Benin psychiatric hospital introduces obstetric, gynaecology services, others

4 min read

The Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital in Benin City has introduced some cutting-edge medical services, including surgery, obstetrics/gynaecology, cardiology, and neurology to its services.

A statement by the hospital on Saturday said the inclusions aimed to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness by integrating mental health care with specialised treatments.

“This expansion represents a major milestone in the hospital’s ongoing efforts to provide holistic and integrated healthcare services to the general public.

The hospital also boasts a state-of-the-art molecular laboratory, radio-diagnostic facilities, 4-D ultrasound services, and immunization, among others,” the statement read.

The Chief Medical Director/CEO of FNPH, Dr Imafidon Agbonile, stated that the introduction of these new medical services was aimed at broadening the scope of care available to patients and addressing the pervasive stigma associated with mental illness.

“By offering a diverse range of medical services within a single institution, the hospital fosters a more inclusive environment that normalises seeking treatment for both mental and physical health issues. Patients can now receive comprehensive care within the same facility, reducing the need to travel to multiple locations for different health concerns. This integration ensures continuity of care, reduces patient stress, enhances overall outcomes, and encourages more individuals to seek necessary care without fear of judgment or stigma,” he said.

Agbonile revealed that the expansion of services was strategically designed to improve the hospital’s Internally Generated Revenue.

He added, “By attracting a broader patient base through the provision of high-demand specialities such as surgery, obstetrics/gynaecology, cardiology, and neurology, the hospital is positioning itself as a leading healthcare provider in Edo State.

“By integrating these vital services, we are not only addressing the immediate health needs of our patients but also promoting a more inclusive and supportive approach to mental health.”

He maintained that the hospital’s visionary approach exemplifies the synergy between mental health care and specialised medicine.

Agbonile said, “The hospital remains steadfast in its mission to provide comprehensive, patient-centered care. The addition of surgical, obstetric/gynaecological, cardiology, and neurology services marks a new chapter in the hospital’s history, one that promises greater health outcomes and a reduction in the stigma associated with mental illness.”
