Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on Thursday commissioned the first state-owned Helipad for medical emergencies in Nigeria at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja.
Governor Ambode said the Helipad is a lifesaving asset and critical complement to the efficient functioning of this Unit and other emergency services being rendered by the State.
“The Helipad will also aid the movement of patients from remote areas where healthcare facilities to provide the level of emergency medicine required are not readily available.”

While inspecting medical facilities at the LASUTH complex, the governor said the upgrading of the 247-bed and five Theatre Suits for pregnant women, popularly called Ayinke House, would be ready for use by 2017.
He also said approval had been granted for the rehabilitation, upgrade and bulk purchase of medical equipment required in 20 Secondary and 21 Primary health facilities across the State.
He further promised that his administration will intensify efforts to acquire an Air Ambulance to complete the cycle, as the Helipad would be operated by specially trained personnel who would give 24-hour service, guarantee expert medical care during emergency transfer and safe landing at all times.

The Governor also said with the recent execution of a Memorandum of Understanding with selected investors, the State is on the verge of becoming a hub for medical tourism once the Medical Park at the old School of Nursing, Ikoyi comes on stream.
“With the support of our hardworking and dedicated personnel in the health sector, we are confident that we will achieve our set objectives in the health sector, save lives and guarantee a healthy State,” the Governor said.
