As part of efforts to making healthcare accessible to all, especially childless couples, a team of Ghanaian medical doctors from South Africa have put up a new state of the art hospital (Glenof Hospital) at Taifa, a populous suburb of Accra.
The team, which consist of Doctors, Nurses, and Counselors with enough experience in the medical field and fertility disciplines, according to its leader, opened the Glenof Maternity and Family Hospital to help solve fertility problems in Ghana.
“We aim at providing quality healthcare in an environment of genuine care, warmth and support for patients attending hospital…we were motivated to come down and put up this facility to help solve Health problems in the country…our focus is to provide quality and affordable healthcare to all,” Dr Kofi Ofori-Amanfo said.
In line with this pledge, the 18 bed hospital which focuses on Infertility Treatment, Antenatal/Postnatal Services, Deliveries, Laboratory Services, ECG and Ultrasound scan accepts the National Health Insurance (NHIS) and other private insurance cards.
Other services provided at the facility include 24 hours Emergency Services, General OPD Consultation Services, Paediatric Specialist Consultation, Gynae / Obstetric Specialist Consultation, Surgical Specialist services and Physician Specialist Consultation, and Orthopaedic consultations
As part of replicating in the country the best of medical services they have learnt from South Africa and other countries where they have been practicing over the years, the group has fully tiled the two storey building and provided ultra-modern medical equipment which are well sterilized immediately after use.

Glenof Hospital has Two Consulting Rooms, fully fitted Emergency Theatres, Two sets of Theatres (fitted with Anesthesia machine) for surgeries for the treatment of both minor and major cases, an Emergency Room located at the entrance and well-resourced admission wards (VIP and VVIP inclusive) for faster recoveries.
With women health being their primary concern, the hospital has enough facilities for gynecological and Obstetric treatments including Infertility problems. It also has a fully furnished labour ward to care for all deliveries.
Dr Kofi Ofori-Amanfo who is the leader of the team of doctors that established the hospital, was trained at the nation’s premier hospital, Korle Bu Teaching Hospital before moving to South Africa where he has been working for the past 15 years.
He obtained his Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from the University of Ghana Medical School in 1986 before going to University of the Witwatersrand -Academic Medical Complex in South Africa, for further studies. He also holds a doctorate degree in gynaecology.
Glenof Hospital is run by five (5) doctors including a surgeon, physicain, Gynaecologist, Paediatrician, Orthopaedic and nurses.
There also exists an advanced laboratory and hence patients seeking to have quality healthcare can always have their lab tests there.
He has thus appealed to Ghanaian childless couples not to give up and there is ‘now a new hope for them; at Glenof Hospital, we would help change the fortunes of millions with the help of God.’
