Top 7 Best Private And Government Hospitals in Nigeria

You will definitely agree with me that the Nigeria health sector has been seriously dilapidated and this has really debilitated the well-being of average Nigeria.

Though our government are really trying to mitigate this national eyesore, through the infrastructural development in the health sector, both at state and federal level.

However, if you visit the hospital on a daily basis, you would notice the crowd of patients, trooping in with one or more health issues. Some are indoor nursing their illness due to probably poverty because it is a major concern in this context.

The bottom line is the health sector are being recuperated but large number of Nigerians are sick, why?

This is because the pathogens, disease causing organisms, are still lingering joyously in our environment; our environment is squalid, unkempt but the health centers are upgraded. It is a one sided development and to eradicate diseases, it requires a two-sided development- the health sector and the environment. This is because people live in the environment and not the health centers.

Nigeria is one of the countries with the most sophisticated hospitals of international standard, this is laudable effort by our government to ensure we are all safe and free from any disease infection.

There are primary health centers to cater for the health needs of small hamlets or town and also the general hospital; where the primary health centers refer to in case of any critical condition. The general hospital is a specialized hospital with modern health facilities to save life and restore hope.

Not all cases are referred to the general hospital, the primary health centers are designated to attend to casual or less important health issues. The function of the general hospital is to tackle critical health issues that can claim the life of the victim. So often times, the general hospitals are more equipped and sophisticated than the primary health centers; the primary health centers on the other hand are more than the general hospital in population. Both health institutions work hand-in-hand to save life of the populace.

The increasing population of Nigeria has warranted increase in the number of health institutions but the inability of the government to provide surplus health institution has necessitated the need for private hospitals. Private hospitals are own solely by individuals and have two objectives.

One is common to the government hospital with is providing adequate health facilities to save life and the other is to make profit. This is where most people have issues with the private hospitals as one has to pay through the nose to get adequate medical care. This has restricted the rich to the private hospital limiting the masses to the general hospitals.

However, among all the hospitals in Nigeria; below is the list of top notched hospitals, equipped with modern health facilities to cater for the well-being of the citizens at large:
