University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH)

The Federal Government took over the University of Benin Teaching Hospital on April 1, 1975, making it the sixth teaching hospital after Ibadan Teaching Hospital and Lagos Teaching Hospital. The Institution has been resolute in its response to difficulties as they emerge, to the point that the UBTH may proudly claim to have completed its mandate. For more than four decades, the Tertiary Referral Hospital, widely regarded as a Center of Excellence, has remarkably and effectively served as the last port of call for expert management of diverse and varied disease conditions in Edo, Delta, part of Kogi, and Ondo states, which largely form its catchment area, and occasionally further afield. Colonel Samuel O. Ogbemudia, the then Governor of Nigeria’s Midwestern State, and Prof. Tiamiyu Belo-Osagie conceived the University of Benin Teaching Hospital in 1969. Following private trips to the Island Maternity Hospital in Lagos and the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, the idea to construct a suitable medical hospital in Nigeria’s Midwestern region arose. The Governor was reportedly satisfied with the amenities of these hospitals following his visits, according to records. In a budget speech delivered by Colonel Samuel O. Ogbemudia in April 1972, the “Midwest Medical Centre” was renamed “University of Benin Teaching Hospital.” Prof. Tiamiyu Belo-Osagie, in particular, was lauded for his selfless efforts from the hospital’s inception to completion. He was a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Benin, as well as Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Provost of the College of Medical Sciences. The University of Benin Teaching Hospital has made a significant contribution to the preferment. To efficiently address the hospital’s needs, the UBTH now has a Dialysis Center, CT Scanning Service, a fully integrated Accident Center, and a fully working Oxygen generating unit. The UBTH is a leader in West Africa in terms of training and research. UBTH will continue to lead innovation in research, clinical services, and compassionate care after 35 years of exceptional healthcare advancements.
