LUTH cancer centre begins operations May 1



CHRIS Bode, Chief Medical Director (CMD) of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), has disclosed the NSIA-LUTH Cancer Centre, commissioned recently by President Muhammadu Buhari, will open its doors to patients on May 1.
He also revealed that the multi-billion facility, described as the best cancer centre in West Africa, when fully operational, will handle more than 300 patients per day.
The centre was established as a joint-venture partnership between the NSIA and LUTH, to address the lack of adequate and comprehensive cancer treatment and management in the country.  Currently, the ultra-modern equipment are undergoing necessary calibrations and fine-tuning to comply with international standards before going to operation.
One of the largest single private-sector investments in the public healthcare sector, the centre is a sprawling edifice covering over 1,500 square metres, with two of its three linear accelerators already installed.
