About

Westend Hospital was founded on January 4th 1978 by Dr J.E.O. Amadasun, Dr .Med., FA (ORL)., FWACS.,FMC (ORL)., FICS., MNES, Lifetime Member; Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).

The name “Westend” came from the fact that we wanted our hospital to be seen as representing the “western end” of orthodox medicine or rather, the level of medical practice experienced in Western Europe.

Almost 4 decades later Westend Hospital still remains at the forefront of healthcare delivery in Delta State and Nigeria thanks to our approach of continual improvement.

Westend Hospital is the first private hospital to acquire a CT Scan machine in the defunct Bendel State. Over time we have continued in this kiazen tradition by investing in technology and professional capacity with our recent acquisition of a new GE CT Scanner and the setup of a Stroke Unit managed by our own in-house Consultant Neurologist.

Our wards consist of 50 beds with private rooms, executive rooms, male, female and children’s wards, ICU, NICU and High Dependency Care Units. Care for the whole family is provided by our multi-disciplinary team of full time consultants covering Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Paediatrics and Internal Medicine. Other specialties covered include ENT, Cardiology, Urology, Nephrology, Orthopaedic and General Surgery.

We have an average of five General Practitioners in this unit to handle general cases. This is the first point of call and cases that require specialist review are referred to any of the Specialist units.

Westend Hospital is a pacesetter and has been at the forefront of several technological promotions in the field of teleradiology and EMR solutions. Westend Hospital has been outsourcing radiology reporting for almost 2 decades and now we utilize an international award winning Teleradiology provider, Teleradiology Solutions, for interpretation of non-invasive imaging studies, namely CT, ultrasound and digitized Xrays. Also partnering with Insta Health Solutions India to customize an EMR and Hospital Management Software for Nigerian hospitals has brought affordable cutting edge technology to the fingertips of many hospitals in Nigeria.

Westend Hospital has benefited from several capacity building initiatives including a 2 year collaboration with SPDC`s COHSASA accredited I.A. Hospital Ogunu, Warri, for the development of capacity and expertise in Westend Hospital in preparation for our COHSASA accreditation towards which we are working.

There have been a lot of contributors from all over the world to the intellectual capital and innovation at Westend Hospital over the years. One of such contributors is the immediate past Governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, who was our reliable Anaesthesist and Senior Medical Officer.

Having a staff strength of over a hundred, Westend Hospital has won the “Most Valuable Employer Award” by the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund – the Federal Agency concerned with employees` welfare.

Our sister company, Safari Care Pharmaceuticals Ltd, ensures a unique collaboration at providing high quality cost effective medication in a society pervaded by fake and counterfeit drugs.
