Ambode’s Wife Donates Incubator Ambulances to Hospitals

Wife of Lagos State governor, Mrs Bolanle Ambode, has said the state government is working towards achieving zero infant mortality rate.

Mrs Ambode stated this when she donated two transport incubator ambulances to Gbagada General Hospital and Lagos Island Maternity on behalf of the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials (COWLSO).

The donation was part of the committee’s health intervention project for this year.

A transport incubator ambulance is specially designed to convey “premature” babies to standard medical facilities. It is equipped with an Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

The governor’s wife said members of the committee were touched by the high mortality rate of pre-term babies, which occurred before they could access intensive care.

The transport incubators, according to her, would provide a womb-like environment for the baby with the right temperature and life-saving gadgets to help the new-born hang unto life till it gets to the ICU.
