The World Health Organisation (WHO) has identified the Shai-Osudoku District Hospital at Dodowa as a possible benchmark for other health facilities in Africa in terms of infrastructure and service delivery.
The WHO Regional Director for Africa, Dr Matshidiso Moeti, said the hospital had set a standard that was worth emulating nationwide and in Africa, in so far as healthcare delivery outcomes were concerned.
She said tracing the evolution of the hospital from a health post decades ago to its current ultra-modern state, the facility’s operational strategy and successes were something she was going to learn more about in order to replicate the system not only in other health institutions in Ghana but also across Africa.
Dr Moeti made the observation following a tour of some health facilities in the district on 18 April 2018.
