Reddington unveils new surgery, critical care centre
Reddington Hospital, Victoria Island, Lagos has unveiled a new and upgraded surgery and critical care facility. The facility known as Davidson Specialist Surgery and Critical Care Centre was formally opened by the British Deputy High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ms. Laure Beaufils.
The Centre is named after Dr. Neil Davidson, an Oxford trained consultant physician and the founding medical director of the Reddington Hospital.
According to the management, the facility was established to fill a need for high-quality surgery that is back up by high-level critical care provision due to absence of these services in the country.
Speaking at the event, Group Medical Director and Chief of Surgery of the hospital, Dr. Olutunde Lalude said what is new in the approach of the Centre is the tight integration and teamwork between surgery, anaesthesia and critical care, which is crucial for optimal results following major surgery and treatment for major life-threatening conditions.
Similarly, the hospital’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Adeyemi Onabowale said: “The theatre has been upgraded with an array of modern surgical suite technology and new state-of-the-art critical care equipment.
