FOUNDATION STONE LAYING CEREMONY OF OSUN STATE TEACHING HOSPITAL
Last Thursday (22nd November 2018) at the foundation stone laying ceremony of a 250-bed Teaching Hospital which my family and I bequeathed to Osun State University, Osogbo, Nigeria.
The idea for this hospital was borne out of love for children, mothers and humanity in general and for the advancement of medical education. The event was the fulfilment of my pledge to build a Children’s hospital when I was appointed Chancellor by the Visitor to the University, His Excellency, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.
However, since the University has been given approval to commence its medical school, my husband and I decided to upgrade our donation of the paediatric hospital to a Full-fledged Ultra-Modern Teaching Hospital.
The Facility when completed will consist of a world class:
• Community Health Unit
• Maternity & Neonatal Medicare
• Research and Diagnostic Laboratories
• State of the art operating Theatres
• Cutting edge Diagnostic Imaging, inclusive of C.T Scan
• M.R.I Scanning Facility
• Ultrasound Scanning Facilities
• X-ray and Radiotherapy Suites
• Lecture rooms
• Necropsy and
We must do everything in our capacity to ensure that both children and adults have access to timely and qualitative medical services. It is only a healthy nation that is productive, afterall.
Glory be to GOD.
