Ridge Hospital

Ridge Hospital

Accra, Ghana

A new image in line with international standards

The Ministry of Health of Ghana launched the rehabilitation and upgrading project to transform Ridge Hospital in Accra into a regional facility. The construction work, carried out by Bouygues Bâtiment International, is being funded Exim Bank.
Hospital Ridge is an essential project for the city. Due to increasing patient numbers, the current hospital is overstretched and the refurbishment is necessary to provide extra capacity. The plans provide for a modern, fully functional facility complete with operating theaters. The revamped hospital will be in line with international standards and represent one of the most advanced medical facilities in West Africa. 
It will include a new 420-bed building, a treatment block and a cutting-edge maternity ward. In addition, some of the building’s electricity supply will be provided by solar power, enabling it to meet environmental standards. The building is expected to be completed in 2016. 
During the construction work, the hospital will continue to operate as normal.

The Exim Bank of America is financing the Hospital Ridge project. The bank wanted an American company to be in charge of construction and at the end of 2012, Americaribe decided to seize the opportunity in Ghana to expand its horizons and create a subsidiary: Americaribe Ghana Ltd. Americaribe, based in Florida, will export the goods and services required for the project and its subsidiary will supervise the construction work on site.
