The Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana) Limited has completed renovation of parts of the Amenity Ward of the Emergency Accidents Centre at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
The project includes the installation of two patient cardiac monitors, three automatic hand dryers and a water heater; re-painted the corridors of the ward and fixing of other broken facilities; and donation of assorted medical equipment and items worth over Gh₵20,000.
This forms part of the bank's 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility activities and to fulfill its promise to improve healthcare delivery.
The bank, last year, announced its intention to adopt the Ward for the next five years to ensure proper maintenance and also provide other needed medical equipment for the smooth running of the Centre.
'As a responsible corporate entity, it has been our policy to give back to the society in which we operate and the selection of the Accident Centre at Korle Bu is especially so because it is meant to serve a lot of people across the length and breadth of Ghana, bearing in mind the sustainability of our project', stated Lekan Sanusi, Managing Director of GTBank Ghana.
The Head of the Accident Centre, Dr. A. O. Addo, expressed gratitude to the Bank for honoring its promise to the Hospital. He said the items were essential and would go a long way to help in the delivery of good healthcare to patients.
