Clinic built with Seabee help opens in Ghana

With help from U.S. Navy Seabees, a 3,400-square-foot medical facility opened this week for residents of Tema, Ghana, according to a Navy news release.

Over the past seven months, soldiers with Ghana’s army teamed with Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 40, from Rota, Spain, and NMCB 74, out of Gulfport, Miss., to build the facility that includes two medical wards, two treatment rooms, four offices, a dispensary, medical storage room and bathrooms with showers, the release stated.

The effort was part of the Navy’s Africa Partnership Station, a program set up to strengthen U.S.-African ties.
