Meridian Hospital was established in 1996 with the vision to become the leading private hospital in Nigeria, exploring the vast potentials inherent in services beginning from Port Harcourt, replicate across Nigeria and beyond borders.
We set out, determined to bring change to the concept of health-care delivery in Nigeria, to redefine hospital values and services and add meaning to the profession.
We had as an objective, to establish a one-stop centre for the average health care need for the patient in Port Harcourt, Nigeria and its environs. This way, we proposed to and now indeed operate a multi-disciplinary, multi-branched, multi-specialist hospital practice.
We began in 1996 in a leased apartment at 128 Ikwerre Road, Port Harcourt with what was available: few staff, basic equipments, simple infrastructure but with a big dream.
By 2003, we expanded into an owned, improvised property at 21 Igbokwe Street, D-Line, Port Harcourt, improving on the existing records.
Today, we are in a state-of-the-art, purpose designed, purpose built hospital complex conceived to meet today's needs and positioned for tomorrow's challenges. It is sprawling 3-storey building still at No. 21 Igbokwe Street, D-Line, Port Harcourt, with space accommodate our dream project.
The approach is the spacious parking lot with capacity for over 45 cars. You are led into a massive reception, 5 general practice consulting rooms, 7 specialist consulting rooms, wide neatly tiled corridors, gentle spacious stair cases, a lift system, a ramp, rooms for all our operational needs and equipments. There is provision for residence for doctors and other essential staff to ensure uninterrupted operations 24 hours daily. we run a 24/7 service of consultation, emergency medical services, laboratory and imaging investigations, surgical operations, antenatal and general maternity services, hospitalization services including feeding.
Associated with these are fully air-conditioned rooms, 24-hour uninterrupted power and water supply, modern diagnostic equipments, friendly, courteous and receptive staff, communication gadgets, internet access and a professional security apparatus.
The Hospital which started in 1996 with a total staff strength of 7 has witnessed a tremendous growth. Today, we satisfactorily retain the services of several notable corporate interests in and around us. We have also built bridges of international collaboration for both exchange professional programmes in training, support services, technical and outright oversea referrals.
This is our third generation Meridian Hospital.
