Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River State has flagged off the construction of a 105-bed Calabar Specialist Hospital which is billed for commissioning in March 2015.

Located within Summit Hills, Imoke disclosed it is the realization of the state’s dream to provide first-class, world standard health care to Cross Riverians right across the state in partnership with UCL Health Care Services to achieve its drive, passion and commitment to the facility.

According to Imoke, “we are acutely aware of the immense importance of this project, which will not only transform the medical landscaped of the state but will also ultimately enlarge the profile of healthcare delivery in the region and country at large. The ultimate aim is to make Calabar synonymous with the best quality healthcare available in the country, on par with anything which can be attained in any other part of the world at a substantially reduced cost”.

The governor explained that the health care sector in the country has been much maligned over the years and is plagued with series of challenges related to professional competencies in infrastructural, operational and managerial capacities.

He stated that as an additional implication to the dearth of health Care services, there is a vast increase in the importation of health care services not only in Europe, but surprising also from countries such as India, The UAE, South Africa and Egypt, adding that the problem is further compounded by the fact that even those who can afford to pay for healthcare cannot get the value for money that they desire.

Imoke said, “Upon completion, the Calabar Specialist Hospital will offer a comprehensive package of secondary, gynecology, obstetrics, paediatrics, internal medicine, general surgery, orthopedics laboratory services, basic neology and basic cardiology with plans to extend to oncology in the near future”.

“In addition to resident specialization, the hospital is expected to offer health care through specialist missions in dermatology, urology, and eye surgery as well as advanced dental surgery. There will also be gatekeeper clinic offering primary health care services and also to serve as a referral mechanism for the specialist hospital”.

The cost of the hospital is N6.4 billion with the state government’s capital contribution set at N3.2 billion while the balance of the financial requirement will be sourced by the concessionaire, UCL HealthCare Services Limited, as its equity contribution to the project in the true spirit of Public Private Partnership (PPP).

Mr. Mark Bush, CEO Cure Hospital Management Service on behalf of the concessionaire, thanked the state government for giving them the opportunity in partnering to execute the project which the described as the best quality hospital in the region.

Bush assured that very soon, a lot of physical changes would take place within the site while the hospital will develop and provide the best medical procedure through PPP to realize the vision of the state government, emphasizing that it will be completed and commissioned on scheduled.

    Still in Calabar with the Teaching Hospital and fairly well-equipped general hospital there?? What happens if a patient is referred from say, Obanliku with a life-threatening head injury or some other emergency, to travel along the largely bad and lengthy road to the specialist hospital??? This does not amountto any real development for Cross River people 🙁
