Receiving the equipment, which include two Electrical Simulators, two Trolleys, two Stabilizers and two units of UPS, the Medical Director/CEO of the hospital, Dr. Godwin Akhabhoa, expressed gratitude to the Club for the donation and pledged that the equipment will be put to good use.
Dr. Akhabhoa used the occasion to inform the Rotarians of the commitment of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration to infrastructural renewal of the State’s medical facilities as expressed through the ongoing renovation of the hospital, adding that the donation is timely and in the right direction.
The President of the Club, Rotarian David Taiwo, while presenting the items, said that it is part of their yearly contribution to the healthcare delivery of the State in the past eight years and further pledged the Club’s commitment to continue the gesture.
Also speaking at the event, the District Governor, Rotary International District 9110, Rotarian Bola Oyebade, who was represented by Assistant Governor, Jerry Aghiesi, said that the Club will not relent in rendering medical support to the hospital, adding that the donated equipment will go a long way to positively impact on the case management of patients.
A past District Governor, Asiwaju Michael Olawale-Cole, reiterated the commitment of the Club to continue with the support to the hospital and encouraged the present and future leadership to always have projects for the hospital, noting that the government alone cannot provide all that is needed to equip the hospital.
The Director of Physiotherapy of the hospital, Mr. Nduka Egwuelu, who was visibly elated with the donation, said that the Department now has greater capacity to attend to more cases.
The programme was also attended by the Head of Administration and Human Resources, Mrs. Oyindamola Ola-Dawodu and other staffers.
