of the hospital, support government, and solve some internal challenges faced by the hospital.
Mr Agyeman Manu, tasked them to ensure that suppliers of consumables to the facility were handled professionally to make sure the facility was always well resourced to give good services to its clientele.
