ECWA Hospital Egbe is a 121-bed, multi-service complex, comprised of approximately 33 acres with 68 buildings. Situated on a major intersection between Ilorin and Lokojo, people come to the hospital from all over Nigeria.
The hospital departments include: Administration; Accounts; Pharmacy; Operating Theatre Unit; Radiology; Outpatient Department; Laboratory; Surgical Wards; Maternity; Under Fives Clinic, Antenatal and Family Planning Clinic; Eye Centre; Maintenance; Evangelism and HIV/AIDS Counseling Clinic. ECWA Hospital Egbe is a major training centre for the Family Residency Program, and the ECWA School of Nursing and ECWA School of Midwifery.
A major focus for the hospital, to train resident doctors in general medical practice, will continue into the future. Since its accreditation by the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria in 1982, many highly skilled General Practitioners have been trained through this facility and by its superbly qualified professional staff.
ECWA School of Nursing
Established in 1955, ECWA School of Nursing was one of the first reputable nursing schools in Nigeria. Today it continues to graduate highly disciplined nurses reaching its goal of training Christian nurses for service at Egbe Hospital and beyond. Further accreditation was received in 2006 by the
Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria.
ECWA School of Midwifery
The Midwives Training School separated from the School of Nursing through numerous accreditation processes, becoming a fully accredited School of Midwifery in 2006. Hundreds of graduated midwives have received commendation for their training from the School of Midwifery.
Operating Theatre Unit
The operating theatre unit remains one of the best in the region. The hospital is known for its excellent surgical care. From early on, highly qualified resident and visiting surgeons have provided general surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as orthopedic and trauma surgery.
Maternity and Under 5's Clinic
The Maternity and Under 5's Clinic continues to offer prenatal and postnatal care for mothers providing immunization and education to promote good child development and health care.
The Eye Centre began as a clinic within the hospital in 1970 with the support of CBM, formerly called Christoffel Blindenmission. Under the direction of a full-time ophthalmologist, the Eye Centre now offers consulting clinics, surgery, eye screening and outreach. In 2008 alone, more than 3600 lives were positively affected through the centre's easy accessibility and community programming.
Evangelism has always been a major focus of the hospital. In 1952 that focus grew to include provision of excellent health care, alongside attending to the spiritual needs of the patients and surrounding community. Three offices for pastors were completed in 1971, making evangelism and counseling an official unit of the hospital. Many ECWA churches are in existence today because they were established by people whose lives were changed by meeting Jesus Christ at ECWA Hospital Egbe. The Rev. D.M. Olusiyi Memorial Chapel of Blessing, founded in 1987, offers staff, students and patients a place to worship and be discipled.
Spring of Life HIV/Aids Counseling Clinic
Spring of Life Egbe is one of two centers in Nigeria focusing on areas of awareness, education, voluntary testing and counseling in regards to HIV/Aids. This includes prevention of mother to child transmission and home-based care.
A dam and reservoir system was built in the early years of the hospital's growth to provide water to the hospital on a 24-hour basis. Electric and diesel generators were installed to provide the hospital with its own generating back-up system. Today the Maintenance Department is responsible for these assets as well as maintaining an effective maintenance culture in overseeing the upkeep of hospital vehicles, grounds, buildings and roads. The provision of water and electricity to the compound is also overseen by this department.
