Dame Irene Okwuosa Memorial Hospital is a world class multispecialty hospital with a special interest in Cardiothoracic care and Cardiovascular care capable of delivering equitable, high-quality medical treatment in Oraifite LGA, Anambra State, Nigeria.
Established in 2021, DIOMH was established to fill in the gaps in the Nigerian healthcare system by catering to the needs of the underserved across the country by providing subsidised service. The hospital is equipped with highly trained medical, surgical and administrative staff who are dedicated to provide high quality service and care to patients and integrity in their work.
The Hospital is complete with a 64-slice CT scan, the latest Cath lab, 4D Ultrasound Scan machine, and ICU Machines with ventilators. The Hospital also produces its own medical gas, contributing to the sustainability of the project. The hospital is also accredited as a Federal and State wide 24 hour ambulance service
In 2023, the Primary Health Care (PHC) center was built out of repurposed shipping containers.
This PHC was designed by students at Texas A&M University in partnership with other organizations and adapted by engineers at Frazimex Engineering Limited in Nigeria to cater to DIOMH’s specific needs. The PHC is an indigenized solution to Primary Health Care challenges in Nigeria.
In 2022, we partnered with the Vincent Ohaju Obioma Memorial (VOOM) Foundation, a Texas based Foundation and so far this partnership has provided both subsidised and free-of-charge healthcare services to over 4,000 beneficiaries from all over Nigeria to date.
With this medical mission, we have performed 43 open-heart surgeries at DIOMH, including on a 9- month-old infant, which accounts for over 15% of the total number of open-heart surgeries carried out by all the hospitals in Nigeria combined during the year.
