Your Excellency, the Executive Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Adeleke, Honourable Members Invited Special Guests, Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen!

It is my pleasure to welcome you all to the Official Commissioning of the Osogbo Central Hospital.

Few years ago, while keen on getting a motto for the hospital, We prayed and sought God's Galde. Behold the outcome is "GOD OUR PILLAR AND STRENGTH!" So today, as we return all glory and honor to our Pillar, wa thankful that God Almighty has always been our strength.

Osogbo Central Hospital a.k.a. OCH came into existence on the 1st of June 2015, as Oke Baale Central Hospital in a 3-bedroom apartment. During the first week, we shouldered all the duties required professionals, para-professionals and janitors because we had no single staff. While I was the driver the gateman and the Doctor; my wife was the Cleaner, the Nurse, the Record Officer and also a Doctor. Eventually our workforce expanded when we hired a cleaner and three Nurses.

By 2017, we conceived a bigger idea and changed the nomenclature from Oke Baale Central Hospital to OSOGBO CENTRAL HOSPITAL.

As a group specialist hospital that is accredited by Osun state government, National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Osun Health Insurance Agency (OHIA) and all Health Maintenance Organizations (HMD we believe that lives are sacred and that every patient deserves to be happy through accessible, affordable and prompt healthcare services.
