EKOCORP PLC was established in 1978 as a Joint Medical Practice reflecting the style of Teaching Hospitals, by the Founding Joint Chief Medical Directors – A.C. Eneli, S.F. Kuku and A.A.A. Obiora whose surnames provide the Hospital with its name (‘E’ for Eneli, ‘K’ for Kuku and ‘O’ for Obiora – EKO Hospital).
With its Head Office located at 31, Mobolaji Bank-Anthony Way, Maryland, Ikeja and branches in Surulere and Ikoyi areas of Lagos, the EKO Hospital has experienced the kind of phenomenal growth that has earned it the position of Nigeria’s foremost private Hospital.
Further proof of the Hospital’s growth is attested to in its shareholder base which is in excess of 8,000 (Eight Thousand) as well as its solely-occupied status as the first and only publicly quoted Hospital in Nigeria.
Affiliated to Olabisi Onabanjo University as a training centre for Clinical Students of the Obafemi Awolowo College of Health Sciences, the Hospital is intent on developing the medical content of the nation, which is also demonstrated in its acceptance of usage of its facilities by graduate and post-graduate trainees, house officers and interns accredited by the Nigerian Post-Graduate Medical College, Nigerian Medical and Dental Council and the Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Radiotherapy and Medical Laboratory Science Councils of Nigeria.
With its first-class equipment in the various fields of Medicine – Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Internal Medicine, Surgery, Dentistry, Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT), Ophthalmology, Electro Encephalography (EEG), Endoscopy, CT-Scanning, Radio-diagnosis, Radiotherapy and Effective Investigative Laboratory, patients are assured of quality primary, secondary and tertiary health care services.
Our other services such as a Diabetes/Endocrinology Centre, Comprehensive Health Screening, Fertility and Pain Management and Rehabilitation Centre at the Ikeja Head Office also testify to the Hospital’s leadership in the Nigerian Private Health Sector as do our extensive database of Health Maintenance Organisations (HMOs) and unparalleled National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) accreditation.
