The new "Mega hospitals" and how they are going to save your life…maybe

1 Mins read

Health in the Nigerian polity is often discussed in terms of “hospitals built“….

While all these are important to some extent…no building has ever saved a life…on its own. We will not be able to avoid the critical thinking required to build a health care system. But in the typical Nigerian way…we are trying to build our way out of a problem…

Apollo one of the largest healthcare groups in Asia and best hospital in India is planning to invest $175 million on five new specialty hospitals for children (four in India and one in Nigeria) . I hope that this is good news for the country, and that specialist care will become more accessible to Nigerians. It will not be cheap but it will at least open up a few opportunities for those of us that cannot afford to go to Germany for common colds or strained knees.

Thisday reports that work has commenced on the $150 million Justice Karibi Whyte Mega Specialist Hospital in Rivers State. The state-of-the-art mega specialist hospital that is expected to be one of the best in sub-saharan Africa on completion, is being built by the Amaechi-led administration with Clinotech Diagnostics and Pharmaceuticals of Canada as the project consultants.
