The Public Relations Officer of the Police Hospital, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Juliana Obeng, commended the company for the refurbishment.
ASP Obeng said even though the hospital was considered a big one and with adequate facilities, it had many problems, including the need for expansion.
She, therefore, appealed to organisations, philanthropists and public-spirited individuals to emulate what the company had done and come to their aid to help rehabilitate the dilapidated structures of the hospital.
