FG Approves Re-Opening Of Dr. Adadevoh’s Hospital


The Federal Government has approved the re-opening of the First Consultant Medical Centre in Obalende, where late Dr. Stella Adadevoh worked and Liberian-American, Patrick Sawyer died.

The hospital was shut after Sawyer arrived Nigeria with Ebola and was treated there. He also died in the hospital on July 25.
The FG has reportedly issued a Certification of Decontamination to the hospital and given them permission to re-open for business.
The hospital is said to have received a letter each from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris, and has now gotten the all clear after undergoing three rounds of a state-certified decontamination process.
The Lagos state government reportedly issued a statement saying:

 “The Ministry is in receipt of a letter dated August 29, 2014, from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Ebola Emergency Centre, Lagos, informing that your facility has had three rounds of state-certified decontamination process.
“The Ministry acknowledges the role your facility played in alerting the State Government of the index case of the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) and appreciates your altruistic gestures in containing and managing this deadly virus, thus preventing an epidemic.
“We also commiserate with you on your members of staff who died in the line of duty.
“First Consultants has now been cleared to reopen for business. We hope that with this reopening, your facility will continue to maintain its high quality of standards”,
