Asset & Resource Management Holding Company (ARM) has given a boost to healthcare facilities in Lagos State with the renovation and donation of a set of laboratory equipment to the Outpatient Health Centre in Onikan.

The facelift to the hospital facility built in the 60’s according to ARM was in line with its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy, to support the Lagos State Government in the battle against COVID-19, as well as support immediate communities to live healthy life for growth and economic prosperity.

Receiving the donation on behalf of the state government, Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi said the equipment donated by ARM is the first of its kind in Nigeria and in the whole of West Africa.
