Less than 1 minute Minutes

PROF. OTCHERE Addai-Mensah, Chief Executive (CEO) for the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) says he was committed to using the opportunity the President has given him to head Ashantis premier health facility to cause the development people want to see.

He noted it was not good for anyone to say negative things about the hospital since it is a referral center for twelve (12) out of the 16 regions of the country.



The CEO said this puts a challenge on staff and workers to give off their best to all patients who he calls customers upon visits.

Speaking to Kwame Tanko, Host of Angel FM Morning show, the CEO stated that, “my heartbeat is to ensure that anyone who visits KATH is treated so well that they would recommend the place to others who may be seeking for proper medical care”.


The CEO said that in just six months he has consciously built healthy working relationships with the Board, Management and Staff of the facility.

He noted he has no illusions about the enormity of the task ahead but was determined that with the right kind of relationships and partnership with staff and workers they could achieve desired results.

Currently, the CEO stated that everyone at KATH was giving off their best to support him in the desire for the facility to become a model hospital in Ghana and in Africa.

“I have intentionally built good relationships with my Board, Management and Staff because we can only achieve the results we want to see when we collectively commit to work”, Prof Addai-Mensah noted.


The CEO disclosed that he was committed to painting the entire facility to give it a befitting facelift.

Currently, the doctors flats and walls of the facility have been painted through a partnership with Neuce Paint Company and some friends as well as philanthropists.

He mentioned plans to consciously paint the entire blocks at the hospital including the nurses blocks and to also upgrade its interiors so that it can compete with what pertains in developed societies.

“KATH since its establishment has seen no major refurbishments and the wards are currently not in the best of shapes so as a plan to celebrate the Asantehene who turns 25 years on the throne next year we will together solicit funds to do a massive infrastructural refurbishment to honour the King whose support to us has been immeasurable”, the CEO stressed.

Punitive Measures:

The CEO stated that the hospital has had to take some punitive measures on some erring doctors and staff.

This, he noted has not been borne out of ill will or malice but as a measure to crack down on staff impropriety and misconduct.

While doing this, the CEO said he has had the backing of both the Board and Management to carry out same to ensure no one is denied the quality of care or support at KATH.

“We are human beings and our responsibility is to treat our likes very well and so as a measure no one would be allowed to siphon funds, forge documents or solicit funds from customers and patients inappropriately”, the CEO firmly stated.
