The hospital’s Medical Director, Dr Ayodapo Soyinka, made this known, according to a statement on Thursday, during the fifth annual stakeholders’ meeting held at the premises of the hospital.

He said, “The hospital organises stakeholders’ meetings annually to evaluate the performance of health workers in terms of quality service delivery by getting feedback from members of the public about the services rendered and getting to know how the hospital can improve.

“The hospital plans to commence electronic medical records and an e-card system and commission some other projects that will improve the health care of the residents as these would demonstrate the government’s commitment to quality health care delivery.”

Also speaking at the event, the Director of Clinical Service and Training, Dr Jane Bakare, urged the public to build more trust in government facilities.

“We are always glad to receive feedback from our clients and I also want to assure the public that the general hospitals in the state have been well-equipped, developed, and better positioned to meet the health needs of the populace,” she said.
