Dr. Anyah with staff of Holy Trinity after the event
The Executive Chairman of the Holy Trinity Medical Centre and Holy Trinity SPA and Health Farm, Dr. Felix Anyah, has won the Healthcare Business Icon and Pride of Volta Region award for 2019.
The award is in recognition of his several years of providing health service innovation, strategic leadership, job creation, economic and business development in the country, which has propelled the Holy Trinity brand as one of the leading healthcare centres.
His Holy Trinity SPA and Health Farm also won the Premium Quality SPA and Health Tourism Business Pride award 2019 at the Ghana Business Quality & Pride awards organized on Saturday by the Entrepreneurs Foundation of Ghana.
The Premium Quality Health SPA award is presented to a company that has demonstrated overall service quality in healthcare spa, service competitiveness and service innovation in the healthcare spa industry.
Dr. Anyah established the Holy Trinity Medical Centre in 1988 with five staff members, and has grown it to an outstanding health facility with 42 doctors and over 300 auxiliary staff.
Speaking to journalists on the sidelines of the awards ceremony, Dr. Anyah urged successful business leaders to mentor the younger generation by focusing on the blend of entrepreneurship with quality, discipline and honesty.
He encouraged entrepreneurs to strive for the best not only for themselves but also for Ghana, saying that was the legacy he wanted to leave.
Dr. Anyah spoke about his several charity projects at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital and elsewhere.
In 1989, Dr. Anyah, as part of his charity initiatives, adopted the Kaneshie Cripples Home for free medical care and also established the ‘Help the Epileptic’ charity in 1995 with the aim of providing free drugs to epileptics across Ghana.
As an acting Chief Executive Officer of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Anyah donated, among other things, a 7.5HP water pump to supply water to six storey surgical block, three air conditioners to the physiotherapy unit, motorcycles to security department, and mattresses to the polyclinic.
He was the first acting board chairman of the Health Facilities Regulatory Agency in 2015.
The ceremony was held under the theme: “Prompting International Quality Business through Strategic Partnership for Economic Growth,” and was used to recognize regional business icons.
