Ives Medicare Foundation ( A Health NGO ) announces its 50% discounted promotion in the cost of Invitro Fertilization (IVF) treatment for willing couples. This initiative is in its 10th year. We identified cost as a major factor militating against stemming incidences of Infertility in Nigeria and this initiative aims to lighten up drastically the cost burden on couples who are experiencing delay in conception. With close to 2000 IVF babies to the credit of our IVF clinic partners and with the historic success story of MRS CHRISTIE OMOLARA ORURHE, a 60yrs old mother who benefitted from the programme and delivered of a baby in 2014 thus becoming the oldest IVF mum in Africa, our belief in the prospects of IVF as a solution in infertility is further strengthened. We are firmly determined to continuously make IVF accessible and relatively affordable to couples. Register bw 1st – 31st August 2018.

According to him, although IVF is effective in treating infertility, the cost of the procedure has discouraged many couples who need it.
Okewale said, “The issue of cost has been a major challenge to those that need the service. A cycle of IVF treatment costs between N800,000 and N1m. How many Nigerians can afford it?
The Chief Medical Director, St. Ives Specialist Hospital, Lagos Dr. Tunde Okewale, has said the hospital will subsidise the cost of Intro-Vitro Fertilisation treatment for fertility challenged couples by 50 per cent.
He noted that the yearly promo, which is offered in collaboration with the hospital’s foundation, is aimed at assisting childless couples who could not afford the cost of the treatment.
Okewale announced the offer, expected to begin next month, at a media briefing in Lagos on Monday.
“If the price is slashed through discounts, more couples who need it will be able to access it. So, we decided to do the subsidy in order to meet the clamour for this particular form of treatment.
“ The yearly 50- Percent-Discount Promotion in IVF has helped many patients in the last six years and still thrives. It aims to reduce the financial burden on couples that are experiencing delay in procreation as a result of one fertility challenge or the other.”
Noting that the treatment was expensive, the gynaecologist urged the government to encourage the training of personnel in ways to handle IVF cases in specialist hospitals.

Immunization is perhaps the best show of love you can give to your newborn because it protects him or her from several childhood diseases that the baby’s underdeveloped immune system might not be able to fight on its own. And at St. Ives Hospital, we offer the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) to children delivered in our clinics or that are registered with us after birth.

Our EPI schedule is every first and third Thursdays of every month.

Time is from 9a.m to 12noon.

The Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) is an improvement on the traditional National Program on Immunization (NPI). It was initiated and redefined by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1978.

The NPI vaccine

BCG

Tuberculosis

DPT

Tetanus, Pertussis, Diphtheria

HBV

Hepatitis B

Oral Polio

Measles Vaccine

Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever.

The NPI

The EPI has now become the gold standard in any immunization program.

As can be seen from the table above, the NPI is limited in its protection while the EPI provides much more coverage for many more diseases than the NPI ever did. And is therefore the best way to go for TOTAL PROTECTION for children.

You can also take advantage of our 24-hour Pediatrician Hospital cover at our Opebi branch.
