Facility Inspection Holds On Renovated Ayinke House

The Lagos State Government is fast-tracking activities towards the commissioning of the newly renovated Ayinke House which is designed to cater for the new mother and child.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Works, Engr. Jimi Hotonou, laid emphasis on the sophistication of the new edifice with state-of-art modern equipment: “Ayinke House is set to deliver a world-class standard in care of Mothers, and new born babies. A facility that has 30 incubators with automatic oxygen-delivery capacity, neonatal life support , five operating theartres, oxygen plants etc. These will surely measure up to international standard; We should also note that the hospital has been upgraded from an 80-bed hospital to a 170-bed facility".

Dr. Oduwole Oluseye, representative of the Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris, noted, "efforts are geared towards ensuring that all outstanding issues towards a successful commissioning are being addressed.

He asserted that the Lagos State government has ensured that Ayinke House would become fully operational without shortage of medical personnel. Doctors and other Staff had earlier been employed, and incorporated into the operations of the foremost tertiary medical institution which we all know as LASUTH.

The Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Adetokunbo O. Fabamwo said that even the old Ayinke house which was donated by Dr. Mobolaji Bank-Anthony was a state-of-the-art hospital at the time it was donated. Speaking further, he said, “now we have a new Ayinke House that meets the international standard of this time. It boasts of high level technology that is befitting of a tertiary institution".

During the inspection, the Specialist Bio-Medical Consultant to the Ayinke House project, Dr. Sylvester Odigie, who took the entourage round the facility, highlighted that structural maintenance would not pose any challenge as “it is supported by the backbone received from the laboratory of the manufacturers... Government has a policy in place to sustain and manage the equipment,” he assured.
