KBTH Reopens Renal Dialysis Services To Outpatients


The Management of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH), has announced the re-opening of the Renal Dialysis Unit to outpatients.

The decision by the Korle Bu management follows subsequent engagement with the Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, last week.

“The Ministry of Health is working closely with the management of KBTH to offset the GH₵ 4 million debt occasioned by the cost under recoveries,” the management said in a press release.

It further called on Parliament to expedite action on the proposed new fees and charges to enable the hospital recover cost and sustain the service.

The hospital management also commended individuals, corporate bodies and other philanthropic organisations who have over the years helped to provide life-saving treatment to patients.

“It is our hope that other stakeholders and benefactors will also come on board to support in order to prevent a recurrence of the challenges that led to the suspension of dialysis service to outpatients,” the management said.
