CLINIC EXPANDS

The University Medical Centre, at its inception, started with three major services namely: out-patient services, environmental health care and minor laboratory tests.

All these services occurred between 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. But with the unparalleled dedication and contribution of the vice chancellor since his assumption of office, the scope of services has been expanded remarkably and as it stands today, the university medical centre now renders seven major services including in-patient care, out-patient care, emergency services, HIV testing and counseling. Other services are adolescent/reproductive health, environmental healthcare and immunization services. Three evolving services are basic laboratory service, radiological service and family planning. The Centre is also poised to render round-the-clock services, with doctors on call.

Members of the university community are advised to avail themselves of these services. It is also delightful to note that students in a few weeks from now will cease to experience limited/restricted health-care from referral centres- FMC Ido-Ekiti and EKSUTH- as a result of financial constraint usually faced when they are referred from the University Medical Centre to any of these teaching hospitals. The university, through the University Medical Centre, is fine-tuning an insurance scheme for students that will enable their parents to pay only 10% of their total hospital bill upon discharge from these referral centres.
