Dodowa Hospital; 5 Years On

By | Dodowa, Press, Progress | No Comments

The Shai-Osudoku Hospital was the first facility within the Ghana Health Programme and was handed over to the Ministry of Health early in 2016.

Following a tour of the District Health Facility in April 2018, WHO Regional Director for Africa, Dr Marshidiso Moeti, identified the NMSI built Hospital at Dodowa as possibly a new benchmark for health facilities in Africa in terms of infrastructure and service delivery. “This facility is unique and is setting the standard for the region and I am so impressed about everything here”, she said.

In terms of delivery outcomes, the hospital has outperformed UN SDG3, setting high standards worth emulating across the Continent.

Dr Moeti also vowed that the facility’s operational strategy and successes were something she was going to learn more about in order to replicate the system in other health institutions in Ghana, and across Africa.

Indeed, the facility declared its mission for zero tolerance for maternal deaths and has since handover, continued with this commitment to achieving zero maternal deaths over the years.

Medical Director, Dr Kennedy Brightson, has restated his team’s commitment to the highest standards of patient care while striving to maintain the hospital and its landscaped surroundings to the highest standards.

Dodowa Hospital is now the leading hospital in the Shai-Osudoku region, serving a catchment area of 250,000 population (up from 50,000 catchment of the old hospital it replaced), with patients coming from as far as Burkina Faso and Togo.

New wall art in Pediatric ward Dodowa

By | Dodowa, Giving Back, Press, Progress | No Comments

On the 7th of July, a small team from NMSI office in Accra, spent their day at the recently opened Dodowa hospital for a special CSR project in the paediatric ward.

Tom, Francis and Cynthia, along with Adrian Crowley’s wife, © NMS Infrastructure 2016 July 2016 • Page 2 Esther, and two young children, Oisín and Eabha, brought a little more colour to the ward by putting up some fun and decorative animal and “Thomas the Tank Engine” stickers on the walls.

The artistic endeavours did not end there, with the pièce de résistance featuring a large jungle mural which is instantly visible as soon as you enter the ward. We hope this will bring some fun and pleasure to the kids in the ward and will make their time there a little less distressing.

By | Dodowa, Press, Progress | No Comments

In June 2016 the newly built Shai Osudoku District Hospital in Dodowa went fully operational.

The hospital was built by NMS Infrastructure Limited in partnership with the Ghanaian Ministry of Health on their “Built To Care Ghana” project.

Constructed predominantly by a Ghanaian workforce, with around 60% of those coming from the local community, this new 120 bed hospital is a true reflection of the quality of work that can be achieved and has set a new standard for other hospitals to aspire to.
