"Engineers have been trained by the professionals sent by Mindray. They will ensure the laboratory operates properly 24/7, " Dr. Asare said in an interview with Ghana’s top media outlets. He expressed his strong faith that the new lab would help restore Korle Bu’s premier position as the country’s leading healthcare provider. "Treatment will be fast, as Mindray’s equipment will give instant results which can be sent electronically to the medical doctor. This will also help improve the healthcare we deliver to our patients," he added.
