Lagos, Nigeria. – The latest quarterly list of the top hospitals in Nigeria ranked by Hygeia HMO enrollees has been released. Throughout Q2 2020, Nigerians and the rest of the world fought the COVID19 pandemic and got locked down for several weeks.
This public health emergency stretched the capacities of healthcare systems and saw many healthcare providers suspending care or offering only skeletal, emergency services.
As Nigeria’s premier health insurer, Hygeia HMO continued to provide access to care to all enrollees. By maintaining the tradition of using feedback from enrolees to provide illuminating clarity on the best places to receive care, this ranking provides recognition to the most deserving hospitals.
Hygeia HMO members who participated in the rankings come from across the socio-economic spectrum and thus provides insights into providers that truly serve patients well. Unsurprisingly, all the top 3 rated hospitals were away from Lagos, the Nigerian epicentre of the COVID19 pandemic.
