Hospitals in Accra

Yesterday, I recieved a question from one of my readers about what good hospitals there are in Accra. This is what I answered:

About hospitals, I dont know much more than you do. Korle Bu and 37 Military hospital are the two big government hospitals in Accra and among those with operating theaters and specialized personnel. I have also heard about the private hospital Lister Hospital from some expats working with the UN, but have never been there myself. They have a nice website, see this link. I live in Tema and have been to the simple but nice Caiqo Hospital in Tema's community 10 when my visiting siblings fell ill. They dont have any website or contact online. I also found a complete (?) list of hospitals online, but the four I mentioned above are unfortunately all I know of personally.

Can anyone else fill in? Where do you go when you or your family members are sick?

The other major hospital is Nyaho Medical Centre in the Airport Residential area (tel +233 21 775341; fax +233 21 777593; no website that I could find). Some of us also use clinics/hospitals associated with workplaces, and/or neighbourhoods

Thanks Nina, I thought Nyaho was just a lab or clinic, so I learned something today!

Is Dr Adrian Oddoye still at Akai House Clinic in Osu?
The Trust Hospital in Osu was always good.
Also Dr. John at the Beijing Clinic in osu is fantastic, especially for malaria.
