Medifem Hospital makes progress in multi-specialist healthcare
The Medifem Multi-Specialist Hospital and Fertility Centre has listed improved patient safety, innovative medical practice and tailored specialist care as part of its strategic objectives for the short to medium term.
The company says it is continuously working towards a service delivery chain that puts the patient more at the centre.
At an end of year media soiree, CEO and Medical Director, Dr Richard Banful told journalists that the Hospital is delivering on its mandate and working to introduce more services that make its a one-stop healthcare service provider for its patrons.
“We are engaged in constantly training our staff, introducing innovation and adding on other service portfolios that will make us a one-stop health centre.
“Our clinical data are all pointing in the positive direction and we are striving to provide the best healthcare services to our clients,” Dr Banful said.
The Medifem Multi-Specialist Hospital and Fertility Centre is a Ghanaian-owned, first-class private healthcare institution dedicated to the provision of a range of specialized medical services.
From its first centre in Dzorwulu in 2004, Medifem, buoyed by its vision to become a leader in excellent healthcare delivery and fertility management, providing positive patient experience and innovative medical practice, it has since 2012, been operating an ultra-modern centre on the Margaret Anderson Avenue in Westlands, Accra in addition to its Dzorwulu branch.
Its three leading consultants, Drs. Richard Banful, Nana Henaku-Larbi and Sampson Ampofo Koranteng have an average of more than 45 years of medical practice between them locally and internationally and have an enthusiasm for the Ghanaian health industry.
The hospital is noted for its speciality in women’s care but has expanded its service portfolio to include physician specialist care, general surgery, dental, fertility management and allied health areas.
The company’s total outpatient data showed that patronage was increasing on a year-on-year basis indicating growth.
Apart from its impeccable record in the delivery of maternal and child healthcare, the Hospital has over the last few years introduced and delivered solutions in plastic surgery, urology and recently added Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) and orthopaedic services.
This, Dr Banful says is a demonstration of progress towards a fully integrated health centre that takes care of various health needs.
“We have recently added on orthopaedic and ENT services with a lot more in the pipeline. There are plans to expand our portfolio but more importantly improve our service delivery.
“We are moving towards a fully integrated health centre where a patient who walks in can access the full chain of health services as much as he/she wants,” says Dr Banful.
