The health care centres failed to meet government standards

The Enugu State Ministry of Health task force has shut down 10 privately owned hospitals for failing to comply with standards, inadequacy of health personnel and non-functional equipment.

The State Commissioner for Information, Chuks Ugwoke made this known at the state executive council meeting.

He said that the task force was set up to monitor the standard of practice in private health facilities in the state.

The shut facilities include: Moonlight Clinic, Chief Dennis Okafor Memorial Hospital and Maternity, Zirank Hospital and Maternity, and Mount Olive Specialist Hospital.

He added that the ongoing exercise will cover more than 450 registered private health facilities to ensure that owners comply with the government standards and enable those seeking health care services get the best from the institutions.

Ugwoke warned that strict sanctions would be imposed on those who reopen their clinics without meeting the standards.
