9 thoughts on “Hospitals in Nigeria: 5 Best Private Hospitals in Nigeria”

  1. Hello, perhaps this is the list of Best 5 in Lagos and not in Nigeria. Also it helps to highlight the criteria used. Size might be the reason Eko Hospital is on the list as it arguably can not lay claim to best in a number of fields in Ikeja let alone Lagos. If you wer to check the South West outside of Lagos then, Momoh Memorial Hospital, Oyo, Molly Specialist Hospital, Ibadan, Mercy Group Clinics, Abeokuta deserve serious consideration.

  2. …and where did you put Diff Hospital, Maitama Abuja, Nisa Premier Hospital, Jabi Abuja and Premier Hospital in Lagos? These guys should even rated ahead of the advertised 5 hospitals above. Diff Hospital alone is huge and well-equipped, their new 9 floor facility will be the biggest private hospital facility in Nigeria by the time it’s commissioned next year. Nisa Premier Abuja is flooded by mainly Cuban top-rated physicians. I do not know the parameter used to rate the above 5 hospitals, which these hospitals won’t surpass.
