Delta State University and Teaching Hospital is a 300-bed facility in Nigeria that is actively developing a center of medical tourism to deliver local quality medical services at standards comparable to international guidelines. The objective is to ultimately reduce the number of Nigerians traveling out of the country to seek medical care abroad. The Delta Hospital focuses on special areas such as radiology, minimal access surgeries, orthopedic services, and offers specialized treatments for patients with chronic kidney diseases, which occupies a severe percentage of Nigerians who seek medical care abroad. Kidney transplants will begin to take place in January of next year.

Rendering this level of service requires a well established radiology department. They are one of the first hospitals in Nigeria to acquire a 64-slice Computed Tomography (CT) scanner. The facility is also equipped with a Digital Radiography (DR) department, digital mammography unit, and ultrasound services to aid patient care. Dr. Abraham Inikori, consultant radiologist and director of clinical services and training, Delta State University and Teaching Hospital, further explains the organization’s medical tourism initiative.
