Ogun To Restructure Hospitals For Better Performance

Ogun State Government says it will focus more on the
development of facilities and human resources at the State hospitals in order
to ensure conformity with the World Health Organization Standard.

The Commissioner for Health, Dr.
Babatunde Ipaye who stated this during his facility assessment tour to some
State hospitals in Abeokuta said restructuring would not only ensure efficiency
in service delivery, but create more enabling environment.
Dr. Ipaye explained that due to the present economic
situation in the Country, about 69 percent of health care funding comes from
public donation, explaining that there was need for efficiency in the
management of resources within the health sector where Internally Generated
Revenue would be used for the development and upgrading of some facilities.
