About the center
The University Health Services is an integral and active arm of the University that started from the inception of the Institution. The Health Services consist of these units;
- 1. Consulting
- 2. Nursing
- 3. Pharmacy
- 4. Medical Laboratory/Radiology
McU Management is deeply committed to impacting the community positively through the provision of quality and affordable health services. The Health Centre had since keyed into the initiative. For the VC, the Institution cannot keep developing without impacting the lives of the locals in the community. In the light of these, effective and efficient Medical Mission Outreach has been put in place for the people of Seriki-Sotayo and 14 other Communities. This was well planned and meticulously executed in phases by our devoted staff.
The first phase was held 2013 with activities which included screening tests for hypertension and diabetes free of charge. The communities reached during this stage were: Osiele, Ajebo, Aderupatan, Soora-Baale, Mamu, Debore, Seriki-Sotayo, Alapako, Okebadan, Fidiwo, Abatan and Ogunmakin.
Through the initiative, over 2,400+ families from the communities had registered permanently and were receiving treatments from the University Health Centre from time to time. During the second phase in 2014, screening tests for eye ailments such as cataract, pterigium, and glaucoma were conducted. A special eye surgical operation for extraction of cataract, pterigium and treatment for glaucoma; was carried out, precisely on Saturday 6th April, 2013. And a Post Operation Review soon followed. The results were the successful surgical operation of not less than six patients. Among the six patients was the Baale of Seriki-Sotayo. They were full of appreciations, following the restoration of their sights.
But in a bid to do more for the community and humanity, the University Management has facilitated the acquisition of an ambulance to complement the operations at the Health Centre aside other upgrades. These developments have positioned the Health Centre to continue to touch lives through innovative and sustainable Health Care Services for all stakeholders. Suffice to say that “the Healthy Institution, Healthy Community initiative” is fast repositioning health services and more would still unfold in the days and months to come.
