Eastern Star Awards Winners 2018

Akwasi Acquah (Osagyefo Award – Health (Service Provider))

Alexander Akwasi Acquah was born to Mr. Paul Acquah and Mrs. Cecilia Acquah who are all natives of Akyem Oda in the Eastern Region, on the 8th December 1974. On completion of his Ordinary and Advanced level education at the Oda Secondary School, he pursued journalism at the Ghana Institute of Journalism where he majored in political reporting.

With over 15 years’ practice of journalism in both Print and electronic media, he had an appointment as the
spokesperson of a newly created and arguably, the biggest social intervention programme: NHIS. That was
the beginning of his career as a healthcare entrepreneur. He used the opportunity to study how to run quality Health Care facilities for the ultimate satisfaction of patients.

In 2009, he inaugurated the Community Hospital, at Ashongman in Accra. The Hospital grew successfully,
and after three years got another branch in Akyem Oda in the Eastern Region. A third facility opened at Ashaiman in Accra, making Alexander Akwasi Acquah, the CEO of The Community Hospitals Group. Now, with two more branches in Kukurantumi and the Kaneshie market as well as a recent one under Construction in Somanya, together with four mortuary facilities, The Community Hospital (TCH) Group, has become, possibly, the biggest private Hospital Group in Ghana, with a great influence in the Eastern Region. The Group has already rolled up a programme to build a community hospital in every District in Ghana especially those that do
not have access to health facilities.
