Equipment worth N62 million has come the way of the Ogun State Government as donations by Project Cure, an American based civic organisation set to help the state shore up its health care delivery programme.
The state-of-the art equipment include ultra scan and X-ray machines.
The donations are being channeled through the State’s Hospitals Management Board and would be distributed to the General and Specialist hospitals as well as Primary Health Care Centres across the 20 Local Government Areas, according to Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Health Matters, Jibola Amosu, who said, it will add to efforts of the State Government to render qualitative health care service to residents.
While receiving the equipment at the Drug Central Store, Oke-Ilewo, in Abeokuta Mr. Amosu thanked Project Cure and enjoined other public spirited organisations to take a cue from the gesture
Also speaking at the ceremony, the Permanent Secretary, Hospitals Management Board, Oyin Sodipe, said the development would go a long way in enhancing diagnosis and health care delivery in the State and urged hospitals that would benefit from the gesture to take good care of them so that they would serve the people for long.
In a related development, the Ibikunle Amosun administration got a pat on the back for taking steps to turn around the fortunes of the Olabisi Onabanjo Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Sagamu.
The acting Chief Medical Director, Adetunji Ajibode, gave the commendation while conducting journalists round facilities of the hospital, and indicated that a number of positive changes had taken place since the present administration assumed office.
Mr. Ajibode stated that the development was the driving force that had been propelling his management team to embark on programmes that had greatly improved service delivery.
