ACCRA, Ghana – ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Ghana (Deepwater) Limited (ExxonMobil), and co-venturers Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) and GOIL Offshore Ghana Limited, donated equipment to the Medical Intensive Care Unit of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
The September 23 donation included an arterial blood gas machine, a Seimens Rapid Point 500e, two video laryngoscopes, a McGrath MAC Handle 9X1, and video laryngoscope blades, and 1,000 KN95 face masks.
