The facility was donated by Ashanti Development, an NGO based in Italy and funded by the Bergonzoni family also in that country.
Nana Adu Appiah Kubi, Chief of Adutwam thanked Ashanti Development, Bergonzoni family, Save The Poor International, an NGO, Sekyere Central District Health Directorate and Mr Kwame Asafu Adjei, Member of Parliament for Nsuta-Kwamang-Beposo for their contribution to the project.
Mr Danso Yeboah, District Health Director, praised the chiefs and the people in the area for their communal spirit, which made it possible for the early completion of the project.
He advised them to cooperate with the staff posted to man the clinic, ensure that the facility is owned by the community, enforce the maintenance culture and make the facility friendly to beneficiaries.
He reminded the staff at the clinic of the core value of Ghana Health Service, which includes team work, discipline, integrity, professionalism, peoples? centeredness, and innovation of excellence.
Mr Yeboah said with this in mind they could have the confidence of the people to attract them to use the facility.
He said as part of their normal duties, the staff would visit the people periodically in the homes to provide counseling services, immunisation, anti-natal care, school health and other related services in line with the Community Health Improvement Programme concept.
He said as a new health facility, the directorate has contacted the Mampong District National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) to inspect the clinic for approval to enable patients with NHIS cards to use it.
Mr Samuel Annoh Yeboah, Executive Director of Save The Poor International presented assorted items to the clinic, the community and schools in the area.
