They consist of the Sege Municipal Polyclinic in the Ada West District, Ashaiman Polyclinic in the Ashaiman Municipality, Bortianor Polyclinic in the Ga South Municipality, Oduman Polyclinic in the Ga West Municipality and Ogbojo Polyclinic in the Adentan Municipality. Work on the projects, being constructed at a cost of €13.5 million, started in May 2017 and all of them are about to complete, approximately 80 per cent complete.
Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, the Health Minister announced the date that when he inspected work on the Sege and the Ashaiman Polyclinics. He said the polyclinic will be vital for emergency cases in the event of motor accidents on the stretch, for this reason there is a need for an additional ward to deal with complex cases. He indicated that this is a main road and anything could happen on this road so there is need to get prepare to save lives at every moment in time.
The contractor pointed out that an extra ward cannot be included right now, but a future expansion would include an additional ward. Mr. Agyeman-Manu gave the task to the assemblies benefitting from the projects to make funds ready to equip the two bungalows that would be allocated to the appointed doctors at the facilities. He also gave the task to them to barrier the facilities after the completion of work on them, the reason is to discourage encroaches from invading the lands that can be considered for future expansion.
