As part of efforts geared towards improving Maternal and Child Health indices in Lagos State, the State Government has completed the construction and equipping of a four-floor 110-bed Maternal and Child Centre (MCC) located inside the General Hospital, Badagry.
The MCC design was mooted as a Four (4) Storey edifice with 110 bed complement. The facility was specially designed to provide integrated healthcare services for women of child bearing age and children.
This MCC, like others before it, is uniquely designed to suit the pre-conceptual integrated health services including:
👉🏽Laboratory Services/Blood bank
👉🏽Family Planning, and
Badagry Maternal and Child Centre has been provided with modern equipment and furnitures to enhance the achievement of better maternal and child health indices in Badagry Local Government Areas and adjoining environs.
The completion of this critical health infrastructure has no doubt demonstrated the commitment of Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu ‘s administration towards addressing the twin issue of maternal and child deaths in Lagos.
With a commitment to ensure that no woman or child die from normal life enhancing process of procreation, Sanwo-Olu is scheduled to commission this critical health infrastructure on Friday 11th Dec, 2020 at Badagry General Hospital.
