Part of the Laboratory and Diagnostic Unit of the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) has benefited from rehabilitation works estimated at about GH¢15,000 aimed at improving the conditions at the hospital which were hitherto deplorable.
Dalex Finance, a financial company operating in some parts of the country financed the rehabilitation works as part of it’s corporate social responsibility.
Dr. David Kolbila, Acting Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital commended the company for instituting such a positive initiative and appealed to other institutions to assist the hospital.
He said the working environment affected workers’ output and called on the staff at the laboratory to give off their best since their working environment had been improved.
Dr. Kolbila urged financial companies giving out loans to workers to educate people on financial issues, particularly investment opportunities that will enhance their living conditions.
Dr. Juventus Ziem, Head of Diagnostic Unit of the Hospital said the unit had not seen any major rehabilitation since it was built many years ago, leaving it in a very deplorable state posing problems to workers and patients.
He said the rehabilitation of parts of the lab was welcome news adding that the unit offered service to the people in the Region and to some patients across the three northern regions.
Mr. Francis Agodoo, Human Resource Manager of Dalex Finance Company said though the company was yet to commission its Tamale office it had started delivering on its corporate social responsibilities in the area.
He said the company offered loans to workers and small companies and indicated that the company intended to address the financial needs of workers under the motto ‘Every day is pay day’.
