Facilities Officer at Cedarcrest Hospitals

Cedarcrest Hospitals / Cedarcrest Orthopaedic Clinics Ltd is a modern specialist medical care centre located in the heart of Abuja, Nigeria’s blossoming capital. It was established in January 2008 with the aim of providing a high standard of local healthcare that is comparable with what obtains in other more developed parts of the world.
The centre started off as a highly specialized orthopaedic facility, registered as Cedarcrest Orthopaedic Clinics Ltd. Before long, it became obvious that other specialties had to be incorporated partly due to the success of the centre and partly due to the lack of local specialist services in those specialties that relate directly with orthopaedic and trauma surgery.
Its core specialty areas have now been expanded to include neuro/spine surgery, plastic/reconstructive surgery and dermatology. Thus was Cedarcrest Hospitals born in early 2009. The hospital also renders non-core specialist services covering internal medicine, obstetrics and gynaecology, radiology, rheumatology, ear nose and throat surgery, dietetics, physiotherapy and general practice.
These key specialists are supported by highly trained and courteous doctors, nurses, imaging scientists, laboratory scientists, administrative and ancillary staff who strive to make patients’ experience at Cedarcrest is as pleasant as possible. We work in liaison with centres in the United Kingdom and the United States and frequently have visiting surgeons from these foreign hospitals, as well as sending patients to these centres where specific facilities for their care are not optimal here.
We are also supported by a wide range of related specialties and specialist services. With adequate facilities and highly skilled manpower, Cedarcrest Hospitals has over several years, provided specialized treatment to a large number of patients from the federal capital and the rest of Nigeria. This has made it possible for patients to get timely highly specialized surgical treatment without the need to travel abroad.Job Code: #T00004
