CARDIOVASCULAR CARE IN NIGERIA; UNITED HEARTS UPS THE ANTE
Lagos; October 24, 2017: United Heart hospital and clinics, a full service and well equipped cardiovascular centre has opened its doors to the Nigerian public in Victoria Island, Lagos.
The Centre, determined to reverse the trend of medical tourism, is the decision of Dr Nwosu to stem and reduce capital flight associated on medical treatments abroad having spent 33years of postgraduate medical training and cardiology practice in the United States.
Speaking on the decision to leave the comfort of his thriving and comfortable medical practice in a well-structured and organised society, Dr Nwosu stated that ‘Nigeria has serious challenges in many areas but we can make a difference especially in the specialty area of cardiovascular diseases’.
Speaking further, he said, “I have had the benefit of practicing with first class medical equipment, infrastructure and in a conducive environment. The trend of Nigerians going to India, UK, USA, and South Africa is one we are poised to reverse and with significant cost savings for those who will take advantage of what we have brought to their doorsteps”.
The centre which already has become the toast of some of the top Health Management Organisations (HMOs) commenced operations in the second quarter of 2017 and has already received raves from walk in and referred patients.
Speaking at the opening of the facility, the Dr Yemi Ogunbiyi former MD of Daily Times of Nigeria, said “we are pleased to welcome Dr Nwosu and United Hearts into the ever bubbly city of Lagos. Lagos is the commercial heartbeat of Nigeria and there is no better place for a cardiovascular centre of this magnitude and standard to be situated than Lagos.
I am well acquainted with the founder of the centre Dr Nwosu and his years of professional practice and I can vouch for what he has come back home to do – make quality cardiovascular care available and affordable at a fraction of the cost many people go to spend abroad”.
He added that ‘Lagos is proud to have complementary private sector practice to cater to the health challenges of the teeming population on the state as the huge investments of the state government in health centres cannot meet the needs of all Lagosians ’.
United Hearts Hospital and clinics boasts of ECG, cardiac monitor, ambulatory blood pressure monitor, exercise stress test, stress echocardiogram, transthoracic echocardiogram, transeosephagial echocardiogram, interventional cardiology, pacemaker and ICD, X-ray and laboratory services, pharmacy, health education, preventive cardiology and lipid clinic, functional cardiology and wellness as well as cardiology second opinion all in a 15 bed inpatient service.
