Thomas Etuh Donates $500,000 Health Facility to Rural Community

Thomas Etuh, a Nigerian multimillionaire who deals with the importation of urea fertilizers, has donated a hospital and skill acquisition center to the Ifewara community in Osun State.

The hospital’s new center, Jennifer Etuh Medical Center which costs over $500,000 is named after his late wife, Jennifer Ramatu Etuh who passed away in 2020.

The facility which sits in the country’s southwest region on a six-hectare land has a surgery room, pharmacy, consulting rooms, labor and delivery room, an accident, emergency room, amongst others. It also has a theater for surgical and gynecological procedures, and a full-services morgue.

During his remarks at the launch of the Medical Center, which was officially commissioned on Wednesday, the 26th of April, 2023 during a ceremony that was attended by Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke, and Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the head of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Etuh expressed concerns that only 20 percent out of Nigeria’s 30,000 primary health centers are functional.

According to the Nigerian fertilizer mogul, the facility is set to provide available, accessible and affordable world-class health care services to women, children and the people of the State and Nigeria as a whole to help live a healthy and fulfilling life.

He added that the facility would be managed by the Redeemed Christian Church of God, though it was built to assist those that reside in Ifewara.

The new medical center is the third of other full-service hospitals built by Etuh in memory of his late wife.

“My late wife wondered why certain medical care was only for certain people. Therefore, the need to establish medical centers to address health Challenges and provide access to quality medical care for vulnerable populations,” Etuh said.

Etuh is the founder of TAK Group, an agro-allied conglomerate. The company owns fertilizer blending plants across Nigeria and manufactures and distributes seeds and Agrochemicals.
