The Kpandai District hospital is virtually losing its relevance in offering reliable healthcare services for residents as a result of some critical challenges the hospital is inundated with in its domain.

Almost all the essential healthcare services, like surgery, X-ray, and ambulance services amongst others are not operational at the facility which to a large extent results in a lot of referral cases from the centre to either Salaga or Bimbilla district hospitals.

The Member of Parliament for Kpandai constituency, Mathhew Nyindam in an interview with Ghanamps.gov.gh noted that the situation is quiet worrying as currently no major treatment goes on at the hospital due to lack of modern facilities to aid the staff handle certain cases.

Mr. Nyindam pointed out that the hospital in the event of emergency situations always rely on Wulensi district to assist in ambulance facilities, recounting that such situations are literally precarious as the arrangement of an ambulance may delay in reaching Kpandai hospital due to the distance involved.

The MP therefore called on the government through the Ministry of Heath (MOH), and other well meaning organizations to attend to the sorry state of the hospital so it could support it beef-up facilities to befit its status as a major health facility at the district.
