As part of the effort towards delivering quality healthcare service to the people of Lagos State and environs, the board and management of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), has signed a Private Public Partnership (PPP) Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Lordus Medical and Surgical Supply Company to ensure uninterrupted gas supply is readily available in the hospital.

The Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo, expressed optimism on the positive results expected from the gas production project, noting, “We have the approval of the board of LASUTH to take this giant step as it will bring succor to the patients who are at the receiving end.”

The Chief Executive Officer, Lordus Medical & Surgical Supply Company, Dr. Ade Tinubu who appreciated the members of the board of the hospital noted that, the partnership with LASUTH has come to stay, as the company plans to ensure sustainability and managed effectively to fulfill the purpose for which it was set up.

“We are grateful to the board for this opportunity to help transform healthcare delivery in LASUTH, we will ensure the process is seamless and effective,” he said.

He said the PPP project should be delivered in January or February 2020.
