The new US Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie S. Sullivan was hard at work during the recent Investment Summit in Kumasi, opening a state of the art hospital, the HopeXChange Cancer Center.

Together with a number of world-class team of experts in Oncology including Dr. Mario Capello, the Director of the Center, Professor Elijah Paintsil, a Ghanaian Physician in Pediatrics from Yale University and others, the cancer centre was opened.

Dr. Thomas Mensah was excited to meet the team because as the Creator of Silicon Valley of Ghana, he believes the Telemedicine Programme at Silicon Valley will take this hospital to a whole new level to provide health care services to the entire West African Region.

The Telemedicine programme will have a node at the HopeXchange medical facility connecting to the Mayo Clinic in the US, the Yale Medical School, Medical Facilities in UK, Germany and South Africa.

Dr. Mensah will bring former US Astronaut Dr. Bobby Satcher, PhD MIT, MD Harvard and Telemedicine Expert for Silicon Valley Ghana now at MD Anderson Oncology Department to collaborate with the HopeXChange Hospital in Telemedicine and Oncology.
