The renowned Islamic Scholar and Philanthropist, Fadilat Sheikh (Imam) Hamzat Yusuf Ariyibi has commissioned a state-of-the-art hospital at the heart of Ilorin City, Aiyegbami Area, Ilorin, Kwara State.
The centre, named ‘HAMFAT Clinic and Maternity’ will boost health infrastructure not only in the Aiyegbami-Dada-Alagbado community but also in the entire state, the Ubandoma of Ilorin, Dr. Abdulqadir Oba Solagberu said while inaugurating the project, in the company of top government functionalities, royal fathers and clerics, on Wednesday, 7th June, 2023.
In a statement according to the Supervising Doctor of the Hospital, Dr. Olatunji Abdulmumeen, “the facility would address the majority of the health care needs of people throughout their lifetime. This means, a person may live and die worldwide ever needing the services of an Obstetrician, Dermatologist, or Plastic Surgeon.
But hardly will you gather a sample of the population and not find people with illness such as malaria fever, diabetes, asthma, typhoid, peptic ulcer disease, back pain, hypertension among similar diseases. As such, a facility like this must be made available and affordable, and put close enough to the people so that they need not travel nor move far to access healthcare services”, he added.
The facility has Out-Patient Department, Labor Room, In-Patient Wards, Neonatal Intensive Care, Diagnostic Center and Pharmacy Center. Some of the equipment in the hospital are: anesthesia machine, foetal monitor, Pulse Oximeter, suction machine, Ultrasound scan machine amongst others.
