The management of Vedic Lifecare has attributed its closure by the Health Monitoring and Accreditation Agency (HEFAMAA), to the delay in the issuance and procurement of licence to its Indian expatriate medical personnel , saying the practising licenses of the three expatriates have now been issued by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN).
The head of operations, Vedic Lifecare Hospital, Dr. Tosan Omaghomi, who disclosed in this a statement and a copy made available to LEADERSHIP, the hospital said the applications of the medical personnel had been submitted but, there were some delays in the issuance and procurement of the personnel’s licenses from MDCN.
The facility head of operation who, however, stated that all requirements had been complied with, vetted and endorsed by the government of India through the Indian High Commission Nigeria said the affected medical personnel are qualified with over 20 to 30 years of experience internationally with all documents endorsed by the medical authorities in India and elsewhere.
Her words, “since the closure, we have been working closely with MDCN and are pleased to report that, with their help and support, as well as that of the Indian High Commission, we have successfully completed the registration of these three expatriate medical personnel and their practising licenses have now been issued. “
“Vedic Lifecare Hospital is committed to the highest standards of professionalism and ethics and would never jeopardise the health and well- being of any of our patients by engaging unqualified personnel.
“We have a strong relationship with the MDCN, HEFAMAA and the Lagos state Ministry of Health and have worked very closely with them in the past, most recently being during the COVID 19 pandemic where we served as one of the government certified isolation and treatment centres.”
