The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH), Sagamu, Dr Peter Adefuye, has revealed that the facility generated N308.7 million as revenue between January and August, 2018.
Adefuye disclosed this when the House of Representatives Committee on Health visited the hospital on Monday.
He stated that the revenue generated represented 84 per cent of the expected internal revenue for the year.
He noted that the amount was generated from earnings from medical services, administration fees, contractor registration fees, sales of bills of eateries and application forms, among others.
Adefuye explained that the hospital only received N65.2 million for capital projects in the period under review.
He added that the institution purchased motor vehicles, power generating set, health and medical equipment, and also rehabilitated and repaired health centre and other departments.
He, however, decried shortage of personnel and called on the committee to ensure more workers are employed in the hospital.
Rep. Israel Jolaosho, the Chairman of the committee, commended the institution for services rendered to the people despite challenges being faced.
“If government has released more funds, you would have done better in terms of service rendered. Don’t relent in your effort,” he said.
Other members of the committee present at the visit included Messrs Akinpelu Aina, Ojo Viwanu and Jimi Otukoya.
