According to him, management have put in place measures including operating a paperless system at the facility to facilitate quick service delivery and reduce to best practices, the waiting time at the hospital.
“We will try as much as possible to provide quality health care to our clients. So we want to operate a paperless system within the region so we are bringing in software so we can run a computerized system to reduce the waiting time at the hospital”, he noted.

“We have provided all the equipments that we need for the theater and laboratory and currently in our lab we have the fully automated chemistry analyzer that we brought to the country. It is the first in the region and we can run a particular test that even Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) can’t run”.
The hospital, he added will serve as a research centre for students of the Tamale Technical University and other students from different schools to carry out their practical research activities.
Meanwhile, some of the students of the Tamale Technical University applauded the school authorities for investing in the health facility that will provide them with quality and accessible health care.
