Lady Julia commissions 30-bed maternity ward for Manhyia Government Hospital

Lady Julia, the wife of Asantehene, has commissioned a 30-bed maternity ward at the Manhyia Government Hospital in Kumasi.

The story-building facility, Nana Konadu Yiadom III Maternity Block, which is named after the current Asantehemaa, will complement the existing 16-bed maternity ward in the hospital.

The facility was initiated by Asantehemaa and Lady Julia, with support from the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation, and constructed by the Joberg Foundation, Ghana.

The facility commissioning which took place at the Manhyia Government Hospital was graced by the Aaantehemaa, health officers, and other queen mothers.

It was commissioned on Saturday, April 27, 2024.

The Queen Mother of Mampong Traditional Area, Nana Agyankoma Difie II, speaking on behalf of Asantehemaa, said the maternity ward fulfills the desire of Asantehemaa, Nana Konadu Yiadom III.

She noted that “as the mother of Asanteman, the welfare of women, especially pregnant and nursing mothers, are essential to Asantehemaa and must be enhanced.”

 The Board Chairperson of the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Foundation, Nana Prof Oheneba Boachie-Adjei Woahene II, said the facility will improve quality mother-baby care.

Nana Prof Oheneba Boachie-Adjei Woahene II said, “This extension will relieve the ward’s congestion and increase the quality of care given to the mothers and babies who come for care.”

In his speech on behalf of the hospital, Kamarudeen Korku Hussein, the Medical Superintendent of the Manhyia District Hospital, thanked the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for building the maternity block.

“The new block will improve the delivery of healthcare through professionalism, patient-centeredness, and protecting patient privacy to receive high-quality care in a compassionate way,” Korku Hussein stated.

“It will also safeguard women’s dignity before, during, and after childbirth,” he continued.
