The former Deputy-Governor of Osun State, Sen. Iyiola Omisore has canvassed that wealthy, philanthropist and good spirited peoples in the society should partner with hospitals to provide the needful services to the populace.
He said this is necessary because the existing infrastructures put in place in the 70’s when the country’s population was less than 50 million are those still in use now that our population is over 180 million.
Omisore stated this at Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex, Ile-Ife while presenting gifts to in-patients and settling outstanding debts of detained patients some who had been certified okay since April, May 2016 but cannot pay so as to go home.
Sen. Omisore who arrived the Teaching Hospitals at 7:00 am on new year day, was received by the Chief Medical Director of the Hospitals, Prof. Victor Adetiloye and others top management staff.
He visited all the wards that have patients and speaks words of hope to them. He was particularly touched by a patient whose left leg was amputated and his right leg seriously injured based on the accident he had with a trailer whose brake had failed and rammed into his car on Akure-Ife Road.
The former chairman Senate committee on appropriation implored spirited peoples to partner with the Hospitals on Public Private Partnership (PPP) in order for them to keep delivering on their services.
Appreciating Dr. Omisore for his gesture by paying outstanding bills of detained patients and rejoicing with those hospitalized on the first day of the year, Prof. Victor Adetiloye, Chief Medical Director, OAUTHC, Ile-Ife, said more of Sen. Omisore’s caliber is needed in the society to help the underprivileged.
For instance, many of the detained patients have been certified okay since April, May last year but don’t have money to pay. Many are waiting for today because they know Sen. Omisore will be here to pay their outstanding bills.
Adetiloye said, “this Hospitals is international because of major feat we are recording here.We have successfully performed fourteen open heart surgery( first of its kind in the country). But the Hospitals needs new building that will makes it look attractive”.
He thanked Sen. Omisore for the assistance rendered to the Hospitals during his tenure as Senator of the Federal Republic where many buildings facilities dotted the Hospitals.
