The facelift was done at the cost of GH¢70,000 by Transitions, a subsidiary of Enterprise Group Limited, one of Ghana’s biggest insurers.
It began in 2017 and ended this year within which essential equipment such as Isolation valves and high oxygen regulators were installed. The refurbishment exercise also involved the general beautification of the ward through painting, wall décor and new curtains.
The General Manager of Transitions, Mrs Jodene Smith, said at the inauguration of the refurbished facility ward that the gesture was in consonance with the tradition of the Enterprise Group, of which Transitions is a subsidiary.
She said over the years, the group had been consistently focused on the strategic areas of education, health and community development for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.
She explained that Transitions chose to support the GAEC Hospital as a CSR Project because “charity begins at home and Haatso and its environs had provided a ‘home’ and launch pad for Transitions to provide comfort and convenience to bereaved families in Accra and beyond.”
The Medical Superintendent of the GAEC Hospital, Dr Anthony Quampah, thanked Transitions for their support and encouraged other companies to emulate their example.
Staff of the Children’s Ward and parents who were present at the ceremony also expressed their gratitude to Transitions for the refurbishment.
The event was spiced with fun activities planned by Transitions to entertain the children and parents and included story-telling, face-painting and gifts for the children.
