Ridge Hospital Greater Accra Regional Hospital
Ridge Hospital is an essential project for the city. Due to increasing patient numbers, the previous hospital was overstretched and the refurbishment was necessary to provide extra capacity. The revamped hospital provides for a modern, fully functional facility complete with operating theaters. The hospital is in line with international standards and represent one of the most advanced medical facilities in West Africa.

The revamped hospital is in line with international standards and represents one of the most advanced medical facilities in West Africa.
It includes a new 420-bed building, a treatment block and a cutting-edge maternity ward. In addition, some of the building’s electricity supply is provided by solar power, enabling it to meet environmental standards.
In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, GE Healthcare, the Ghana Ministry of Health and the U.S. government committed to upgrading and rehabilitating this facility — more than tripling its capacity, to 620 beds. The Export-Import Bank of the United States financed more than $155 million dollars of the cost of the design and construction of the project. Totaling more than 456,000 square feet, it will be the largest hospital in the country.
