The Kwara State Hospital Management Bureau has said the ongoing refurbishment and quality of equipment now available at the dental clinic and eye care centres at the General Hospital Ilorin have made the facilities the best in the entire northern region after the National Eye Centre in Kaduna.
Director General of the Bureau, Sa'ad Oladimeji Aluko, stated this in Ilorin on Monday while conducting journalists and some of their staff round the facilities.
He said aside putting in place a beautiful edifice, the government has also equipped the dental clinic and the eye centre with ultra-modern machines that are of highest quality.
"This is the dental clinic for Kwara State General Hospital Ilorin, which is now the biggest dental centre in Kwara State after a comprehensive refurbishment," he said.
"This refurbished dental clinic is meant to deliver quality healthcare to Kwarans.
"What is also critical, apart from erecting a befitting building at this centre, are the equipment that have been put in place.
"So, we now have ultra-modern equipment that are of the highest quality in the country.
"The standard that can compete with any private or public dental institution in the country.
"The eye centre is another big project that His Excellency embarked upon.
"Before now, the biggest eye centre that we had was at Sobi Specialist hospital.
The government had to relocate it to GHI because of the COVID-19 treatment and other technical issues.
"We now have a mega eye centre in GHI (General Hospital Ilorin) here with many modern equipment that have been procured.
"This is not the question of whether we have done this. It is on the ground and anyone can see them.
"We have also taken the delivery of additional dialysis machines that were procured recently. They are two brand new 2022 models.
"You know, it is the top of the range, and that has increased the number of patients coming in.”
