The International Hospital Federation has designated the 15th of December as a global day of awareness for hospital and health service providers that have delivered exceptional service amid the coronavirus pandemic.
After a call for entries in July, the IHF is honored to announce that 103 hospitals and health service providers across 28 countries will be receiving the special recognition for demonstrating initiative, agility, and an incredible capacity to innovate under extraordinary circumstances. They have instituted changes in the provision of healthcare, from technological innovations in diagnosis and treatment, to restructuring workflow systems and doctor-patient interactions.
Lagos Island Maternity Hospital put in a submission and is humble to have been recognised as one of the hospitals worthy of recognition for the response put in place towards the effort.
Congratulations to the management and staff of LIMH and especially the Covid-19 Response Committee.
