Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has congratulated the management of the Duchess International Hospital on its first anniversary.

In his congratulatory message on Thursday, November 3, 2022, Prof Osinbajo affirmed that Duchess Hospital “has proved to be world-class, both in the quality of its medical personnel and management and is living up to its mission.”

According to the VP in a recorded message “it’s already a year since we were there to commission the Duchess International Hospital. I didn’t know I would actually end up being a patient at the duchess a few months later to test the accuracy of my rather generous praise of the hospital. So, be careful when you praise a hospital.”

Continuing, Prof Osinbajo said “not only did I undergo an orthopaedic surgery in one of the state-of-the-art theatres there, but I spent a whole week on admission, post-surgery, in perhaps one of the most comfortable hospital accommodations anywhere in the world.

“So, I am possibly the best person to confirm that the Duchess Hospital has proved to be world-class, both in the quality of its medical personnel and its management and that it is living up to its mission.

“I like the way they put it (mission) – to reverse medical tourism by delivering the highest standards of care, using the most advanced technology and treatments to give the fastest, most convenient access to the best medical expertise available anywhere in the world.”

It would be recalled that several months after inaugurating the hospital in Lagos, the VP returned to the same facility to undergo a successful surgery on his right femur.
