Nsawam Prison owes hospital Gh˘73, 000
The Nsawam Prison owes the Nsawam Government Hospital GH˘73,000, being cost of medical services offered to inmates of the Prison since 2009.

As a result, the hospital since last year had stopped offering medical services to the inmates on credit basis, and they were being made to pay for all medical expenses.

Mr Thomas Wuni, Finance Director of the hospital, made this known at the annual review meeting of the hospital during the week.

He said in addition to the indebtedness, the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) also owed the hospital millions of Ghana cedis.

Mr Wuni disclosed that the mortuary contributed about 50% of all revenue generated by the hospital and so had depended on that to run the hospital efficiently in the face of the huge debts owed it by the Prisons and the NHIA.

He, however, urged the staff to be conscious of their work to rake in more revenue to run the hospital and also be vigilant to prevent mismanagement of the funds generated.
