Could this be the best hospital in Ghana?
I do not particularly like hospitals so if I have got to go, it has to be for something worth the visit.So on one of those occasions, someone recommended I visit Medicas Hospital at Mampong Akuapim, just beyond the hills of Aburi.
I was reluctant at first, but I needed attention for something really feminine you know. I could not possibly take chances with overcrowded hospitals, where medical staff treated me like another piece of their frustration.
I called Medicas Hospital on the phone first to get a sense of their client-handling skills. To be honest, I believed they would be slightly carefree with me so I would have an excuse not to go there. To my surprise however, the lady on the other side of the phone gave me just the information I needed, treated me with much respect, it almost felt like she knew me already.
After a little thought, I chose to head for Mampong Akuapim. Since a good friend offered to drive me to the place, it took just about an hour and fifteen minutes of mid-morning drive from Tema to the health facility.
From OPD (Out Patient Department), Consultation, Laboratory Testing, to Specialist Care and Recovery, each point of contact was “me-focused” and made hospital and healthcare a lot easier on my senses.
Though the Gynaecologist turned out to be my favourite person there, I encountered other friendly people who made my stay and pain better.
Thankfully, their services cover almost everything from general medical services to dentistry, gynaecology, delivery, orthopaedic and plastic surgery (cosmetic as well).
Imagine the look on my face when I realised that the Physiotherapy Department had a fitness gymnasium and a swimming pool. I was however too weak to think of trying them out.
All said; thank you Medicas Hospital.
