[divider style=”simple”] Euroget De-Invest s.a, an Egyptian project management and financial group has resumed work on the construction of nine hospital projects in Ghana.
The multi-million dollar hospital projects which would have a total capacity of 1310 beds and 105 housing units for health officers in various part of the country came to a halt due to financial and administrative challenges.
The Chief Executive Officer of Euroget, Dr Said Deraz said in a release that the projects picked an accelerated pace after resolving the financial challenges encountered due to internal and external bottlenecks, and the release of first disbursement from the ABSA/Barclays funding arrangements.
He said currently, the first stage of the construction phase, involving Wa, Salaga, Tepa and Nsakaw hospitals had seen significant progress.
“We unconditionally, pledge our commitment to continue the progress and deliver the hospitals in time, to increase access to good healthcare facilities and enhance the social well-being of Ghanaians,” Dr Deraz said.
Euroget De-Invest s.a, is an European-Egyptian investment company which has registered an external company with the Registrar General’s Department to establish a corporate office in Accra.
“This was followed by the hiring of both local and expatriate staff to manage, supervise, facilitate and monitor the execution of the Hospital projects,” Dr Deraz said.
He said the project could boast of high local content with the involvement of both local and foreign sub-contractors.
Deraz said “in line with its avowed dedication to deliver top quality service with a combination of the best resources, Euroget De-Invest s.a has assembled a team of highly reputable Ghanaian and international contractors for the civil and electro-mechanical works of the Hospitals.”
He said 51 specialist medical suppliers from all the continents of the world have applied to supply the medical and non-medical equipment for the nine hospitals.
Euroget De-Invest s.a, signed an MoU with the Ghana Government, represented by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Defence, to design, engineer, construct, equip and finance the 9 hospitals in various parts of the country.
The project comprised of one Military Hospital with 500 beds capacity and 40 staff housing units in Kumasi and two regional hospitals in Wa and Kumasi.
Wa hospital would have a total of 160-bed capacity and 20 staff housing units, while Kumasi would have a total of 250-bed capacity with 20 staff houses units and 410 beds.
There would also be six district hospitals for Salaga, Nsawkaw, Tepa, Konongo, Twifo-Praso and Madina with a total capacity of 400-beds and 120 staff housing units.
