Etisalat donates to Gbagada general hospital

One of Nigeria’s telecommunications service providers, Etisalat Nigeria, has reinforced its commitment to the development of the health sector with the donation of computers to Gbagada General Hospital in Lagos.

Speaking at the handover ceremony, the firm’s Director, Regulatory and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Mr. Ikenna Ikeme, said the move was in furtherance of its commitment to continuously support efforts that improve access to quality healthcare for Nigerians.

“Education, health and environment are the three pillars on which our CSR drive rests. We are happy to partner with the Lagos State Government in using technology to advance the operations of this hospital, because this initiative aligns strongly with our belief that innovation can be used to transform anything including healthcare.

“The computers will go a long way in impacting on service efficiency in key departments, such as medical records, procurement, HR/administration, pathology, audit and accounts,” he said.

Receiving the equipment, the hospital’s Medical Director, Dr. Tayo Lawal, commended the firm for the support, adding: “We are very happy to receive these computers, as they would go a long way in making our work easier and our staff will be further encouraged by the gesture.”

Manager, CSR, Etisalat Nigeria, Oyetola Oduyemi, said the computers would assist the hospital staff in becoming more efficient and productive and support the drive towards digitalising its processes.
