In the NewsEdit

The hospital was temporarily closed in August 2014 as was several medical centers where such cases where reported, after it was alleged that one of its patients, a doctor named Ikechukwu Enemuo, had died from Ebola. Reports revealed that Enemuo had contracted the virus while attending to an Ebola-infected ECOWAS staff who flew into Port Harcourt from Lagos for treatment in an unnamed hotel. The diplomat, however, recovered after being treated. Unfortunately, Mr. Ikechukwu Enemuo died after contact with the infected diplomat. He was rushed to GoodHeart Specialist Hospital where the medical director promptly alerted government agencies of the situation. He would later die of the disease.[3]
