Among others, Dr. Tamaklo highlighted Nyaho’s persistent approached focused on Nyaho patients and their families:
Our vision really is to be Africa’s most trusted name in healthcare, which is extremely ambitious but we believe that it is possible as trust is really about the human connection and the ability to meet the need at the time. Our objective is to build trust between our patients and the Nyaho healthcare system by ensuring that we consistently deliver care at an international standard of care such that Ghanaians need not go to countries such as India, the USA and the UK for quality healthcare at a significant cost. At the core of our mission is a desire to transform lives by surpassing expectations in healthcare by leveraging innovative solutions, a disciplined approach and a focus on the needs of our patients and their families.
