“The Archbishop influenced me much in managing the Hospital. When I became the Chairman of the Hospital management on July,  2015, I had no option than to move the Hospital forward. I continued where my predecessors stopped. Though, there were challenges but God being on our side and connection of Archbishop Okeke with Irland, United States and his relations who are living in Irland we were assisted with loads of Hospital equipment and be able to save money for other developmental projects” 

Fr. Izunna however,  enumerated some of the services the Hospital offer which he said gives confidence to patients as; qualified medical staff, full modern laboratory/ scientists, Gynecology, Pediatrics, Hear and throat, pharmacy, Endocrinology, Dentistry orthopedics among others.” We take care of people from the womb to the tomb” He stated !
