Lift Above Poverty Organization (LAPO) is set to inaugurate its ultra-modern Benin Medical Care (BMC) hospital.
James-Wisdom Abhulimen,Public Relations Officer of LAPO said this in a statement issued to newsmen in Benin on Thursday.
“The medical center is no doubt a fulfilment of the age-long dream and mandate of LAPO to improve the health status of Nigerians”.
“The BMC is the latest addition to the LAPO group of vibrant semi-autonomous institutions addressing myriads of socio-economic and health challenges confronting poor and vulnerable people in target communities across the country”,he said.
He said the medical center would address diverse health challenges in Nigeria through cutting edge technology.
He said the hospital is the response of LAPO to the poor indices in the health sector, which has contributed to short life expectancy and health tourism by the elites.
Wilson said the hospital will build partnerships with other health facilities to provide care for the people and will collaborate with LAPO to develop and deploy innovative programmes to reach rural dwellers with quality but affordable health care services.
