Healthcare: Kwara State Government acquires New Dialysis Machines

The Kwara State Government on Tuesday announced that they have purchased two brand new 2021 dialysis machine for the state’s premier General Hospital, aimed to offer more efficient services and attend to patients with special needs. 

This was made known in a statement signed by Halima Zulu-Gambari, the Press Secretary of the State’s Hospital Management Board. She quoted the Director General of the Board that the purchase will ease the congestion on the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital.

“His Excellency Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq saw the need to meet the state’s dialysis services through the procurement of additional two brand new 2021 model Dialysis machine.The State’s dialysis services was formerly running on two machines leading to longer waiting time or referral to other centers such as the UITH that is equally operating on 2 or 3 dialysis machines,” he said.

“When the need to carry out dialysis on infected patients arises, we usually referred such patients to other centres because of lack of capacity of having a dedicated machine for that. With these additional two machines, we can now carry out dialysis on both infected and non-infected patients.

“Equally, with these additional capacities, the centre can now be running 24-hour services allowing for a 24-hour cover to meet the high-patient demand for our services. This is indeed yet another dream come true for the State through the Administration of His Excellency Governor Abdulrazaq Abdulrahman.”

She stated further that the acquisition is coming at the heels of the recently completed Intensive Care Unit at the General Hospital,Ilorin – One that she described as the largest in North Central Nigeria.
