Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has funded the renovation of two medical centers in the North East region after successfully paying the expensive renovation of the Tamale Central Mosque.
The Walewale Government Hospital and Wulugu Health Centre underwent significant renovations to improve the environment for providing treatment.
Issahaku Aremeyaw Somo, the Chief Executive of the West Mamprusi Municipal Assembly, informed the Daily Graphic that Dr. Bawumia was the sole funder of the initiatives, with the intention of enhancing the caliber of healthcare delivery in the area.
The Vice-President decided to make this intervention because, according to him, “he is deeply devoted to improving healthcare delivery in the region.”
Since they were built, the facilities have never undergone such extensive renovations, he continued.
Both facilities were troubled and in a terrible condition prior to the renovation.
The Walewale District Hospital was in deplorable condition despite being the first government-run hospital in the North East Region. The ceilings and zinc were in poor condition, and certain areas of the structure had developed serious wall fissures that leaked whenever it rained.
In the meantime, representatives of the two facilities thanked Dr. Bawumia for the gift and promised to take good care of the health facilities.
The Vice President has shown an admirable commitment to promoting development in the nation’s least-developed regions, particularly in the North.
Bawumia recently paid for the renovation of the Tamale Central Mosque, and after officially handing over the finished project to the city’s officials, locals showered him with praise.
