Mr. K. K. Boakye, an official of the hospital, said though the facility had prevailed upon the ECG to take them off the load shedding, the situation still persisted.

He said the situation was poising great challenge towards quality health care delivery particularly surgeries and emergency.

Mr. Boakye said the hospital spent about 3000 cedis each time they had to fuel the generator plant, a situation that was greatly affecting their operations.
