The breast and gynecological centre is the first of its kind in Lagos Nigeria and a state of the art medical centre dedicated to womens health, borne out of a mission to provide advanced, high quality, restorative, wellness, aesthetic care to women at all stages of life.

Charles Iwuala, medical director, breast and gynecology centre said a paradigm shift is taking place in womens health in Nigeria.

With our philosophy of providing compassionate and respectful care, the breast and gynae centre will journey with our women through every stage of life from puberty through menopause and the golden years, as we strive to give them the best comprehensive healthcare available, said Iwuala

Adeyemi Onabowale the CEO of Reddington Hospital said, What other value can we add to Nigeria healthcare and I realized that the women healthcare in Nigeria is not addressed the way it is internationally accepted.

The idea is to offer the most advanced comprehensive and personalised care available, and then put everything under one roof. This is what is lacking in the country, even though there are hospitals focusing on women, ours will focus on everything. There is a need to have facilities like that in this country and we are partnering with GE healthcare to provide us with facilities and technology that are not available in country.

Nigeria expertise is limited in terms of exposure, what is the right thing to do without technology, amazing technology matches with outstanding expertise. said Onabowale

Oludolapo Osinbajo the wife of Nigerias vice president, while congratulating the Reddington hospital group for the achievement said the centre established in Nigeria will help to address the several health challenges peculiar to Nigerian women, and aid the reduction of medical tourism in the country,

It is possible also that service will ensure that the next medical tourism, Nigeria doctors treating Nigerians in Nigeria.
