The Akuapim South Municipal Hospital is one of the renowned district hospitals in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Located at Nsawam, the capital of the Akuapim South Municipality, the hospital has come to assume the popular name Nsawam Government Hospital.
The Hospital was established in 1928 and sited at Ayigbe town. It was however re-located to its present location on the Nsawam-Aburi road in 1982. This became necessary because of lack of space for expansion at the old premises.
The 2003 prestigious 2nd Best Managed District Hospital Award winner started as a 50-bed capacity at its old premises.
Through hard work and dedication, management and staff have over the years transformed the hospital into a 135 bed capacity hospital.
The Hospital has five main wards, namely: Male Medical and Surgical, Female Medical and Surgical, Paediatric, Maternity and a 19-bed Casualty Ward.
The hospital has a dentist, an Opthalmologist and a host of experienced Senior Nursing officers to handle students of Dentistry, Ophthalmology and Nursing.
There are over 220 staff who run the 24 hour Hospital care.
The hospital is noted in the eastern region as one of the best in the area of quality assurance and infection prevention. It is the first hospital in the eastern region to receive the enviable “baby friendly” award.
You can look forward to having a very pleasant elective attachment with Nsawam Government Hospital.
