With a view to reversing the unacceptably high Maternal Mortality Rate Indices in Lagos State the present Administration of Mr. Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu has completed the construction and equipping of yet another 110-Bed Maternal and Child Centre located in Badagry.
The MCC design was mooted as a Four (4) Storey edifice with 110 bed complement.
This MCC like others was uniquely designed to suit the pre-conceptual integrated health services including:
Laboratory Services/Blood bank
The facility has a reception, patient waiting section, the medical records section, the outpatient consulting rooms, the resuscitation room, the family planning clinic section, the call room, the laboratory, pharmacy, Ultrasound scan room, labor rooms, delivery rooms, theatre, recovery room, Intensive care baby unit, treatment room, pre-natal ward, the post-natal ward and nursery.
The completion of this critical health infrastructure has no doubt demonstrated the Sanwo-Olu’s administration commitment towards addressing the twin issue of maternal and child deaths in Lagos. No woman or child should die from normal life enhancing process of procreation.
