Ayanfuri Pentecost Hospital Gets Surgical Theatre
The Pentecost Hospital at Ayanfuri has set up an ultra-modern surgical theatre to provide quality healthcare services for people of Ayanfuri and other surrounding communities.
The surgical theatre was constructed at the total cost of GHS 271,000.00 with funding support from The Church of Pentecost Headquarters.
Due to the absence of a surgical theatre, patients in the Ayanfuri area and environs who needed surgeries had to travel to Cape Coast or Tarkwa to seek medical attention. In some instances, emergency cases that could have easily been handled by the hospital were referred to other facilities at the detriment of the patients.
Since opening the surgical theatre in December 2019, a total of 48 surgeries have been successfully performed at the Hospital.
Pentecost Hospital Ayanfuri was established in 1983 as a mobile clinic until 2001 when it became a static clinic. The facility was recently upgraded from a Clinic to a Primary Hospital by the Health Facility Regulatory Agency (HeFRA) in October 2019. Currently, the Hospital has a bed capacity of 20 for admitting patients whose conditions might require short-term hospitalisation and a total staff strength of 84.
Pentecost Hospital, Ayanfuri is one the 8 health institutions of The Church of Pentecost.run by the PENTSOS Directorate, headed by Elder Richard Amaning.
