The Health Facilities and Regulatory Agency of Ghana undertook an exercise to close down some health facilities that were operating without a license. This exercise was largely done in Accra and Kumasi. This exercise affected Obengfo Hospital in Accra.
This Hospital is well known for the practice of plastic surgery where some women do go for buttocks and breast enlargement. At this hospital, women are able to modify their bodies into shapes that are pleasing to the eyes. According to Dr Philip Bannor, the registrar for Health Facilities and Regulatory Agency, Obengfo Hospital was operating without a license.
The hospital was not qualified to provide the kind of services it delivered to citizens. Dr Obeng Andoh, CEO of Obengfo Hospital took legal action to challenge the decision of the regulatory agency and also to compel them to grant him a license to operate in the country.
The case was taken to Accra High Court, Criminal Court Division Two. Unfortunately, he lost the case after the court also affirmed that he was operating without a license and that is a crime.
