Ikpeazu At The Brand New Multi Specialist Hospital Aba

Yesterday, after inspecting the ongoing works at the new Government House Umuahia, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu was in Aba to see the current state of the brand new Multi Specialist Hospital Aba.

This new hospital which is located inside the premises of the old Aba General Hospital is first of its kind anywhere in Abia State with specific focus on kidney and heart diseases.

This new hospital is Governor Ikpeazu's response to the quest to preserve the wonderful memories of the old Aba General Hospital and it's place in the history of Aba and the hearts of its people.

It will be recalled that the old Aba General Hospital housed the Abia State University Teaching Hospital several years ago. When eventually the Teaching Hospital was moved to her Permanent Site, what was left of the Aba General Hospital became abandoned for 8 straight years until the Ikpeazu administration reopened the hospital in 2018.

However, it became clear that what was left of the General Hospital Aba, especially in terms of physical structures and environment were no longer appropriate to meet the challenges of a modern Healthcare Delivery System.

This was what led to the conceptualization, by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, of the Aba Health Village within that same premises.

The Multi Specialist Hospital, now almost completed, is a fundamental part of this Health Village.

As we speak, work on the main complex is almost ready as final painting is currently on, while all equipment for this new hospital are fully on ground and their installation will commence later this week and should be completed within 10 days. These include several dialysis machines, a 265 Slide CT SCAN Machine and several other high end radiology equipment. This new facility will have 4 modern operating theatres and about 20 VIP patients suites in addition to general areas. While there will be specific focus on some areas of Healthcare, the hospital will offer general medical services to the public.

Governor Okezie Ikpeazu intends to commission this hospital before his exit on the 29th day of May, 2023.

So, from the ashes of the old Aba General Hospital will arise a brand new, State of the Art Multi Specialist Hospital Aba with space for further expansion by incoming administrations in the State.
