The PHC was created to meet the health needs of the population that is predominantly farmers with cocoa as their main cash crop. With the increasing demand for more quality services, the PHC was on December 16, 2013, upgraded into an integrated health centre. The health centre has a bed capacity of 14 distributed in five wards and a staff strength of 17 including 3 security guards.
