The government has commenced the construction of a new female ward for the Ngleshie Amanfrom polyclinic.
The construction of the material ward will contain 60 beds which will help be a great help to the pregnant women on admission for delivery.

Addressing the media ,the municipal chief executive stated that , this project has been in the pipeline since he assume power and in the quest for the president to achieve his quality health care policy this initiative was necessary.
He added that, the project will be completed before the end of 2018. The MCE entreated the contractor to ensure the project is completed on time to pave way for phase two to commence.
Meanwhile, the administrator Dr Akosua Ayisi also expressed their excitement saying the construction of the new block will improve quality health care and reduce mortality rate within the municipality.
The residence Doctor also expressed his gratitude to the assembly for attending to their call for expansion of the health facility.
