A leading private medical facility, New Crystal Health Services (NCHS), has received capital injection of approximately 5.7 million dollars to expand its facilities and services.
It comprises a loan of 2.5 million dollars from International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector arm of the World Bank, and equity of 3 million euros from impact investment group, Investisseurs & Partenaires (I&P) with headquarters in France.
The capital injection will help New Crystal upgrade its existing network of clinics, add new and ultra-modern facilities in the fast-growing suburbs of Ashaiman and Tema, as well as broaden its diagnostic services.
Chief Executive of New Crystal Health Services Wisdom Amegbletor says patrons will witness a very significant change in the entire health service delivery value chain when the project is completed.
New Crystal has been the highest ranked health facility in the Ghana Club 100, and it is also the first health facility to secure a loan from the IFC.
