Halcom Management Services to Manage the Bank Hospital - BoG

Halcom Management Services (HMS) of South Africa has been appointed through a ‘two-phase’ tender process by the Bank of Ghana to manage the Bank Hospital on its behalf according to the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Ernest Addison.

He disclosed this in his Keynote Address at the formal opening of the Bank Hospital on Friday, 9th July 2021. Dr. Addison recognized the fact that the Bank lacks the expertise to effectively manage the hospital complex, hence the initiation of a process to partner with the private sector to effectively and sustainably manage The Bank Hospital. 

He noted the management company was selected by on competitive tender process of two phases adding that phase 1 focused on the technical capacity of the bidding parties whilst phase two targeted requesting for more detailed technical information as well as a highly detailed financial proposal and model.

“After going through a lengthy selection process, Halcom Management Services (HMS) of South Africa was appointed by the Bank to manage the Hospital on behalf of the Bank. And subsequently the Committee commenced detailed due diligence of the counterparty ahead of final negotiations,” says Dr. Addison.

According Dr. Addison, this was necessitated by the Bank foreseeing a conflicting functions of the Bank’s principal function that established it and the additional function of managing a hospital. 

“In as much as we acknowledged the usefulness of these ongoing projects to support health care and recreational facilities of bank staff, the Board and the Management recognised the conflicting roles in pursuing the core mandate of the Bank, which is to ensure price and financial stability to foster growth, and effectively managing a hospital,” he noted 

The Board and Management of the Bank consequently made a decision that would ensure sustainable management of the facility to best serve the interest of the Bank and the country at large. 

The Bank Hospital’s operations would be as a commercial entity operating as a general hospital, to provide world-class OPD services, diagnostic services, and medical urology. 

The state-of-the-art Bank Hospital is would add to the efforts at addressing the health care needs of the country, the Governor concluded.

The Bank Hospital is a 65-bedroom state-of-the-art facility constructed at £80million.
