Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ab­dul­la­teef Aliyu, Ilorin

The Univer­sity of Ilorin Teach­ing Hospi­tal (UITH) is to com­mence open heart surgery in Au­gust this year.

Chief Med­i­cal Di­rec­tor of the hospi­tal, Prof Ab­dul­wa­heed Olat­inwo, dis­closed this at the meet­ing of the staff union of the hospi­tal.

The CMD stated that there were great trans­for­ma­tions in the hospi­tal as it has recorded suc­cess in re­nal trans­plant and test tube ba­bies. He noted that four years ago, the hospi­tal was faced with se­ries of chal­lenges but re­it­er­ated the re­solve of the in­sti­tu­tion on work­ing in tan­dem with the trans­for­ma­tion agenda of the federal govern­ment in qual­ity health de­liv­ery.

Olat­inwo charged all health care providers to have at­ti­tu­di­nal ori­en­ta­tion and stressed the need for ef­fec­tive ser­vice de­liv­ery.

“The union should en­sure that it fol­lows the ethics and rules; union­ism does not sup­port lazi­ness and staff must in­cul­cate the habit of prompt­ness in their du­ties.

There must be at­ti­tu­di­nal ori­en­ta­tion, as govern­ment work must never be taken with lev­ity, it is im­por­tant to have a mind­set to col­lec­tively work hard,” he said.
