The award won by Lagoon Hospitals was determined by an independent jury team, votes from the e-voting platform, and the final decision of the Advisory Committee of NHEA.

A key principle of Lagoon Hospitals is that it centres on innovation and qualitative healthcare. Driven by this principle, Lagoon Hospitals strives to provide the best standards of patient care, which has led to the development of unique specialties across medical disciplines, within the Lagoon Hospitals Group.
The CEO of Lagoon Hospitals, Mr. Rajeev Bhandari, commented “We are delighted to have received such a renowned industry award. Our vision has always been for Lagoon Hospitals to become the most respected healthcare service provider in Nigeria. This award symbolises that that vision is being achieved. For us, there is no limit we will go to ensure Nigerians receive the highest quality care they deserve, hence stemming the high medical tourism from Nigeria to other countries.
