According to him, the institution has over the years proved beyond reasonable doubt that it has the capacity to provide the nation and the world at large with efficient health professionals adding that products of the schoo lPhysician assistants, community nutritionist, disease control officers, field technicians, medical laboratory technologists, registered dental surgery assistants, mental health and clinical psychiatry  are located everywhere in the country.

He said, with their meager internally generated fund, the health college has been able to acquire 3000 acres of land, provided more infrastructure, office accommodation, conference hall, guess houses, library, expansion of ICT facilities and psychosocial centre.

He included that the institution has also collaborated with external universities and organizations in order to achieve its mission which is to educate and train well motivated knowledgeable and skillful health professionals who are capable of providing quality services to all people in all sectors especially in remote and underserved communities.

Hon. Stephen Kunsu made the call when making a statement on the Floor of Parliament today to congratulate the Kintampo College of Health and Wellbeing for winning a Gold award bestowed on the school by Beton Magazine.
