Theophilus Danjuma has formally inaugurated the Goodwill Medical Centre (GMC) in Enugu State.
The cutting-edge medical center, which is entirely funded by Danjuma’s philanthropic organization, the TY Danjuma Foundation, is poised to make tremendous achievements in delivering accessible healthcare services to the less fortunate.
The 84-year-old businessman, politician, and former army general revealed the initiative in March 2022, emphasizing its major focus on supplying low-cost, high-efficiency medical services—his commitment to community welfare has been a persistent theme throughout his endeavors.
The GMC, which is staffed by seven consultant experts and professors, is a beacon of hope for destitute patients, striving to provide low-cost treatments for the economically disadvantaged while retaining conventional medical costs for the more affluent.
The services provided include maternal and child health, general primary healthcare, laboratory, eye health, communicable disease prevention and treatment, general surgical, and accident and emergency services, demonstrating a holistic approach to addressing various healthcare needs within the community.
Danjuma, the founder of South Atlantic Petroleum, a significant oil exploration company, has continually engaged in humanitarian endeavors—aside from his vast commercial interests, he is well-known for his dedication to community development.
Nearly two weeks ago, donated a $1.36 million donation to the University of Ibadan’s College of Medicine (CoMUI), setting a new record for philanthropy at the university. The decision was made in response to a request from the CoMUI; the $1.36 million donation will be used to build Block D within the student accommodation.
Danjuma, the largest stakeholder of the publicly traded Industrial and Medical Gases Nigeria Plc, presented a 500-person female hostel to the University of Benin in April. The female hostel demonstrates his commitment to education and societal welfare.
