1 Dr Adedamola Dada, Medical Director, Federal Medical Centre Ebute-Metta, on Friday said the hospital would continue to improve on its services to make it a destination of choice for patients in the country.
3 The Health Facility Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA) gave the award to the hospital on Sept. 15.
Dada said that the award would spur the hospital to do more in rendering quality healthcare services to patients.
4 “The award we received recently is really for our patients whose need is our main duty.
6 “It’s even more exciting that this award is coming from the regulator who conducted this assessment and reached this conclusion without even our knowledge.
7 “There are over a hundred public hospitals in Lagos spanning the local, state and federal governments,” he said.
8 The medical director commended the staff and management of the hospital for their commitment and selfless services to patients.
9 “Kudos to our staff, management board, federal Ministry of Health and the federal government for releasing 100 per cent of all health budgets in the last few years,” he said.
11 It was established exclusively to cater to the health needs of its members of staff and their families.
The hospital was formally handed over to the Federal Ministry of Health on Jan. 31, 2005, as a tertiary healthcare institution and designated as Federal Medical Centre (FMC) Ebute-Metta.
