Staff Exodus Hits Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital


Over 200 nurses and other health workers left Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in 2023, according to Professor Otchere Addai-Mensah, the hospital’s chief executive officer, who expressed concern about the departure of healthcare professionals.

Professor Addai-Mensah expressed concern about how this mass departure will affect the hospital’s operations and underlined how urgently the government had to step in to solve the personnel issue.

Professor Addai-Mensah stressed the importance of these departing employees at a meeting with the delegation of Finance Minister Mohammed Amin Adam and encouraged the authorities to move quickly to fill the positions.

In order to maintain continuity in patient care and service delivery at the hospital, he called for quick action to replace the departing staff.

Professor Addai-Mensah emphasized the severe equipment shortage the hospital is facing in addition to the personnel issue, and she urged the government to give departmental retooling top priority.

The plea comes amidst growing concerns about the strain on healthcare facilities nationwide and underscores the pressing need for collaborative efforts to address the healthcare challenges facing the country.
