Investigations by BestNewsGH.com has revealed a worrying trend at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in the Ashanti Regional Capital, Kumasi, in which medical doctors at the facility refer patients who require CT scan services to a private hospital owned by one of their colleagues, Dr. Frimpong Asafo Adjaye.
Dr. Frimpong Asafo Adjaye owns spectra clinic in Kumasi and has taken advantage of the breakdown of the CT Scan at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital to get his colleagues to refer patients who require those services to his private facility.
Indeed this website’s investigations reveal that he has positioned an ambulance at the entrance of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, in readiness to transport referred patients to his clinic.
Any doctor who refers a patient to the facility takes a commission, but this website is unable to tell the percentage they are given.
The trend has become a source of worry to some staff of the hospital who believe their action is short-changing the facility as they accuse the Chief Executive Officer of the hospital Dr. Oheneba Owusu Danso of deliberately refusing to replace the broken down CT scan.
They describe the situation as appalling for the second biggest health facility in the country.
This website has more to report on the massive rot at the facility and will keep readers posted subsequently.
