Winneba hospital director suspended during GHS probe into abandoned patient case


The Medical Director of the Winneba Trauma and Specialist Hospital has been temporarily relieved of his duties pending an investigation by a committee established by the Ghana Health Service (GHS).

The decision comes in response to allegations that a patient was abandoned in a bush at Gomoa Ojobi in the Central Region, sparking widespread concern and prompting a social media outcry.

In a statement addressing the situation, the GHS’ Director-General, Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, emphasized the need for a thorough investigation. He stated, “To ensure credibility and unfettered access to all relevant information, the Medical Director has temporarily been relieved of his post pending the outcome of the investigation.”

Rumors began circulating on Thursday, June 13, accompanied by a video purportedly showing a woman wrapped in sheets and left unattended in the bush, allegedly by an ambulance from the Trauma and Specialist Hospital in Winneba.

Patrick Kuma-Aboagye further assured, “The appropriate action will be taken at the end of the enquiry to ensure that any persons connected with the unfortunate incident were brought to book.”

The GHS is committed to transparency and accountability in addressing the incident to uphold standards of patient care and public trust.
