Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, has described the Modular Healthcare Facility (MHF), recently launched by Alpha Mead Healthcare Management Services (AMHS), as an exciting innovation that will boost access to healthcare in Nigeria.
Abayomi said this yesterday, during an inspection and walkthrough of the MHF at the Gbagada General Hospital. The commissioner said: “It is innovative and has a robust array of facilities within it and can be used in specific locations. I am happy to see it’s an indigenous product and has all the required technical backdrops. It is also energy-conscious and mobile.”
The commissioner also expressed government’s willingness to collaborate with AMHS to deploy the facility, noting that the MHF will come handy in interim and stop-gap situations where the government has not erected physical structures yet.
Earlier, the Group Managing Director, Alpha Mead Group, the parent company of AMHS, Femi Akintunde, while briefing the commissioner before the walkthrough of the facility, said that Alpha Mead was inspired by the need to take quality healthcare facilities to all Nigerians and reduce the construction timeline of a healthcare facility to less than 30 days, saving the time lost to design, construction, equipment installation and commissioning of regular brick and mortar healthcare facilities.
On his part, Managing Director of AMHS, Kunle Omidiora, said the product would bridge the widening gap in access to quality healthcare in Nigeria.Follow us on social media
