According to Dr. Bawumia, the project is part of the Government's Flagship “1District, 1 Hospital” initiative by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufu-Addo and the NPP led Administration.

The new hospital has several departments including Outpatient and Emergency Department, Inpatient Wards for male, female and pediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology (Maternity and Child Health), Surgery including an Intensive Care Unit, Physiotherapy, Pharmacy Diagnostic Services including X-ray, Laboratory, and ultrasound, and a Mortuary.

The interventions, made by Government in the health sector, according to some residents have been very timely, particularly on the back of COVID-19 pandemic. We would have succumbed to the devastating effect of the outbreak of the Corona Virus pandemic but for skillful management of the pandemic by the Ghana Health Service and the health workers.

The other related facilities are the 80 Bed Hospital at Somanya in the Eastern Region; 80 Bed District Hospital at Buipe in the Savannah Region; 60 Bed Hospital at Wheta in the Volta Region; 60 Bed Hospital at Sawla in the Savannah Region and a 30 Bed Polyclinic at Bamboi in the Savannah Region.
