The Agogo Presbyterian Hospital is the oldest mission hospital in Ghana. It is operated by the Presbyterian Church and serves a local population of 150,000. However, patients from all over the country travel here for treatment. The hospital specialises in ophthalmology and has risen to prominence from very modest beginnings; it is now the second largest hospital in the Ashanti Region of Ghana, and is a referral centre for many hospitals in the region. As a part of the Presbyterian Mission, it is a leading mission hospital in the country.
The official designation of the hospital is as a district hospital due to its size, range of services and situation, however, the scale of the hospital is more in the category of regional hospitals. The hospital actually accepts patients not just from all parts of Ghana, but also from the neighbouring countries of Burkina Faso, Togo and La Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast).
Within the last ten years Agogo Presbyterian Hospital has undergone some major infrastructural improvements notable amongst which are; extension, rehabilitation and equipping of the main operating theatre; rehabilitation and equipping of children’s ward; construction of kitchen, toilets and bathrooms for mothers of children on admission; and rehabilitation of the hospital maternity block.
