Diff Hospital Abuja

DIFF is an acronym meaning Divine, Favour and Faith, which are the names of the Triplet of the Medical Director and Director of Administration, Dr. John & Mrs. Mercy Idahosa, conceived after 9 years of marriage.

DIFF Hospital was incorporated under the Corporate Affairs Commission on the 6th of October 2003 and commenced clinical services from Plot 87, Karaye Close, off Ladoke Akintola Boulevard, Garki II, Abuja on the 1st of June 2004 as a 5-bedded hospital with a staff strength of 30 after an incubation period of three and half years.

In response to the increasing need for expansion, on the 26th of February 2006, the hospital relocated to No. 6 Udi Hills Close, Aso Drive, Maitama, Abuja and expanded the scope of our clinical services to accommodate other specialties in the widening field of medicine.

By 2008, our staff strength had increased rapidly from 30 (in 2004) to 183. Today, there are over 200 staff in DIFF Hospital. Our evolution has seen us grow from  5 in-patient rooms to 26 in-patient rooms, 9 consulting rooms, 3 operating theatres and many more facilities.

Our permanent site at Plot 1195, Cadastral Zone B 18, Sector Center D, Gudu District Abuja, when completed will be exquisite, a breath of fresh air and revolutionary in medical service delivery.

DIFF Hospital symbolizes excellence in the provision of qualitative and comprehensive general medical and surgical services, gynaecological specialist practice, paediatric and assisted conception services in Nigeria.

Our corporate objective is borne out of the need to provide a conducive and pleasant atmosphere that will counteract the phobia most people have for hospital.

We are endowed with sophistication in human and material resources, which reflects in the standard of our medical services. We care for all patients with empathy and total devotion to duty and with the fear of God without discrimination. Our services are prompt, courteous, comprehensive, efficient and effective. Our strength partly lies in the use of the state – of – the art technology in a clean, conducive and patient friendly environment using highly skilled and motivated staff who see their employment as a vocation rather than a mere bread basket.
