Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital Alumnus Donates New Pediatric Surgical Facility

An alumnus of Olabisi Onabanjo Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Dr Muyiwa Abdul has donated a state-of-the-art pediatric surgical facility to the institution to boost the outcomes of surgeries for children.

The Ogun State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Tomi Coker, while commissioning the project, said the project is a reflection of the Dapo Abiodun’s commitment to upscaling the state-owned tertiary health facility through innovative funding.

Coker said the rapid development of the health sector in the last few years could have been achieved only through sustained collaborations, calling on other well-meaning individuals to join hands with the government to make healthcare more accessible in the State.

“Through innovative funding, we have been fortunate to enjoy sustainable partnerships such as this project facilitated by our donor. What he has done is invest in our children, and invariably our future. This investment means that he has partnered with us in our social development drive.

“No one knows what children that benefit from this facility would become in the future. They could become governors, ministers, or commissioners tomorrow. So, this pediatric building and equipment are in line with our resolve to protect the lives of our children in Remo, other parts of the State, and across Nigeria at large”, she said.

The Commissioner, while appreciating the donor, whose 50th birthday coincided with the project launch, assured that the facility would be judiciously maintained.

The Chief Medical Director, OOUTH, Dr. Oluwabunmi Fatungase, described the facility as the first of its kind in the history of the Institution, saying the entire management staff was excited that the project was donated by one of its “products”.

Reacting, the donor, a United State-based Forensic Psychiatrist, Dr. Abdul, said that the Teaching Hospital contributed to his foundation in the profession, adding that it was an honour for him to give back to the institution.

 

He said that the decision to name the facility after his mother, “Iye Moji”, Madam Grace Modupe Abdul, was a way of appreciating her sacrifices.
