The attention of the Management of University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Ondo State has been drawn to a viral publication making the round via different social media handles belonging to one Oluyemi Fasipe, CEO, YemieFash Media alleging purported looting of ICU equipment donated by the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).

Ordinarily, the management of the Institution would not have dignified the said report with a response, but for the need to set the record straight and reassure the well-meaning individuals and the general public, the donor of the equipment (RCCG) and other prospective donors, of a known culture of effective usage and management of donated equipment by the Hospital.

As at the moment, we hereby emphatically state that all the equipment are intact and at optimal use at the various points of service within the Hospital.

As a matter of fact, a monitoring and evaluation team of His Love Foundation (RCCG), the Christian Social Responsibility Ministry of the Redeemed Christian Church of God that donated the equipment visited the Hospital for its usual routine check on 9th November, 2023 to verify the state and level of usage of the equipment. Their findings according to what they saw was very satisfactory.

During the press session, opportunity will be created to address the Print and Electronic Media on this matter and other matters of interest. A Media tour of the facility will be carried out to confirm the physical presence of all the equipment at the various designated point of usage.

The Management hereby demands a retraction of this false publication and an apology within the next 48 hours from Mr. Yemi Fasipe, the author of the maligning report, failure to do this, the management will not hesitate to press for legal actions against Mr. Oluyemi Fasipe for his libelous publication against the Hospital.

The management of the Hospital wish to use this opportunity once again to re-echo its appreciation to the Redeemed Christian Church of God, under the Headship of our Revered Father in the Lord, Pastor E.A. Adeboye, for this great good to humanity through the donation of the equipment.

The equipment so far, have been highly beneficial to several hundreds of patients in area of ICU care, Echocardiography, anaesthesia and renal services.
