FG set to improve the State House Medical Centre Abuja


The Presidency says the State House Medical Centre, will be repositioned to offer qualitative and efficient services.

Permanent Secretary, State House, Mr. Jalal Arabi, disclosed this on Wednesday.

According to a statement by Attah Esa of the Media department in the State House, the Permanent Secretary was reacting to media report on the state of the Medical Centre which currently offers free medical services to patients.

The Permanent Secretary said the management will among other things seek the commercialization of the Centre to boost its revenue and augment the appropriation it receives from the government in the quest for better service.

Arabi said the proposed reforms will ensure that those eligible to use the Centre are NHIS compliant with their Health Maintenance Organisations (HMOs) or primary health providers domiciled in the clinic.

The Permanent Secretary also dismissed allegations of misappropriation and withholding of funds meant for medical supplies in the Centre.
