Contrary to speculations that Duchess International Hospital Lagos, which performed life-saving surgery on Vice President Yemi Osibanjo, was only for the wealthy, the hospital’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr Adetokunbo Shitta-Bey, said on Friday that Nigerians need only N5,000 to see a doctor, adding that the hospital’s main priority was to ensure access to affordable world-class healthcare.

He stated that for as little as N5,000, you can register as a patient and consult with a doctor.

Shitta-Bey stated as a guest on a TV show following the successful surgery on the Vice President’s leg at the hospital that the combination of affordability and world-class facilities would have been a significant factor in the Vice President’s decision to have his surgery performed at the Duchess International Hospital.

He emphasized that the Duchess Hospital’s doors were open to all Nigerians seeking affordable healthcare.

He stated that as a beneficiary of the Federal Government’s medical intervention fund, the hospital has been able to lower its fees and make its services more accessible to the community, to the benefit of everyone seeking high-quality, affordable healthcare in Nigeria.

“The Duchess International Hospital is in the heart of Ikeja, about 10 minutes from Murtala Mohammed International Airport and less than 90 minutes by air from all Nigerian state capitals.”

The hospital is uniquely situated to serve the entire country and provide affordable healthcare in a wide range of medical specialties.

“The Hospital also offers a full range of comprehensive Total Body Medical Check-up services of the same type and standard found in medical tourism destinations such as Germany, Dubai, and the United Kingdom, but at much lower and more affordable prices.”

“The Duchess International Hospital’s range of affordable healthcare services will go a long way toward reversing the trend of medical tourism outside of Nigeria,” Shitta-Bey added.
