Government supports Tamale Central hospital with auto scan equipment for pregnant women



Government on Thursday presented three ultramodern pelvic abdominal utralsound  scan equipment to the Tamale Central Hospital to reduce maternal mortality in the northern region.

The pelvic abdominal ultrasound scan is expected to help midwives at the yet-to-be upgraded northern regional hospital in Tamale to ensure the safe delivery of babies. The deputy health minister, Dr Victor Bampoh, made the presentation at a short ceremony.

According to Dr Bampoh, the machines would go a long way to ensure that pregnant women who come to the hospital to deliver their babies do so in a safe and healthy environment. He said measures have been put in place in line with government’s commitment and policy to have a regional hospital for the region.

The Northern Regional Director of the Ghana HeLth Service, Dr Jacob Mahama, who received the equipment on behalf of the hospital explained that, the promise the deputy minister made when he paid a working visit to the facility some four months ago had been fulfilled.

Dr Bampoh assured health workers of government’s commitment in addressing their concerns. He also assured hospital authorities of government’s support in the acquisition of much needed health equipment.

The medical superintendent at the hospital, Dr Mahamadu Mbinwaya, explained that the equipment has the capacity to determine the lying position of babies in their mothers’ wombs.
