  • About Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki (FETHA)
  • The former Federal Medical Centre Abakaliki now Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki was established in the 1930s by the then colonial administration to serve as a casualty control post for soldiers wounded in the Cameroon theatre of the 2nd world war. It subsequently became the Abakaliki General Hospital, administered successively by the then Eastern Regional Government, the then East Central, Anambra, Enugu and finally Ebonyi States Governments.

    By 1973, the Hospital had a full complement of Consultant Staff and was approved for training of House Officers. Subsequently, the facilities deteriorated and the progressive loss of Consultant Staff as the East Central State was split into many States impacted adversely on the hospital services. Thus, accreditation for training of House Officers lapsed and services deteriorated to such an extent that the Hospital almost became moribund.

    Following the agreement between the Federal government of Nigeria and the Enugu State Government, the General Hospital, Abakaliki was taken over by the Federal Ministry of Health as a Federal Medical Centre on March 1, 1990 with Dr. Ekuma Orji Uzor as the pioneer Medical Director.

    With the takeover, the Hospital made tremendous progress, and assumed all the responsibilities of being a Federal Health Institution. Dilapidated facilities were rehabilitated in 1999, broken down equipments were repaired and modern equipments acquired. Two additional modern theatres were constructed and a modern neo-natal Unit commissioned. An ultramodern Casualty and Children’s Emergency Unit and a Resident’s Hall Complex were put in place as well as an Intensive Therapy Unit.

    In 2007 Dr. Paul Olisaemeka Ezeonu, the erstwhile Head of Clinical services in the Medical Centre took up the mantle of leadership as the Chief Medical Director. Following this, developments in every department of the Hospital went upscale and has remained so.

    The Hospital now has Consultants in most Clinical Department and has been able to reactivate wards that were dormant because of death of Staff. Attendance has crept up steadily with outpatient load of about eight thousand monthly. Accreditation for the training of House officers have been granted.

    On its part, the Ebonyi State University Teaching Hospital was earlier established as a Specialist Hospital, Abakaliki, in the early 1980s. in 1996, following the creation of Ebonyi State and the take-off of the State University, the Specialist Hospital was converted to a Teaching Hospital to serve Ebonyi State University.

    On 7th December, 2011, President Goodluck Jonathan in fulfillment of his election promise to Ebonyi people upgraded the Federal Medical Centre to a Federal Teaching Hospital and directed that Ebonyi State University Teaching Hospital be absorbed into the new mega Teaching Hospital. The handover process was completed on 23rd December 2011 including the absorption of the staff of the defunct EBSUTH.

    The new Federal Teaching Hospital is indeed mega with retinue of Consultants in various specialties, 604 bed capacity distributed in various departments and a capacity for 250 House Officers. This foremost Health Institution which is one of its kind east of the Niger is continually improving in strength, structure and facility and has the establishment of a School of Nursing and Midwifery on its radar. The hospital complex of the School of Nursing and Midwifery billed to accommodate a total of 360. Student nurses is already completed.

    The new hospital complex is designed as a one stop complex to accommodate various units and departments such as children’s emergency units and wards, Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G) wards and units, administration department, consulting rooms and about sixty wards among others.

    New structures constructed include resident Doctors and House Officers’ quarters comprising several units of self contained accommodations, medical records blocks, labouratories, dental clinics and several other facilities with modern ancillary amenities to complement the structures. Other on-going infrastructional developments at the NEW FETHA arena included the ultra modern auditorium with five thousand sitting capacity, a lecture hall to accommodate two-hundred comfortably seated persons, a library and E-library structure and an ultra modern theatre.

    According to the Architect handling the project Mr. Eric Adama, part of the on-going construction include reclamation of some parts of the area to control the ecological challenges being experience at the site.
