Chrispod Hospital holds free medical screening for churches


Chrispod Hospital and Diagnostic Centre has organised a free health screening exercise for over 600 members of the Faith Community Baptist Church in Madina and Winners Chapel in North Kaneshie, both in the Greater Accra Region.

The exercise forms part of the healthcare provider’s corporate social responsibility, and was also in solidarity with the Madina branch of Faith Community Baptist Church on the occasion of their 40th anniversary celebration.

“Our hospital’s vision is to give quality health service to each and everyone, even if they cannot afford it. Free screening gives people opportunity to at least do a health screening,” said Hema Gavhankar, Administrator of Chrispod Hospital.

Touching on details of the free health screening exercise, she added that: “The first step of the process is to see a doctor for free consultation. We are checking blood vitals, body mass index and random blood sugar, among others,” Madam Gavhankar said.

Meanwhile, she said the facility is currently offering a discount of 20 percent on all healthcare services for all patients who walk into its office located at Dome in Accra. The move is meant to promote access to quality healthcare at affordable prices.

“We are here to serve humanity through the services we provide, and for this reason have kept our lab services at an affordable discount of 20 percent to reflect our vision of bringing quality healthcare services to the doorsteps of everyone. Additionally, the exercise we are undertaking serves as an opportunity for the public, particularly the poor, to at least check their health-status,” she noted.

While underscoring the need for regular screening and check-ups, she told the B&FT that her outfit has put in place measures geared toward ensuring the participants’ safety.

Ms. Gavhankar expressed her gratitude to participants for turning up in their numbers, adding that the exercise was an opportunity for the hospital to make itself known to the public.
