The St. Anne’s Polyclinic was commissioned on June 10, 2015. The facility is located in Tagadzi of the North Tongu District of the Volta Region.
St. Anne’s Polyclinic is the first multi-purpose surgical theatre at Tagadzi, North Tongu.
In 2020, the Office of the North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has signed a partnership agreement with a Spanish Non Governmental Organization (NGO), Manos Unidas to construct the first multi-purpose surgical theatre in his Constituency.
The construction of the multi-purpose surgical theatre commenced after funding was secured from the Spanish NGO, Manos Unidas following a joint proposal submitted by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s office and the Keta/Akatsi Diocesan Development Office of the Catholic Church.
After the joint proposal was submitted, Manos Unidas has made available US$91,000.00 for the physical construction and the MP’s office is spending GH¢150,000.00 on medical equipment.
Ablakwa explained that, the first multi-purpose surgical theatre not only for the St. Anne’s Polyclinic in Tagadzi but for the entire Dorfor/Fodzoku/Volo/Torgorme enclave in my beloved constituency.
The multi-purpose surgical theatre when completed in August 2022 will house;
1. Two theatre rooms.
2. Two offices for medical doctors.
3. A nurses’ office.
4. Two recovery rooms
5. Changing rooms
6. Sanitary facilities.
Doctors say this project is going to manifestly address challenges with maternal mortality which now stands at 197/100,000 live births in the North Tongu District (2020 data); and also help with responding to casualties resulting from road traffic accidents.
Ablakwa is absolutely delighted about what the partnership between his office, chiefs, the Tagadzi/Atitekpoe communities on one hand and the Catholic Church on the other hand achieved since the St. Anne’s Polyclinic was commissioned on June 10, 2015.
