First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo Hand Over New Waiting Area for Visitors To Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

First Lady of Ghana

According to Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, when she commissioned Rebecca Akufo-Addo Paediatric Intensive Care Unit in May 2019, she  noticed that many visitors were sitting under trees and other uncomfortable places so she realized that Korle Bu needed a decent Waiting Area for the Emergency wards to provide comfort, safety, peace of mind and protection against adverse weather conditions

The First Lady further explained that she expressed her desire to rectify the  situation to Dr Okoe Boye, who
was the Board Chair of Korle Bu at the time and on that note, they approached some
corporate institutions, including the First Atlantic Bank, to build a Waiting Area for the Hospital

She indicated fortunately for them, their proposal for the project was in line with the Corporate Social Responsibility of the bank so the Managing Director of the First Atlantic Bank acknowledged the enormous relief that such a project would bring to citizens, who have to wait as their relatives and friends undergo
medical care.

He said hundred and fifty people could have a place to sit, washrooms, as well as banking solutions for those who might require financial services.

She was optimistic that the facility will bring a huge relief to visitors, as well as the management of Korle

She however charged the Management of the hospital to ensure good maintenance of the facility and also
entreat visitors, who will use the Waiting Area to keep it clean and adhere to the required protocols for the use of this place.

She commended  First Atlantic Bank for the kind gesture; for attaching human face to their line of business
