She said that as a result of these tests, several diseases have been diagnosed while different life-threatening ailments have been nipped in the bud. Omeiza added that these tests have also helped in the effective treatment of the patients.

HADC, Ilorin, was established by the Kwara State government as a state-of-the-art modern healthcare facility, with a mission to ensure consistent provision of reliable comprehensive diagnostic and allied healthcare services.

HADC is among the key projects the state government executed with the N17billion bond it obtained in 2009.
