Cape Coast Teaching Hospital needs well-designed NICU – CEO

The Chief Executive Officer of the Cape Shoreline Teaching Hospital (CCTH), Dr. Eric Kofi Ngyedu, has become a huge hit for the institution of a stylish and resourced Neonatal Intensive Care Device (NICU) for the hospital. Based on your pet, the hospital presently does not have a well-designed NICU with all the necessary facilities expected at the NICU to aid ideal care for preterm babies.

He said because of the lack of NICU using all the necessary facilities and human resources, a healthcare facility has temporarily, created what the phone calls the “Special Treatment Baby Unit” to offer some NICU services for preterm babies. Dr. Ngyedu made the attractiveness when the Kokrokoo Charities in cooperation with KGL Basis, presented two baby incubators worth US$20, 000 to a healthcare facility on Friday, March twenty-five, 2022.

He said the hospital has recognized the organization of the NICU as a priority task because of the large number of preterm infants that are shipped at the medical center as well as the ones that are known to them. This individual explained that the hospital’s Special Treatment Baby Unit was not up to the standard of NICU and for that reason could not provide all the services a well-resourced NICU could provide.

He said a healthcare service is currently “advocating for a Brand new Neonatal Intensive Treatment Unit built, well designed, with an experienced human resource to be able to look after these infants. ”For Doctor Ngyedu, when the hospital gets a new NICU with the needed facilities, it is going to place the medical center in the right position to provide all the needed to take care of preterm and its associated conditions.

He noted, for instance, that some preterm babies are brought to a healthcare facility from Côte d’Ivoire, adding that a healthcare facility records many preterm deaths because of to lack space and equipment. He, therefore, recommended Kokrokoo Charities for the gesture, observing that both baby incubators would increase the procedures of the hospital’s Unique Care Baby Device, pointing out that a healthcare service currently has only four functioning baby incubators.

Kokrokoo Charitable Organizations Foundation

Kokrokoo Charitable Organizations Foundation is a social intervention effort set up by Kwami Sefa Kayi, the presenter of Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Morning Show. The particular initiative is targeted at identifying and addressing critical interpersonal needs in Ghana and helping solve emerging development difficulties.


With regard to his part, the Founder and Top dog of Kokrokoo Charitable Organizations, Mr. Kwami Sefa Kayi, said the building blocks decided to contribute both incubators to the facility because of the benefit traffic of preterm babies that are received and looked after at the hospital. He said the gesture was also in fulfillment of an assurance that the Base made to a healthcare facility in 2017, explaining that when the Base first donated an incubator to the hospital in 2017, it promised to come back with additional incubators.

They gave peace of mind that the inspiration would work with their partners to help set up a new NICU for the hospital, dialing on benevolent individuals and corporate organizations to support the Foundation because of their view. For him, Mister Sefa Kayi “there is little or no space” currently at the hospital’s Special Attention Baby Unit as against the numerous preterm babies that are received at the facility, noticing that the minimal space meant that you will have serious pressure on the center and the personnel.

The Programmes Supervisor of KGL Basis, Mr. Annorbali-Sarpei Nii Ankonu, said the Foundation would always support initiatives targeted at enhancing healthcare shipping and delivery in the country. He said the Foundation since its establishment has recently been empowering communities and changing lives through sports, education, athletics, and health helps.


Before the official handing over of the newborn baby incubators to a healthcare facility, the hospital’s staff, specifically those at the “special care baby unit” were taken through how to control and use the incubators. The trainer, Mister Yaw Esuon Arthur, a Biomedical Industrial engineer, admonished the hospital’s staff to adhere to the right procedures in using the incubators, noting that when properly maintained, it could are about 15 years.
