Gov. Ugwuanyi applauded the diocese for building such a unique hospital.

Ugwuanyi said the hospital would not only provide health care services for residence of the state, it would also provide job opportunities for unemployed youths.

The Diocesan Bishop, Christian Onyia, said the health facility would go a long way in catering for the health care need of the people.

Onyia said the hospital was part of the Anglican Church evangelism, adding that the facility’s laboratory equipment were automated.

According to him, results of laboratory samples come out within 15 minutes.
