CEO of Obengfo Hospital falls sick in police cells

CEO of Obengfo Hospital falls sick in police cellsChief Medical Officer of Obengfo Hospital Dominic Obeng-Andoh is on admission at the Police Hospital after reporting of ill-health hours after he was arrested by the police.

The beleaguered CEO, Dr Obeng-Andoh is under investigation for the death of Stacy Offei Darko, who was the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Plan (NEIP).

She is reported to have died on Monday, May 21 at the advanced body sculpt centre but her family was only alerted of her demise three days after.

Obengfo Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer was picked up by the Homicide Unit of the Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to aid in investigations.

But he was sent to the Nima Police Station on Monday due to lack of a cell at the CID headquarters but he was, however, rushed to the Police Hospital after complaining of sickness.

He is currently receiving treatment.

Meanwhile, Registrar and CEO of the Medical and Dental Council Dr. Eli Atikpui says disgraced doctor Dominic Obeng-Andoh was not licensed to practice at Accra’s Obengfo Hospital during the untimely death of Stacy Offei Darko, a Deputy Chief Executive Officer for National Entrepreneurship Innovation Programme (NEIP).

“We have made our position clear,” Atikpui said in an interview Tuesday with Joy FM’s Daniel Dadzie on the Super Morning Show, “Dr. Obeng-Andoh has no valid license.”

Atikpui said that some time between 2012 and 2013, Dr Obeng-Andoh appeared before the Council, was found guilty of medical malpractice, and suspended for 3 years. But under the law, once a practitioner files an appeal, a stay of execution goes into effect, giving Obeng-Andoh permission to continue his practice until the appeal was determined. Obeng-Andoh, however, failed to renew his license, which gave the Council grounds to shut down his operation.
The Medical and Dental Council consequently looked into operations at the Hospital and found out that he had not renewed his license for years.
