UBTH loses N100m yearly to patients’ inability to pay bills

The Chief Medical Director (CMD), University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), Prof. Darlington Obaseki, has said the hospital loses an average of N100 million revenue yearly to patients who accessed its facility but were unable to settle their medical bills.

He said in 2020 alone, about 400 patients who accessed treatment at the hospital were unable to pay their bills.

Prof. Obaseki, who stated this in Benin during the award of prizes and recognition of deserving staff at the weekend, said his vision was to make UBTH a leading hospital in West Africa.
