Dr. Bernard Opoku-Mireku received an oxygen cylinder on behalf of 37 Military Hospital as a donation from Dr. Tilly Brako during a Thursday’s broadcast of ‘Your Take’ hosted by Yaw Sakyi on DNT.
The oxygen tank was a special donation given by the wife of Ghanaian highlife legend Ben Brako as a token of her appreciation for the professional treatment she received at the hospital while battling Coronavirus.
In her exclusive interview with Jermaine Nkrumah on ‘Diaspora Weekly’, she described in detail the agony she went through and the mistreatment she faced with other hospitals before finally being admitted at 37 Military Hospital.
She recalled how much pain she was in by the time she reached the hospital and how professional and compassionate Dr. Opoku-Mireku was about her situation. He was able to calm her down and give her treatment to ease the pain.
Dr. Brako admitted to seriously thinking she was not going to make it. Thus when the ambulance arrived at the 37 Military Hospital, the wave and the kiss she blew to her husband were suspected to be her last to him.
But then Dr. Opoku Mireku said the following reassuring words to her: “Madam, I will make sure you leave here alive.” The care that followed was so professional that she promised to “sing from the roof tops about the professionalism at the 37 Military Hospital.
Having since left the country to attend to her own pediatric practice in Lima, Ohio in the United States, Dr. Brako has promised that the oxygen canister donation is just the beginning.
