SIR: Here is a special appeal to the Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, our listening and performing leader, to urgently consider the upgrade of Bomadi General Hospital to a central hospital. The need to improve the hospital has become vital due to the rising demand for high-quality specialised healthcare services within the area.
The Bomadi General Hospital facility which was established a long time ago serves four local government areas in Delta State and parts of Bayelsa State. Particularly, it serves the people of Bomadi, Patani, Burutu and Ughelli South LGAs in Delta State and some local government areas in Bayelsa State. There is no doubt that the hospital is overstretched and may no longer meet the health care needs of the people. The hospital gets easily over-crowded which makes doctor-patient confidentiality herculean.

It’s also vital to note that a lot of preventable deaths within the riverine areas are due to a lack of access to high-quality medical care. Within the process of journeying to the referral central hospital in Warri, many lives have been lost
The people of Bomadi, Patani, Burutu, Ughelli South LGAs and the neighbouring Bayelsa State could be very grateful if this demand is given a favourable consideration as it will bring about quality health care services and reduction of preventable deaths within the area.
