Prof. Akin Abayomi, Lagos State Commissioner for Health, has described the Modular Healthcare Facility (MHF), by Alpha Mead Healthcare Management Services (AMHS), as an exciting innovation that will increase access to healthcare in Nigeria.
He said this yesterday, during an inspection and walkthrough of the MHF at the Gbagada General Hospital. Stating that “It is innovative and has a robust array of facilities within it and can be used in specific locations. Expressing government’s willingness to collaborate with AMHS to deploy the facility, he noted 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.
On his part, Managing Director of AMHS, Kunle Omidiora, said the product would bridge the widening gap in access to quality healthcare in Nigeria.
