Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Mathias Kojo Djan, the District Vice Chairman said the project which is estimated to cost GH¢ 150,000.00 would have offices, conference and recreational halls and hostel facilities.
He appealed to public-spirited organisations to support the project.
He said the Pensioners Medical Scheme would supplement the National Health Insurance Scheme to take the health care of members.
Mr Djan said the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi and the Atonsu-Agogo Hospital have been selected to operate the scheme.
