Iwosan Investments, a prominent Lagos-based healthcare investment firm, led by Nigerian businessman Fola Adeola, has inaugurated a cutting-edge medical facility in Victoria Island under its renowned brand, Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals.
The new hospital, strategically located on Ligali Ayorinde Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, is positioned as a state-of-the-art healthcare center focusing on clinical expertise and customer experience. It is expected to redefine the medical landscape, enhance clinical services, and provide a boost to healthcare accessibility in Nigeria.
Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals aims to revolutionize the healthcare sector, addressing the challenge of medical tourism by delivering top-notch services. Its new medical facility in Victoria Island is poised to provide a wide range of services, including open-heart surgery, bariatrics surgery, urology, neurology, critical emergency care, and more.
The launch of the medical facility follows the acquisition of the Lagoon Hospitals Group, a leading hospital operator in Nigeria, by Iwosan Investments nearly two years ago. Under Adeola, this acquisition led to the rebranding of Lagoon Hospitals to Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals, consolidating the commitment to superior healthcare provision.
Speaking at the inauguration, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu commended the initiative, stating, “Today is about Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals. This institution’s legacy is one I am proud of. The opening of this state-of-the-art healthcare facility in Victoria Island marks a significant step towards improving the lives of our communities.”
Fola Laoye, co-founder and CEO of Iwosan Investments, highlighted the commitment to excellence, stating, “Today, Iwosan Lagoon Hospital group builds upon a proud legacy of excellence since its inception in 1986. We remain focused on excellence with a combination of our managerial expertise, clinical technology, and empathy-led high-quality patient care accessible to all Nigerians.”
Iwosan Investments, founded by Adeola and Laoye, is a leading healthcare investment firm committed to transforming and improving Nigeria’s healthcare landscape. It plans to achieve this by investing in critical healthcare infrastructure across the country, addressing the need for enhanced healthcare services.
Its latest expansion not only broadens the reach of Iwosan Lagoon Hospitals but also reflects the firm’s dedication to providing convenient and accessible healthcare across Nigeria. The unveiling of the state-of-the-art facility in Victoria Island underscores the ongoing efforts to elevate healthcare standards and meet the diverse healthcare needs of the Nigerian population.
Adeola, co-founder and chairman of Iwosan Investments and founder of Nigeria’s Guaranty Trust Holding Company Plc, wears multiple hats. He chairs Main One Cable Company Limited, which operates West Africa’s first open-access submarine cable. Additionally, he serves as chairman of FATE Foundation.
