Simon Osei-Mensah noted that work has progressed immensely since last year with civil works almost complete. He added that most of the equipments are already in the country as such installation work is expected to be done smoothly. He indicated his satisfaction at the work done and expressed the hope that by September, ‘people would no longer be referring to Kumawu hospital project but rather, Kumawu hospital’.

Mr. David Moore, the Senior Site Manager of NMS Infrastructure Limited explained that though civil works as well as drainage works are still ongoing, he believes that with team work timelines can be met.

Other activities undertaken by the Ashanti Regional Minister during his working visit are inspection of the Bodomase police station project, inspection of the District Health Insurance Office, the District Assembly Administration block complex as well as cut the sod for a Green Ghana project.
