    Oyo Govt inaugurates renovated, equipped General Hospital in Tede

    Gov. Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has inaugurated the newly renovated and equipped General Hospital Tede in Atisbo Local Government area, after a long period of neglect.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the General Hospital, Tede, was renovated and equipped by the state government through the State Health Insurance Agency Scheme (OYSHIA) from capitation on its scheme.

    In his remarks, Makinde said healthcare delivery is a major pillar of his administration.

    On the four agenda of his administration, the governor said: “We are collaborating with the security agencies to keep our people safe and secured.

    “We have invested in education, expanding our economy and security.

    The fourth pillar is healthcare.

    ” He promised residents of the area that the”Light up Oyo” would be implemented in Tede, as well as the enrolment of 1,250 people in health insurance from the two communities for the next one year.

    Also, Dr Sola Akande, the Executive Secretary, OYSHIA, said that to achieve universal health coverage, there has to be places to access quality healthcare.

    “What we are doing is in line with the vision of Gov. Seyi Makinde, who has an objective of ensuring that healthcare services are available to every citizen of the state, regardless of social status or location.

    “This General Hospital in Tede is one of the manifestations and what OYSHIA is simply doing is to align with the direction of the government in implementation of qualitative healthcare facilities and equipment,” Akande said.

    The OYSHIA secretary said the General Hospital in Tede, dilapidated for over 15 years and worsened by torrential rainfall of over 10 years, had been brought back to life.

    He commended the healthcare workers, who had continued and persisted in giving care with the horrendous state of the hospital before the overhaul of the facility.

    Akande said training and retraining would be continuous in ensuring that personnel get a hold on the use of the equipment provided for the hospital.

    “The essence of the health insurance with our agency is to have about 2,500 people enrolled in the facility, such that the facility will be receiving N500, 000 monthly from OYSHIA for its sustenance aside what it will get from the government,” he said.

    Also, Fasasi Adeagbo, the Chairman, Atisbo Local Government, commended the governor for bringing development to the state.

    “This hospital was renovated and equipped in line with his vision despite economic hardship in the country.

    “We thank him for what he has done because many people in Oke-Ogun will benefit from the hospital, they won’t have to travel to Ibadan for care,” Adeagbo said.

    According to him, to ensure sustainability of the hospital, the local government will sponsor people’s treatment through the health insurance scheme yearly and also be responsible to support it financially and otherwise.

    Also, Dr Salisu Salawu, the Head of General Hospital, said it was a delight for the general hospital, being the oldest hospital in Oke-Ogun to have received a complete overhaul and state-of-the-art facilities.

    Salawu said: “The condition of the hospital was terrible before and like 12 years ago, the whole roof was blown away by wind, but with the help of community leaders and  philanthropists, they were able to fix some parts.

    “Since the creation of the hospital, it has not received a total renovation like we are  witnessing now and equipping.

    “The whole hospital has been renovated and it has also been stocked with state-of-art equipment in the theatre, laboratory and even wards.

    ” According to him, the hospital has electronic delivery machine, borehole powered supply system, newly installed 20 KVA Diesel Generator, backed with solar power and a newly constructed fence.

    It also has street light to serve as a hub for all the primary healthcare centres in both Atisbo and Saki East Local Governments.

    He said that before the renovation, about 200 to 250 patients were accessing care, but in the last one and half months of its renovation, more 500 patients received care in July only.

    Some of the patients at the hospital, Mrs Mutia Yusuf and Mrs Aminat Oladejo, who delivered sets of twins, appreciated the state government for refurbishing the hospital and equipping it for the good of residents in the area.

    Oyo pensioners to join state Health Insurance Scheme

    The Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP), Oyo State branch, says it is ready to join the state health insurance policy to access quality medical care.

    The pensioners took the decision on  Thursday at a sensitisation programme on the policy for members in Ibadan.

    Addressing journalists after the sensitisation, Dr Olusegun Abatan, the state NUP Secretary, said that pensioners were suffering, following which some had died due to their inability to access simple medical care.

    “There was a year we had about 516 deaths among our members; during that time, we wrote to the government to do something about pensioners in the state.

    “We thought it is right for pensioners to join the state health insurance policy base on its benefit.

    “We have listened to the sensitisation and we have all agreed to join the scheme,” Abatan said.

    He said that the policy would be of greater benefit to members of the union and end years of misery, despondency and anguish.

    The chairman of the union said that the policy would help to elongate the lives of pensioners.

    Earlier, Dr Olushola Akande, the Executive Secretary, Oyo State Health Insurance Agency (OYSHIA), said that the scheme had been on for about four years, but pensioners were not involved.

    According to Akande, the scheme is now being subsidised for pensioners in the state and those earning less than N5,000 per month will enjoy free medical care.

    ”Those earning above N5,000 as pension per month will paid N4,000 per annum instead of N8,000 per annum,” he said.

    The OYSHIA scribe said further that N1,000 would be deducted from their monthly pension for four months to make N4,000 a year.

    According to him, the pensioners will have access to drugs, surgery, different medical tests and all levels of care.

    Rotary Club offers free medical service to 500 patients in 8 Oyo communities

    No fewer than 500 people in eight communities in Ido Local Government Area (LGA) of Oyo State benefited from the free medical outreach organised  by Rotary Club, Ibadan Jericho Metro.The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the outreach, held on Monday at Ladunni village in Ido LGA, had seven other villages as beneficiaries.Mr Oluseye Diyan, President, Rotary Club Ibadan Jericho Metro, said the programme was one of the projects  for the  20222023  rotary year.Diyan stated that the Club, in partnership with  a number of  other sponsors, organised the outreach to cater for the health of people in the rural area.He said 500 community members from eight communities in Batake, Ladunni and  other villages around Ido LGA were beneficiaries.“We have brought them here through the Primary Health  Centre at Ladunni village for the free medical outreach.”He said the essence was  to provide medical facilities for the members of  the communities in very far away from town who didn’t  have any medical facilities around them.“We are here to kick start the project, hoping that the healthcare facility would come alive.The Oyo State Government would send medical personnel to the centre.“Members of the community are being tested for malaria, blood sugar, blood pressure and deworming.About 20 doctors are on ground and other medical personnel, volunteers from University College Hospital and the United United States of America are all available.“This is our own way of doing Rotary business and helping the less privileged, thereby putting a smile on the faces of people in the rural areas,” Diyan said.“We have liaised with the Oyo State Health Insurance Scheme (OYSHIA) to sensitise people to the need for them to have health insurance and we will also pay for the health insurance scheme of a  good number of them to kick-start this process.”One of the partners who organised the outreach, Dr Kemi Sanni, Founder of ConnectDcare Inc.USA, said the foundation started in 2013 in conjunction with other  partners, in collaboration with Ogun, Oyo and Lagos Governments.“From our statistical research, we found out that local areas like this don’t have access to healthcare and even those that are in the city that do have access cannot afford it.“This is just a supplement to help our people because not everyone can afford healthcare.”Sanni stated that it was imperative for people to have regular check ups twice a year and minimum once a year.She said 90 per cent of those examined were hypertensive and wondered how they kept going about with high blood pressure.Also, Dr Sola Akande, Executive Secretary, OYSHIA, stated that partnership with the government was inevitable to enhance quality healthcare delivery.Akande noted that with enrollment into the scheme, there would be funds to sustain the health care facility in the communities.Some beneficiaries of the service, Toyin Oladeji and Taye Adegbite, expressed gratitude to the organisers of the medical programme.NAN reports that other partners for the outreach include Naykash Healthcare, Hope For All Inc, GHL Foundation, Ken and Sara George, Huston, Texas, USA.NewsSourceCredit: NAN
