Massey: Update On The Largest Sub-Saharan Children’s Hospital 


(News investigators) Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos has flagged off the construction of Massey Children’s Hospital, a 150-bed specialist hospital for children in Lagos.

Mr Sanwo-Olu said the hospital, one of the achievements of his administration, will be the biggest Children’s Hospital in Sub-Saharan Africa when completed.

The governor said this at the opening and ground-breaking ceremony of the Massey Children’s Hospital on Wednesday.

Mr Sanwo-Olu said the construction of the facility reflects his administration’s unwavering determination to bridge all gaps in the health sector.

“As a responsive government, we identified the inadequacy of present Massey Street Children’s Hospital to continue to meet the needs of a megacity with a population of 22 million people.

“As a result of the steady and increasing number of patients who daily throng the hospital to access medical services, the capacity has been overstretched and must be urgently upgraded to provide quality service to patients,” he said.
