The ultra-modern medical theatre is fully furnished with one Electrocardiography (ECG) machine, 10 ECG papers, two incubators, two oxygen concentrators, two delivery beds, two examination couches, two examination lamps, 10 hospital beds, 10 bedside cabinets, five intravenous (IV) stands, two nebulizer sets, 20 oxygen nasal prongs and two vital sign monitors among others.
The MP indicated that his constituency lacks a district hospital and a doctor which affects healthcare delivery; hence he made a promise to provide them one during the 2016 elections.
Mr. Oppong Nkrumah said the theatre will greatly improve health delivery at Brenase, noting that the revamping of other health facilities in the district will boost the stock of infrastructural facilities so as to improve the equity gap in geographical access to health services.
He then thanked the people for securing a permanent accommodation for the only Doctor in the constituency.
The DCE also said most referrals to Oda and Abirem government hospitals are going to be things of the past and then thanked the President and the MP for the facility.
