The Lagos State Government has begun phased renovations of General Hospitals across the state, in line with its commitment to improving healthcare infrastructure in the country.

This was disclosed by the state government by the Lagos State Commissioner for Health Akin Abayomi during an inspection of two General Hospital being refurbished.

The two health facilities inspected by the commissioner were the Harvey Road Health Centre and the Ebute Metta Health Centre.

He said that it is the plan of the state government to “do a deep refurbishment” of all general hospitals in the state, raising their standards to globally acceptable standards.

Abayomi said, “Mr. Governor already knows the state of the General Hospitals and his mandate is that we do a deep refurbishment in all the general hospitals and bring them all up to the standard that is acceptable globally.

“Instead of repairing the general hospitals in little pieces every year, we are coming to a number of hospitals every year to do a complete refurbishing so that by the time we finish, it will look like a brand new hospital. We intend to refurbish between six-eight hospitals in a year.”
