Professor Jacob Plange-Rhule was both a partner and a doctor at Adum Clinic, Kumasi. After graduating from the School of Medical Sciences, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in 1984, Professor Plange-Rhule obtained his PhD in Renal Physiology from the University of Manchester and also trained in Internal Medicine. He became a Consultant Physician at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) where he started the Hypertension Clinic and also became an Associate Professor of Physiology at the School of Medical Sciences (SMS), KNUST.
Professor Plange-Rhule joined the founder of Adum Clinic, the late Dr. Lewis R. Roberts, in the 1990s. With his rich experience in Internal Medicine especially in the management of Hypertension, Nephrology and Respiratory medicine, he complemented the expertise of the other partners, making Adum Clinic highly sought after for medical care. With his vast social network, he also brought many corporate clients to the Clinic. Despite his appointment as Vice Rector in 2011 and later Rector of Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons (GCPS) in 2015, Professor Plange-Rhule never abandoned Adum Clinic but demonstrated his commitment to the Clinic by providing administrative support and helping solve any problems that arose. He was very approachable and loved by staff and patients of the Clinic.
Prof., we were all hoping that you would return to Adum Clinic after retiring from the GCPS so that we would together take the clinic to higher heights, only to hear that you have been called back to your Maker. We shall miss you dearly.
Fare thee well Prof. May your loving and gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
