In this era where Nigeria loses billions of dollars to medical tourism yearly, the Ondo state government has set out to reverse this trend. With the establishment of the University of the Medical Sciences Teaching Complex (UNIMEDTHC) Ondo, Akure, the state government is determined to reverse the trend of indigenes and residents of the state seeking tertiary health care outside the state and country.
Indeed, the University of Medical Science Teaching Hospital Complex provides quality and affordable clinical and surgical services all at affordable prices.
UNIMEDTHC also runs a Contributory Health Scheme, that caters for the health of all those in the vulnerable group. Under this scheme, all pregnant women, under-five children, the physically and mentally challenged receive care free of charge. In February 2020, the facility hosted a free eye screening where thousands of free eye glasses were distributed to vulnerable residents of the state with eye challenges.
Headed by the Chief Medical Director Dr. Oluwole Ige, UNIMEDTHC boosts of over 750 qualified personnel recruited across board to match the upgrade in the facility. Our professionally trained nurses and doctors are at hand to deliver top-notch services with an excellent world-class level of care to all patients.
The University of Medical Science Teaching Hospital Complex (UNIMEDTHC) Ondo state, was established in 2019 with the aim of reversing the medical tourism trend in the country. UNIMEDTHC was birthed from the amalgamation of existing specialist hospitals in the state to form a multi-complex teaching hospital for the already existing University of Medical Sciences.
Following the amalgamation of the facilities, the multi-complex Teaching Hospital have been reorganized and restructured with several new structures being set up to accommodate a modern and standard teaching hospital. Sited in two different locations in Ondo and Akure, UNIMEDTHC offers teaching, training and research activities to support the University of Medical Sciences.
