Health facilities within Hohoe municipality generate over GHS 2, 000.00 to supplement Hohoe Municipal Ambulance Fund

Fourteen government owned health facilities within the Hohoe municipality have generated an amount of GHS 2,570.00 to supplement the Hohoe municipal ambulance fund.

The facilities which include clinics and CHPS compounds raked in the said amount between October and November, 2017.

This was revealed by the Hohoe Municipal Director of Health, Dr, Felix Doe, at a stakeholders meeting organised by the Hohoe Municipal Ambulance Committee at Hohoe.

According to Dr. Doe, health facilities in Likpe BalaLikpe Abrani,, Likpe Mate,  and Likpe Agbozume generated GHS 81.00, GHS 55.00,GHS 300.00 and GHS 46.00 respectively.

He said facilities in Alavanyo Wudidi and Alavanyo Dzogbedze raked in GHS 406.00 and GH S 175.00 respectively, while Akpafu AdokorAkpafu MempeasemGbledi Gborgame, and Lolobi Kumasi contributed to the fund GHS 111.00, GHS 20.00, GHS 170.00, and GHS 446.00 in that order.

The health facility at Wli Central generated GHS 96.00, Gbi Wegbe, GHS 308.00, Fodome Woe, GHS 94.00, while Santrokofi produced GHS 262.00.

The ambulance fund was set up by chiefs and people of the nine traditional areas in the Hohoe municipality in consultation with stakeholders to make transportation of referral cases from the municipal hospital easier.

The fund also has a goal of purchasing an ambulance to augment the municipality’s two existing ambulances which are not in very good conditions.

Stakeholders at the meeting resolved that collection of the ambulance levy which was suspended upon the direction of the Regional Health Directorate should resume on March 8, 2018.

Patients who will be required to pay GHS 2.00 per visit to the Hohoe Municipal Hospital and GHS 1.00 for every visit to any other health facility in the municipality other than the municipal hospital.
