The Lagos State Government intends to build a N49billion medical park in partnership with the private sector.
The project has been awarded to MEDIPARK International Limited Consortium, comprising MEDIPARK International Limited; Cleveland Clinics, Ohio USA; St. Barnabas Healthcare System, New Jersey; and American Hospital Management Company, Washington DC.
Commissioner for Health, Jide Idris, who briefed reporters after the weekly State Executive Council Meeting, said the project is in line with Governor Akinwunmi Ambode’s commitment to improving healthcare experience, promoting medical tourism and ensuring excellent healthcare services.
He said the medical park would be sited at the former state School of Nursing site on Awolowo Road Ikoyi, which spans over two hectares expanse of land.
The project is projected to be completed in 20 months.
