Writer's Review

There are three blocks in the hospital named A, B and C. Blocks A and B are in use while Block C is temporarily closed for renovation. The popularity of the hospital has made expansion necessary to accommodate the rising population that visit the hospital. It is well-managed and kept clean always though. And the staff are very warm and will go out of their way to help provide comfort in any way they can. Really lovely maternity centre.

  • I recommend Lagos Island Maternity. It is a premier and still the best standard maternity hospital in West Africa. I was born there and my daughter too so I am talking of two generations of experience. I once had my Student Hospital Work Experience there also. The place is very good for both maternity and gynaecological cases. Well funded and in central Lagos for easy accessibility-Feyi Taofeek
