Orile-Agege General Hospital gets equipment boost from Livestock Feeds

Livestock Feeds Plc has donated children’s equipment and hand instrument to Orile-Agege General Hospital (OAGH) as part of continuing efforts to support healthy living and the realization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The equipment and instrument were donated to not less than six departments of the hospital’s paediatric dentistry and paediatric outpatient clinics. OAGH is a community-based hospital that serves one of the largest segments in Lagos State.

Adegboyega Adedeji, managing director, Livestock Feeds plc, said the company was committed to supporting the country in attaining the SDG goals in healthcare and quality living among others.

He said the donation was to support training and capacity-building among healthcare workers as well as provide them with equipment and instrument that enable them to efficiently discharge their responsibilities.

He pointed out that with support such as the Livestock Feeds’ CSR, there would be solutions to some of the country’s healthcare challenges, such as infant morbidity and mortality; thus, leading to improved quality of life generally.

Adedeji said CSR should be designed to bridge gaps in socio-economic needs by the conscientious and deliberate movement of surplus resources to needed areas, as the equipment and instrument donation was another major corporate social responsibility (CSR) a commitment from Livestock Feeds.

‘Sola Pitan, chief medical director, Orile-Agege General Hospital (OAGH), who conducted the Livestock Feeds team on a facility tour of the hospital, said the hospital has seen several remarkable improvements in recent years, which has improved the quality of healthcare delivery.

According to him, over the past two years, several critical areas have been improved, which enabled the hospital to handle the large number of patients patronising the hospital.

He, however, sought assistance in other areas such as the accident and emergency unit and theatre that needed to be upgraded in order to further strengthen healthcare operations at OAGH.
