The Isolo General Hospital has achieved a significant milestone with the setting up an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Clinic in the Hospital after 45 years of operation.
The ENT Clinic was officially inaugurated on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, by the Medical Director/CEO of the Hospital, Dr. Godwin Akhabhoa.
According to Dr. Akhabhoa, the initiative was taken to fulfill the Hospital’s vision of being a world-class one stop shop secondary Health care facility for the people of Isolo and its environ.
“I feel great that a significant milestone has been achieved as one of the cardinal parts of our vision statement and 2020/21 strategic plan for the Hospital”, he said.
Speaking further, Akhabhoa said he was motivated to set up the Clinic because it had always been his desire to provide Medicare for a large majority of the people, adding that there had been much agitation for the Clinic following a large number of ENT cases being referred to other hospitals.
Describing the development as a dream come true for the entire staff and management of the Hospital, Akhabhoa particularly thanked the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Health Service Commission, Dr. Benjamin Eniayewun and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Dr. Olusegun Ogboye for their encouragement and support.
The clinic is already open to the public.
