THE Nigeria’s health ministry has committed to several health centres to address the issues related to availability of quality medical care.
The Cardio care Specialty Hospital, Abuja is a quintessential medical facility in the heart of Abuja with a commitment to the development of the healthcare sector in Nigeria.
Her dedication to the stemming of losses to medical tourism and improving accessibility of tertiary healthcare services in Northern Nigeria have contributed hugely to the availability of local alternatives, with the launch of the ultra-modern Cath lab centre in Abuja, one of a very few substitutes to open heart surgeries in the entire Northern Nigeria.
Cardio care Specialty hospital founded four years ago is one of the stand-alone specialty hospitals of the Limi Hospital Group (founded in 1982) and has a focus on Cardiovascular and internal medicine with an aim to provide medical solutions, which meet global standards with local considerations that ensure not just availability but affordability
According to Dr IsekoIseko, Group Medical Director of the Limi Hospitals, “the Cardiocare Hospital has successfully carried out over 70 minimally invasive interventional procedures between set up in February and the official launch in November 2020”.
This lends credence to the fact that no one necessarily needs to make a trip out of the country to access highly specialized healthcare.
