The occasion was used to recognise the efforts of personnel whose work had  enhanced healthcare delivery in the hospital.

In a speech read on his behalf, the Inspector-General of Police, John Kudalor, applauded the hospital for its dedication and commitment during the June 3 flood and fire disaster.

He noted that management and staff of the hospital worked tirelessly to ensure that victims brought to the hospital received all the necessary treatment.

Mr Kudalor said last year, some personnel of the hospital who were part of Formed Police Units (FPU) deployed to South Sudan, performed credibly.

“This is a very remarkable feat for the hospital and the entire service since we have been recommended both locally and internationally and announced that the United Nations body had requested for another FPU formation to be deployed to its mission in Southern Sudan,” he said.

Mr Kudalor said the service also applauded the roles being played by the police hospital as they took part in riots control during demonstration throughout the country.

He said the police medical team continued to play vital roles at the various conflict areas which includes Alavanyo,Yendi and Bunkprugu.

“Currently, I understand a team of medical personnel from the Police Public Health Unit is going round the country and creating awareness on pneumococcal meningitis, cholera, malaria and other communicable  diseases to police personnel, their families and the general public,” he said.

The Police Administration, he said, was looking forward to the completion of the new hospital block and had approved the purchase of modern equipment to upgrade the hospital.

“We are on the verge of procuring a mammography machine to take care of our police ladies and other women. The hospital’s Dialysis Centre and the Intensive Care Unit have also been equipped with modern equipment to the level of international standards”, he said.

Dr Amoh Mensah, Director of the Police Hospital, appealed to the management of the National Health Insurance Authority to pay its debt owed to the hospital.
