FG begins construction of $650m Abuja Medical City
« on: August 28, 2014, 01:55:27 PM »

Minister of Health, Prof Onyebuchi Chukwu, on Wednesday inaugurated two committees to midwife the construction of a 1,687-bed hospital, valued at $650m in the Federal Capital Territory to make quality medical care available to all categories of Nigerians.

The minister said the facility tagged the Abuja Medical City Project, which is expected to be completed between 24 and 36 months, would be implemented through a Public Private Partnership arrangement.

He said the Federal Ministry of Health conceived the project as part of the President Goodluck Jonathan?s transformation agenda aimed at providing a ?one-stop platform for Local and Diaspora Health Professionals to provide critical high quality specialists services to Nigerians?

?It is the responsibility of government to provide the necessary infrastructure for efficient and effective health care delivery to the population through both public and private sector initiatives,? the minister said.

He urged the investors to take advantage of the favourable government service level agreements to lease specialists clinics, outpatient clinics, ambulatory and emergency case, diagnostic centres and hospital spaces.

?It is expected that the establishment of this world class medical city will not only satisfy the yearnings of Nigerians for such services but also enhance that our GDP through inward flow of medical tourism to Nigeria?s advantage,? Chukwu promised.
