About: The physical facility for the College was initially started as a Students Hostel for the Swedru School of Business (SWESBUS) in 2003. The ground floor with a total capacity for 200 students was completed in 2006. The facility was Christened “Bempomaa Memorial Hostel” in memory of the late mother of the Founder of the College. The patronage of the facility was very low. Consequently financial returns were also very low. The facility was restructured with the construction of two additional floors to start programs in Nursing and Midwifery. Other Investment partners insisted that the name be changed since it seemed to favor one person. Consequently, the name was changed to GLOBAL COLLEGE OF HEALTH SCIENCE. It was also decided that other health science programs should be added including Physician (Medical) Assistants, Disaster Science, ICT, and Medical Laboratory Technology. Later the Investment Partners agreed for the addition of Business and Management programs to better serve the broader interest of the communities in the catchment areas. With the introduction of the Business Programs, the National Accreditation Board requested for a change of the College’s name to reflect the new programs. After much difficulty, BIMAKS College of Business and Health Sciences was selected from among the many suggested names submitted to the Board. The Board finally approved the name on 4th February 2013. BIMAKS is an acronym derived from the letters of the names of Investment Partners. From this an inspiring philosophy has been coined. B – Believe, I— In, M—Mastering, A— (your) Abilities, K— (through) Knowledge, S— (and) Service.
About: Medicare College of Applied Sciences began in 1995 as Medicare Research Centre, a reputable laboratory that offered excellent services in clinical diagnosis. That same year the cenntre commenced the training of laboratory assistants for use within the laboratory. The efficiency with which these technicians performed their duty endeared them to the hearts of other clinics and laboratories in Kumasi. Soon after our first graduates passed out, other students enrolled to undertake apprenticeship at Medicare Research Centre. All our products are highly motivated because of the excellent practical tuition we have given over the years. Today, they are working in clinics and hospitals, both private and government owned, around the country, with some managing hospital laboratories. In October 2010, it was decided to institutionalize our training program. For that reason, the Medicare College of Applied Sciences was formed to offer diploma in Laboratory Practice and Management. We believe that though useful, theoretical education has limited benefits, as graduates are usually not well prepared for work in clinical laboratories and industry due to their limited practical knowledge. Often, such graduates would have to receive on the job training in order to be productive. That is expensive to employers, and explains why many graduates are unemployed today. Medicare College of Applied Sciences is, today, pursuing an alternative approach to graduate unemployment. The policy is to lay more emphasis on practical training for students in their chosen fields of endeavor. This conviction has prompted the establishment of well-equipped laboratories for the training of our precious students. Furthermore, our students are trained to do research in areas relevant to their training, and to be independent and assertive graduates. For these reasons we expect them to come out highly qualified, motivated, and ready to work as career technicians.

About: Heritage Christian College (HCC) is a higher educational institution sponsored by the Churches of Christ. It has its roots in the establishment of the National Bible Institute (NBI), a two-year preacher training school established in January 1982 by the Nsawam Road Church of Christ, Ghana, to train gospel ministers. Daniel Ampadu-Asiamah served as the pioneer Director of NBI until December 1984 when he moved to Togo as a missionary. Following that, Dan L. McVey, then resident American missionary served as NBI Director until June 1999 when Samuel Twumasi-Ankrah was appointed as Principal of NBI. In 2001, Twumasi- Ankrah’s proposal to transform NBI into an accredited liberal arts college received an enthusiastic support by the oversight elders of the Nsawam Road Church, and based on their wise counsel, the then National Bible Institute was integrated into the Heritage Christian College system in December 2001. Thus began the long process of developing HCC to become an accredited Christian university college affiliated with the Churches of Christ. Through the generosity of several individuals and congregations in Ghana and the United States, HCC was able to purchase a piece of land at Afiaman, Accra, and develop key infrastructure as well as distinctive academic programmes which were required for the grant of accreditation by the government of Ghana. In February 2012, HCC received affiliation status from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST), Kumasi; a mentorship status which by law is required in order that KNUST shall award certification to HCC graduates till HCC eventually becomes an academic institution chartered by the President of Ghana. Finally, in March 2015, the National Accreditation Board of Ghana granted HCC both institutional and programme accreditation certificates. A particular mention ought to be made of the inestimable contributions made by certain groups of people as a result of which HCC has obtained its reputable accreditation status: Douglas & Margaret Boateng who paid for the cost of the land that serves as HCC campus; George Chisholm and the Traverse City Church of Christ, Michigan, whose initiative and sacrifices made it possible to raise the funds needed for the construction of the initial HCC buildings; Deon & Susan Fair who along with others set up the HCC Foundation and continue to provide financial, technical and academic support; Shane & Melissa McClung whose continued support remains pivotal ; and the Nsawam Road Church of Christ, Accra, Ghana whose support and oversight role is the bedrock of HCC
