Ridge Hosp. still closed
The Greater Accra Regional Hospital, formerly the Ridge Hospital, remains closed to the public in spite of plans to reopen it to the public today, Monday May 22.
The ultra-modern facility, which was opened to the public on Wednesday 17 May during its official inauguration, was closed to the public on Friday, 19 May.
The hospital authorities attributed the closure to the need to sanitise the facility after it was toured by Health Minister Kweku Agyeman-Manu and members of the public.
But as of 1pm on Monday when Accra News’ Jedidiah Anarfi visited the premises, the facility was still closed to the public.
He reported that sources within the hospital indicated that even if the hospital was opened today, no patient would be admitted until all equipment at the facility have been installed.
He further disclosed that management of the hospital was locked up in a crunch meeting over an undisclosed matter.
