Project / Ambulance for Dominase Hospital  / We have now completed our goals for this project

Project Story

The Dominase Hospital was established in 1990 to care for the health needs of several rural communities of about 30,000 people. It is situated in the Amansie East District in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. In 2009, when Noble Donkor visited the hospital to take inventory of the donated medical supplies, a seven-year-old accident victim died in his presence because there was no power for the doctors to operate on him, and there was no ambulance to transport him to the city hospital. Today, ABW has purchased a generator that will supply power 24/7 and an ambulance that will transport those in need of care.

About the project

The Dominase Hospital was established in 1990 to care for the health needs of several rural communities of about 30,000 people. It is situated in the Amansie East District in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. This 50-bed hospital provides quality health care in areas including OPD, Surgery, In-Patient Care, Pharmaceutical, Reproduction and Child health, Nutrition, Laboratory and Counseling Services.

There is an urgent need for an ambulance to support critical health care in the area. This ambulance is needed to facilitate transportation of critically ill patients from surrounding towns to the hospital as well as referral cases to bigger hospitals. The Dominase hospital is also close to the Kumasi to Bekwai and Obuasi main highway, and is sometimes overwhelmed with large number of patients and accident victims, some of whom need to be transferred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital or Bekwai Government Hospital.

Our involvement

In 2009, when Noble visited the hospital to take inventory of the donated medical supplies, a seven year old accident casualty died in his presence because there was no power for the doctors to operate on him, and there was no ambulance to transport to the city hospital.

Today, ABW has purchased a generator that will supply power 24/7 and an ambulance that will transport those in need of care.
