This article covers the list of Federal Medical Centres in Nigeria, as well as their contact information. The medical facilities of Nigerian medical institutes are reported to be substandard. However, Federal Medical Centres provide help to citizens.
Federal Medical Centres, or FMCs, are located in over twenty states across the country.
And I’ll walk you through the Centres in Nigeria, as well as their contact information.
As we have a three-tiered government system, different areas of the health sector are handled by the three levels of government, which are the local government, state government, and federal government.
The local government is in charge of providing primary healthcare. While the state government is in charge of the secondary healthcare system.
And, as you might expect, the federal government continues to oversee the management of the tertiary healthcare system. There are also private healthcare facilities.
The Federal Medical Centres were established to carry out the Federal government’s responsibilities in the health sector.
Currently, 22 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have Federal Medical Centres, bringing the total number of Federal Medical Centres in the country to 23.
The medical centers exist to provide healthcare to individuals in locations when the state government’s provision is insufficient.
Many people mistake federal medical centers for teaching hospitals. Although they are similar in certain circumstances, they are not always. The two operate differently in various respects.
Federal Medical Centers always have a better capacity to meet the diverse demands of citizens at the same time than other teaching hospitals that are not federal.
When compared to other medical centers in the country, the cost of getting medical services at Federal Medical Centres is relatively modest and affordable.
Federal Medical Centres frequently have the lowest prices for all healthcare operations.
Because they are financed by the federal government, Federal Medical Centres have the luxury of heavy and expensive medical equipment and facilities. This enables them to buy more expensive equipment than medical institutes run by state or local governments.
In most circumstances, Teaching Hospitals and Federal Hospitals are distinct.
As previously stated, the country has 22 Federal Medical Centres, however Teaching Hospitals in Nigeria number in the hundreds. In summary, Federal Medical Centres are only Teaching Hospitals that are supported by Institutions (Universities) owned by the Federal Government.
