We tried in vain to shut down Obengfo Hospital – MDC

The Medical and Dental Council has strongly rejected blame by a section of the public for the continuous operation of the Advanced Body Sculpt Centre at the Obenfo Hospital following the mysterious death of the Deputy CEO for the NEIP Stacy Offei Darko at the facility.



The council had on two occasions moved in to halt the operations of the facility on the back of complaints by some patients that they were having complications after surgery.

Dr. Dominic Obeng-Andoh, who has been charged with murder by the police is currently in custody after he was denied bail by an Accra magistrate.

Registrar of the Dental and medical council Eli Atukpui told Starr News the council had done everything within its mandate to ensure the hospital ceased operation.

He expressed concern over the inability of the police to ensure the facility remained closed.

“You would have noted that attempts were made previously to have the institutions closed down and…that institution was really closed down on two occasions.

“Has the Medical and Dental Council taken steps to do whatever that body is set up to do, has the Medical and Dental Council done what exactly is was supposed to have done, the answer is Yes. So if the Medical and Dental Council has played and there is a failure in a particular institution then I don’t think the blame would have to come to the Medical and Dental Council,” Dr. Atikpui said.

The Medical and Dental Council has revealed that Dr. Obeng-Andoh was operating illegally after he failed to renew his license which expired in 2013.

It will be recalled that the Medical and Dental Council closed down Obengfo Hospital in January 2017 with plans to completely evacuate patients who were undergoing treatment at the facility.

The closure on Thursday [January 27] was the second in a legal action against the facility after the council revoked the license of Dr. Obeng-Andoh in 2013 for operating illegally.

This follows complaints by some patients that they were having complications after visiting the plastic surgery section of the hospital, that is, the Advance Body Sculpture Centre.

The Medical and Dental Council subsequently looked into the allegations and came out with the conclusion that the facility’s CEO Dr Dominic Obeng Andoh is not a certified surgeon and is, therefore, practicing illegally.

But Dr Obeng Andoh insisted that he was trained in cosmetic surgery in Florida, the USA for two weeks and was awarded a certificate.

He said his hospital was locked down without a warrant.

But some four months down the lane, operations begun in earnest at the hospital.
