Ghana’s First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, raised funds through The Rebecca Foundation to build the new Mother and Baby Unit (MBU) at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi. The 160-bed EDGE-certified facility houses the maternity, neonatal and pediatric intensive care units of KATH.

Attend this free webinar on Wednesday, April 24 from 8:00 am to 9:30 am (Washington, D.C. local time) to learn more about the free EDGE software and the benefits of EDGE certification for the hospitals. An innovation of IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, EDGE helps hospital developers realize greater operational savings, ensure patient comfort and achieve a higher level of environmental responsibility.

This webinar will focus on the size of the investment opportunity in green hospitals. Research will be shared on the return on investment for green hospitals in more than 30 countries, with a case study featuring the Mother and Baby (MBU) Unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, Ghana.

The project was a finalist for the 2018 Financial Times Transformational Business Award.
