The growing number of high income earners in the Ashaiman and Tema enclave will soon not need to travel far for the kind of healthcare they would prefer.
This is because New Crystal Health Services is expanding its operations to also cater for them.
The private healthcare provider has secured about 5.7 million dollars from international investors to build 2 new state-of-the-art hospitals and give 3 others a complete facelift.
This expansion project is to enable New Crystal to continue to serve the low income as well as add the middle and high income groups.
Chief Executive Dr. Wisdom Amegbletor says the plan is to respond to developments and varied income groups that have emerged in its catchment area.
But he stressed that the low income bracket which has been its traditional base, will continue to be served.
New Crystal Health Services will add new and essential services such as intensive care, paediatric care and (complex) surgical services as well as care for lifestyle diseases to its current offerings.
The healthcare provider has 7 networked hospitals in Ashaiman, Tema and Takoradi.
