By Ezeike Obele, Nnewi
The management of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital (NAUTH) Nnewi, in Anambra state, has assured that all the clinic (departments) of the health institution would move to the permanent site of the hospital before the end of 2020.
The Chief Medical Director of the institution, Prof. Anthony Igwegbe, who made the disclosure to Orient Weekend in his office in Nnewi, last Wednesday, also assured that only departments that would be left at the temporary site are emergencies, surgeries and admissions.
Igwegbe, who is serving out his eighth-year tenure said: “I have done my best with the limited resources before me, and I have been able to work on the permanent site fully and steadily, and that is why we were able to get to this stage.
“Within these eight years, we have done a lot. I will say that my best legacy is decent environment that is very conducive for both research and clinical services.
“Our schools are doing well and we have been encouraging and sponsoring our resident doctors and they are doing very well in their examinations. We are happy to say that even people from bigger institutions come to NAUTH to do some postings and that means that we are quite recognised for setting the pace in some areas.”
