The Leadership of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), University Management, Senior Members of the University and representatives from the Student’s leadership witnessed the sod-cutting ceremony of the Central University Clinic.
The brief event led by the Chancellor, Rev Dr Mensa Otabil and the Vice Chancellor, Professor Bill Buenar Puplampu took place at the site on the Miotso campus of the University on Monday 24th February,2020.
The Chancellor, in his remarks revealed that the University had considered various designs and sizes of the University hospital since its relevance in the teaching of the Medical and Allied Health programmes as well as provision of critical health services to both the university community and its immediate communities could not be overemphasized. He noted that after many discussions and consultations, it was decided that the final design will be of a size that would be efficiently managed and maintained by the University.
Rev Dr Mensa Otabil announced that the ICGC was committed to providing the funding for the project valued at about Five million Ghana cedis and expected to be completed in not more than twenty four months. This will be the first phase of the Central University Teaching Hospital. He was happy that when completed the clinic will provide the much needed on-campus facility for the practical and clinical training of students in Nursing, Midwifery, Physician Assistantship, Pharmacy and Medicine as well as provide critical health services for the general traveling public along the Tema-Aflao highway and the Miotso, Dawhenya,Prampram, Ada, Sege and connected communities.
On his part, the Vice Chancellor was very grateful to the University Council and the leadership of the ICGC for agreeing to undertake this very strategic investment into Ghana’s health service delivery.He acknowledged the hard work and efforts of many who contributed to the design and preparation of the project especially; contributions from the School of Architecture and Design, the Development Directorate and the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
Professor Bill Buenar Puplampu stated that the completion of Central University Clinic will facilitate the commencement of programmes in Medicine as other relevant infrastructure like a theatre, a delivery suite, an X-Ray and Ultrasound units are added in the near future to upscale it to a full Teaching Hospital. He also was happy that the cost of sending students on clinical rotations will be drastically cut as they can now use a facility on campus.
The 38 bed facility was designed by a team led by the Dean of the School of Architecture and Design (SADe) Architect J.G.K Abankwa.
To climax the event, a Cinnamon tree was planted to commemorate the project as Rev Dr Mensa Otabil led the gathering to pray for the successful execution and timely completion of the project.
