Anambra Govt. to upgrade 3 hospitals
Dr Sunny Ekwunife, Senior Special Adviser to Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra on General Hospitals, has said that three selected hospitals would be upgraded to a world class status in the state.
Ekwunife disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Awka.
According to him, the benefiting hospitals are General Hospital Onitsha, General Hospital Enugwu-Ukwu and General Hospital Ekwulobia.
“The governor gave us the mandate to take a look at the state hospitals and we chose three of them to be of international standard.
“The upgrading will go a long way in promoting medical tourism with the beneficial effect of generating more funds into the state coffers,” he said.
Ekwunife said that government had also embarked on the uplift of other 15 selected hospitals to cater effectively for the needs of the citizens.
“In order to address the excesses of private hospitals in Anambra, government has approved the equipment of 15 hospitals with drugs and staff.
“We will be providing all their needs, which range from drilling of boreholes, rehabilitating buildings, providing drugs and increasing staff strength,” he said.
