Abuja teaching hospital to get isolation ward — Minister

By - - [General ]

The federal government will soon build an isolation ward at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Minister of Health, Prof Isaac Adewole, has said.

He stated this yesterday when he visited the conjoined twins recently separated by a team of eight surgeons at the hospital.


He also promised to provide any necessary support that might be required by the hospital so that patients from the area and other parts of the country could access quality service at the facility without travelling far.

The minister commended the team of surgeons led by Dr. Olori Sampson and the management of the hospital for successfully separating the twins whose livers were joined at birth, and for maintaining a well-equipped theatre which provided the enabling environment for the success story.


Adewole thanked the Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, for his cash donation to the family through the Aisha Children Foundation, and also the management of the hospital for writing off their medical bills.

He advised the surgeons and supporting staff to manage the case well until the twins were fit considering the critical nature and potential complications that may arise.

He advised the management of the hospital to publicize their achievements to enable the public to know what services could be accessed within the country, stem medical tourism and encourage healthy competition amongst health facilities.

Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the hospital, Professor Bissallah A. Ekele, appealed for more support for the hospital’s Accident and Emergency Unit and for upgrade of the 350 bed hospital to a 450 bed facility.
