Edo Varsity Teaching Hospital Commences Three-Day Free Treatment

The refurbished Auchi General Hospital now named the Edo State University Teaching Hospital has commenced a three-day free medical treatment for residents of the area.

At the unveiling of the refurbished hospital by the Edo State Government, the state Deputy Governor, Comrade Philip Shaibu, who represented the State Governor, Godwin Obeseki, said the hospital has been remodelled, furnished and strengthened to provide services not only to the residents of the state but to Nigerians generally.

The governor who encouraged the residents to make use of the opportunity to receive free medical services noted that the three-day treatment is not tribe, religion, and ethnicity-based. 

 “The importance of the teaching hospital is to provide quality healthcare delivery and better well-being of the people of Edo State in particular and Nigerians in general," he said.

Also speaking, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Engr. Prof. Emmanuel Aluyor emphasised that one of the core foundations of the Edo State University Teaching Hospital is to promote a culture of collaboration and mutual learning as a  special opportunity to share expertise and gain insight from the experiences of others while also getting inspiration from innovative research and accomplishments that would be shared within the academic community, particularly Edo State University students.

Aluyor added that the free medical services are part of the hospital's  Corporate Social Responsibility for the communities of Auchi, Iyamho and Ivioghe in Etsako West and East respectively.

He, therefore, vowed to ensure that the university management tries its best to position the hospital at a globally competitive level. 

“The three days of free medical care services is in line with the hospital’s Corporate Social Responsibility for the communities of Auchi, Iyamho and Ivioghe in Etsako West and East respectively.

“I can assure you that the university’s management will do everything humanly possible to ensure that the hospital was positioned to a level where it would be globally competitive,” the VC added.

Shaibu’s unveiling of the groundbreaking for the construction of the paediatric unit, accident and emergency wards including an additional theatre within the teaching hospital premises was the highlight of the event.
