A leading tertiary health care institution in the country, EKO hospital has reiterated its determination to provide unique and excellent services through high standard professionalism and remain a pace-setter for change, growth and development.

The hospital hopes to achieve these by breaking new grounds into medical care research, science and training, as a haven for high quality health care in Nigeria, with a goal to ensure high quality patient centred service, training and innovation.

A Joint Chairman of the hospital, Dr. Sunny Kuku, while tracing the history of the health institution at a press conference recently noted that, EKO hospital which was established in 1982 and in 1991 became the first and currently the only hospital public liability company had rendered first class customer focused clinical services for its various patients with empathy and social integration.

Kuku said the hospital located at the highbrow Ikeja area of Lagos, has continued to be at the forefront in radio and chemotherapy services with patients being referred from all parts of the country. He added that between January and December 2011, the hospital has treated 500 cancer patients with radiotherapy and over 400 patients with chemotherapy.

He said the hospital’s radioiodine therapy for thyroid cancer treatment (the only functioning centre in the country) is recognized both within and outside the country, just as its helical CT scan continues to play a leading role in radio-diagnosis and its colbalt 60 equipment is an asset to its armamentarium in the effective treatment of Nigerian with cancer who require radiotherapy.

Kuku who used the occasion to announce the appointment of a new Chief Medical Director of the hospital in person of Dr. Olusegun Odukoya noted that, the man with wealth of experience in clinical and administrative endeavours, will bring his experience to bear and take the hospital to the next level

He said the appointment of a man who was Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist to the North Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust as the Director of Postgraduate Studies for many years and an honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer in the department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the University of Sheffield was a round peg in a round hole.
