A considerable amount of renovation work as well as new constructions have been carried out over the years, but the Hospital still consists of a large number of individual buildings in different shades of quality, size, architecture and appearance. As part of Government efforts to improve health care infrastructure towards Universal Health Coverage, the Hospital was considered for expansion and upgrading. Consequently, the Government of Ghana and the Export-Import (Exim) Bank of the USA; and the HSBC Bank of the United Kingdom signed an agreement to build an ultra-modern facility of about 620 beds, with the full complement of specialist services that would adequately meet the growing demand for quality secondary and tertiary level health care services in the Greater Accra Region.
