    Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals, one of the largest private tertiary healthcare organizations in West Africa has launched a new state-of-the-art medical facility in Victoria Island Lagos. The multi-specialty hospital has a team of world-class healthcare experts, advanced technology-driven medical equipment, including a Catheterization Laboratory (Cath Lab) and a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan.

    The 27-bed facility offers a wide range of primary, secondary, and tertiary healthcare services and is positioned to be the Centre of Excellence for Advanced Cardiology & Cardiac Surgeries. The installation of the Catheterization Laboratory in the new facility makes Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals one of the few medical institutions in Nigeria to have such medical infrastructure in Nigeria.

    The Managing Director of the new Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals, Dr. Abayomi Kuyoro said, “Our vision at Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals is to build a consistently patient-first, world-class, healthcare services provider network catering to the teeming needs of the populace, which is why we have commissioned this new facility”.

    “As a hospital that is known for advanced and innovative technology, the facility includes advanced diagnostic imaging services such as the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), a Digital X-ray which captures clearer and more accurate images, a Catheterization Laboratory, amongst others. With these, we aim to reduce the wave of medical tourism and provide Nigerians with more accessible and quality health care services.”

    The Clinical Head of the Interventional Cardiology Program and Director of Cardiac Catheterization Lab at the new facility, Dr Olurotimi Badero, a US-trained Interventional Cardio-Nephrologist, also commented on the launch of the facility, “With the team of healthcare specialists and functional equipment, the new hospital is well-equipped to improve treatment outcomes especially in Cardiac Care in Nigeria. As a facility operating with international standards, we are confident in improving patient satisfaction and ensuring that all our clients can access the all-round treatment and recuperation”.

    In its efforts to ensure quality healthcare delivery, facilities in the Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals group became the first in Sub-Saharan Africa to receive the Gold Seal of Approval of the Joint Commission International (JCI), a globally recognised accreditation which provides hospitals with the capacity to improve standards of care, staff education and development to core safety standards. The Ikeja & Ikoyi facilities have consistently received the Gold Seal of Approval from the organisation for successive periods, signifying their continuous adherence to international best practices. This achievement serves as a testament to their dedication to deliver safe and efficient patient care.

    Other key services provided at the new hospital include General Surgery, Critical Care & Emergency, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Pediatrics, Orthopedics & Trauma, and Advanced Diagnostics.

    Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals, formerly known as Lagoon Hospitals, was established by Prof. & Prof. Mrs. Elebute in 1986.

    The organization has since expanded to six facilities, thereby becoming one of the largest private tertiary healthcare providers in West Africa. In 2021, Lagoon Hospitals was acquired by Iwosan Investments, a private healthcare investment company dedicated to investing in the Nigerian healthcare market.
