St. John of God Hospital is located at Duayaw Nkwanta, the municipal capital of Tano North. It is the municipal hospital for Tano North and serves as the main referral center for Orthopedics and trauma cases in the Municipality and beyond. The hospital started as a Maternity home in 1953 before it was taken over by the Catholic Diocese of Kumasi in 1955 through an appeal made by the traditional council and erected to the status of a hospital in 1956. The hospital commenced its operation with the following staff: Dr. Adcock and Dr. Mrs. Magdalene Adcock (medical officers), Rev. Fr. Ooyen (Chaplain), Bro. John Velbert and Madam Comfort Marko, a ward assistant. These medical officers were Dutch expatriates and were succeeded by their compatriots after the expiration of their contract years of employment.
