Nigeria's Best Emergency Medicine and Critical Care Specialist

Duchess International Hospital

The Duchess' Hospital prides itself as the Foremost Nigerian Health care provider, delivering affordable healthcare to our patients.

Doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals specifically trained in accident and emergency care are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide advanced emergency care services in a well-equipped environment with specialised resuscitation and acute care facilities. The complete spectrum of critical care services at the Duchess Hospital are delivered through 22 highly resourced beds distributed between the Adult Intensive Care Unit (ICU), High Dependency Unit (HDU), Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU), Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

The Family Medicine and Urgent Care Clinics are the first port of call for most patients entering the hospital. The clinics offer a broad range of In-House and Out-of-Hours (OOH) services.

As specialist in general practice, family physicians are available to care for a wide range of health needs of patients irrespective of gender or age.

Our clinics are structured and well-organised with advance booking of appointments between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.

Our unique Urgent Care Centre (UCC) facilities offer a full complement of urgent primary care services on a “walk-in” basis from 5 pm until 9 am. The Urgent Care Center primarily treat injuries or illnesses requiring immediate care but not serious enough to require an emergency room visit.
