LASG to erect new Massey Specialist Children Hospital in 18-Months

Construction work has commenced at the site designated for the new Massey Street Children’s Hospital located at the Adeniji Adele Road, Lagos Island.

Commissioner for Health, Prof. Akin Abayomi who was at the site of the construction on an inspection tour stated that the commencement of construction is in fulfillment of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s Medical Infrastructure Blueprint strategy and his promise to replace the current Massey Street Children’s Hospital with a new specialist Children’s Hospital that is spacious and fit for purpose.

Abayomi while speaking on the rationale for embarking on the project said that the construction of a new Children’s hospital is geared towards addressing the challenge of space and expansion being encountered at the site of the current Massey Street Children’s Hospital.

He said: “We are aware of the challenges encountered at the old Massey Street Children’s hospital; we understand that there isn’t enough space for expansion and this prompted us to look for a new location that is not too far away”

“Luckily, we found this site and we have spent a lot of time designing a specialist Children’s hospital. It is going to be very iconic, designed fit for purpose and will serve us for decades.”
