I hope they are actually maintaining the standards they claim to have. The current Ebola scare around the World will put pressure on hospitals. Most of our Nigerian hospitals, especially the government ones will not be able to keep up. It looks beautiful though…

You are right Tinuke, it is very difficult to run anything, talk less of a world standard hospital in Nigeria. With epileptic power supply and no pipe borne water cost of delivering healthcare is very high. There is need for co-operation among private hospitals and business men who can provide the funds for infrastructure. The ebola is an easily containable virus once it has been identified. I like to agree with you that hospitals need to be very vigilant and act fast once anyone is suspected.

We really need more hospitals that have health care delivery as their primary focus in this country. Kudos!

Thank you Coal City for dropping by. You are right. Nigeria, and Africa as a whole needs more hospitals that are well run and that meet world standards. This is where the government and well-meaning individuals can help a lot.
