Life International Hospital lauded for healthcare delivery



ANAMBRA State Government has commended Life International Hospital for providing world-class Modular Operation Theatre and Standard Intensive Care Unit to complement efforts toward functional healthcare service delivery.

  “This is a welcome development and gateway to strong healthcare system in the state,” Commissioner for Health, Dr Vincent Okpala said.

  He made the comment while inaugurating the modular operation theatre and standard care unit at the hospital in Awka.

  Dr Okpala noted that the hospital was inaugurated by Gov. Willie Obiano in 2O18.

  The commissioner praised the management of the hospital for the upgrade.

  According to him, Gov. Obiano’s emphasis has been on public private partnership in order to provide Ndi Anambra with standard and functional healthcare services.

  “Government has created the enabling environment for people who are interested in public private partnership in the state to invest in the healthcare sector.

  “The project you see here is a private venture, which actually demonstrates what government is discussing about medical tourism in the state.

  “It is a purposefully built facility. I have passed through this facility; everything is where it needs to be and this shows vision.

  “The wards, private wards depict what we are talking about; how healthcare facility needs to be. So, the intensive care unit and modular operating unit are well-equipped.”

  The commissioner said that the hospital could deliver care to critical patients, who might need the service because they could actually provide those cares.

  He noted that the hospital would also help to stop medical tourism outside Nigeria.    

  Chief Executive Officer , Life Hospital,  Joseph Ikechebelu said the hospital was multi-specialist hospital with pioneering strides in endoscopy, fertility management and other multi dimensional fields of medical practice.

  Prof. Ikechebelu explained that the hospital started out with opening of a modular operation theatre and standard intensive care unit that also supported by qualified personnel.

  “Modular operating  theatre reduces the risk of surgical site infections, which is the second most common site of healthcare associated infections that causes death by up 77 per cent, if occurs deep at the site.

  “Other advantages of modular operation theatre are improved health and safety; there are minimal site disruption-lesser disruption and noise produced in comparison with traditional methods of operation theatre construction.

  “No compromise on quality-none of the compromises associated with bouncy floors, cavities, sharp edges and others.
