Oshiomhole rates Edo hospital high in healthcare delivery

By Tony Ehighiale, Benin


Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has stated that the state’s 200-bed Central Hospital is more beautiful and will be better equipped than many hospitals in Europe and Asia.



Speaking during an inspection of the hospital yesterday, the Governor assured that the 200-bed Central Hospital which has attained 98% completion will be adequately maintained to ensure its durability and effective service delivery to the people.


According to Oshiomhole, “When I said at the beginning that our intention is to build what I called a five-star hospital, most people tried to imagine what that meant, but I am sure just looking at the building, I don’t know of any hotel in Nigeria, in terms of aesthetics, that has a better appeal than this.


“And this is the sort of thing you find in Europe, and some other advanced economies. If you are in the 21st Century, begin to think as if you are in the 22nd Century because the world has changed and it will keep changing. The pace of change will keep accelerating.”


“The whole idea is that when a typical Edo person comes from a village like mine, if he gets in here and realizes that even the environment psychologically impacts on him and he begins to appreciate that he is important, he is in the hands of professional healthcare providers, that way, that forgotten rural man, for once, will have access to modern facilities.


“You don’t need to board an airline to London, to India, to Europe to be told how hospitals look there. I am sure that those of you who may have for one reason or another travelled, there are many hospitals in Europe and in India that are not as beautiful as this.”
