Commendations pour in for hospital’s excellent service delivery







Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital in Benin City, Edo State, has stated that apart from its primary areas of specialization, which include geriatric, forensic, community, UNODC accredited addiction treatment, and training in drugs and alcohol, child and adolescent psychiatry, it is also currently offering top quality general medical services, including minor surgeries and maternity/obstetric services.

The chief medical director/chief executive officer of the hospital, Dr. Imafidon Osama Agbonile, disclosed this to newsmen in a press statement and interview, adding that they have continued to provide excellent services in Psychiatry using modern equipment and medical technology.

He said as part of its operation, the hospital management has commenced the construction of two gigantic story buildings at both sites of the hospital- Uselu and Idunmwunowina community in Benin-city.

According to him, “The reason for the expansion of its services stems from management sheer vision to cater for the other illnesses of patients and also to serve as healthcare for the people in Idunmwunowina community and its environs since there are no visible government healthcare centers in the area.

“This is to help add significant value to human lives by providing a more comprehensive approach to healthcare. This has been helping patients receive treatment for both physical and mental health issues in one place. Then, of course, It has also helped to reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues by integrating them into general medical care. We are currently building two full-fledged Medical Centres at Uselu and the Permanent site of the hospital at Idunmwunowina.”

On how the facility is contributing to the general development of the health sector in Nigeria, Agbonile noted that the hospital has made huge contributions to the health sector in Nigeria, including the provision of quality healthcare services and training programs for healthcare professionals and students.
