Apam Catholic Hospital

District General Hospital | Apam, Ghana

Hospital description

The Apam Hospital is a small, Catholic-run hospital in the Central District of Ghana. Students are welcomed as part of the family and encouraged to play a full role in hospital life. The hospital is one of the three under the aegis of Archdiocesan Health Office in the Central Region of Ghana and was originally established in 1959. Since this time it has since undergone some modifications to infrastructure to ensure that it is a consistent provider of a 24 hour health service.

The principle catchment area is the Gomoa District in the central region (some 197 communities live within this region), for which the hospital acts as a referral centre, particularly the maternity homes in the Gomoa District. The hospital also offers services in medical, surgical, trauma and a specialised service in obstetrics and gynaecology.

There is good access to the hospital, which sits at the junction of several roads, but there are still communities that are inaccessible by good road networks, and which have poor supplies of basic amenities such as water. As such there is a prevelance of water borne diseases in the region and the main health problems that are likely to be seen at the hospital are conditions such as; anaemia complication (mostly in children), malnutrition, typhoid, teenage pregnancy, skin diseases and ulcers, and a high infant mortality rate.
