THE STORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF PORT HARCOURT TEACHING HOSPITAL, PORT HARCOURT.
The establishment of the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital in April 1980 came as a result of the desire of the Federal Government to provide excellent medical services, manpower training, and research in all the geopolitical zones of the country. The mandate of the Hospital was derived from Decree 10 of 1985, University Teaching Hospitals (reconstitution of Board etc) Decree. Our Hospital’s vision is “To be a first-rate world-class Hospital” and its mission statement is “To provide excellent Medical Services, Manpower Training, and Research, using a well trained and well-motivated workforce and the best affordable modern technology with a culture of courtesy, humanness, and patient friendliness”.
