THE DISTRICT Chief Executive (DCE) for Ahafo Ano South-East, Thomas Owusu Ansah, has announced his plans to handsomely reward the Best Health Worker in his district by the end of the year.
He did not readily disclose the exact item that the lucky best health worker would take home, noting that the package would be juicy and it would serve as a motivation for other health workers to deliver.
The DCE made the announcement during the 2022 Mid-Year Performance Review Meeting of the District Health Directorate, held at Adugyama, the district capital, on Wednesday July 27, 2022.
Owusu Ansah also heaped tons of praises on health service staff in his district for contributing significantly to help improve healthcare delivery in the area, saying, “You are exceptionally good”.
According to him, “majority of the health staff have demonstrated high sense of professionalism and ethics in the line of duty and I need to greatly commend you to sustain your positive works”.
He said even though the health workers in his district are confronted with many challenges in their line of duty, they have still been able to deliver to his satisfaction, saying “I’m proud of you”.
Owusu Ansah assured the health workers that “Once you serve with your hearts, you would surely have your reward on earth and in Heaven”.
The DCE passionately appealed to the health workers to continue with their good services to the people so they (health staff) would enjoy “both earthly and heavenly rewards”.
The District Health Directorate boasts of two hospitals, three health centres and five CHPs Compounds.
Mrs. Priscilla Sarkodie, the District Health Director, on her part, said inspite of myraid of challenges, her outfit still has the burning desire of working assiduously to achieve successes.
She said there has been massive improvement in health service delivery in the three sub-districts in the area, namely Sabronum, Pokukrom and Biemso.
To her, lack of residential accommodation for staff, inadequate staff and means of transport, continutes to serve as impediment to health workers in the district.
Mrs. Sarkodie has therefore appealed to well-to-do individuals, non-governmental organisations, and philanthropists to come to their aid to complement the effort of the District Assembly.
