TO prevent misdiagnosis, reduce morbidity and mortality as well as provide world class treatment options locally, Cedarcrest Hospitals, a foremost private multi-specialty hospital group, is providing free medical screening, consultations and drugs to Nigerian citizens at her Lagos Hospital. This is to be accompanied with the free distribution of Insecticide treated bednets.
Medical Director, Dr. Felix Ogedegbe, told journalists that the exercise is scheduled to hold at their Victoria Island Hospital Wednesday December 6 through Friday December 8, 2017 between the hours of 10am – 4pm daily. It is expected to offer free healthcare services to hundreds of Nigerans in orthopaedic surgery, eye care, internal medicine, general practice, among others.
He said through specialised medical services offered; Cedarcrest Hospitals has played a critical role in helping to conserve our nation’s foreign exchange. “Nigerians no longer need to go abroad to get specialist care as the hospital has successfully carried out complex surgical procedures hitherto thought of as being only possible abroad.”
According to Ogedegbe, the best gift a nation can give her people is access to an effective and efficient healthcare system not hindered by the citizens’ ability to pay.
The Lagos Cedarcrest Hospitals Manager, Dr. Ademolu Owoyele, said that Cedarcrest Lagos is poised to give back to the people by opening its doors to Nigerians every quarter as part of its corporate social responsibility, thereby affording Nigerians access to services.
