It is also among the hospital’s management effort to help KATH staff members to benefit from the hospital, regarding their personal transformation.
KATH CEO, Dr. Oheneba Owusu-Danso, who made the disclosure, assured that the policy would be sustained in the coming years to make KATH the best.
“To enhance the human resource capacity of the hospital, which is the driving force for the transformation of institutions such as ours, management spent over GH¢1 million on staff members, pursuing different specialized programmes in the various professional disciplines within and outside the country”.
The KATH CEO stressed the need for constant upgrading of knowledge of the hospital’s staff so that they would be abreast with modern health techniques.
