GE, one of the world’s leading Digital Industrial companies, recently equipped Nigeria’s first Breast & Gynaecology Centre with state-of-the-arts medical machineries.

The centre, which was unveiled recently in Lagos, in partnership with Reddington Group reaffirms GE Healthcare’s commitment to achieving the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Sustainable Development Goal by improving access to affordable healthcare, specifically for women.

In a statement made available to THISDAY, the General Manager, GE, Healthcare in West & Central Africa, Eyong Ebai said: “We are delighted to play a major role in the history of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and healthcare in Nigeria as the first-of-its-kind healthcare centre in Nigeria was unveiled. At GE Healthcare, we develop holistic interventions that link care from home to the hospital. Our solutions are aimed at improving clinical quality and improving patient outcomes amongst other things.”

He added: “Equipping the Breast & Gynaecology Centre at Reddington with these integrated solutions will help healthcare providers at the Centre deliver better holistic healthcare for more women.”

The Centre is one of the few dedicated women’s healthcare centres in Nigeria and First 3D Auto-Ultrasound Breast Centre in the broader sub-Saharan Africa environs.
