About Niger Delta Teaching Hospital, Okolobiri, Bayelsa State

The hospital was established in 1982 as a cottage hospital located at Okolobiri. Okolobiri is a community in Gbarain-Ekpetiama in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
The cottage hospital was built by the then Old Rivers State Government of Chief Melford Okilo’s Administration. The conception and implementation of the cottage hospital brought the opportunity to the people in that locality to access medical care. It remained a cottage hospital until the creation of Bayelsa State in 1996 by General Sani Abacha’s led Administration.
 
As a State, it became imperative to upgrade the cottage hospital into a General Hospital as part of the states’ developmental agenda.
 
The upgrading was implemented by the military administrator, Group Captain Phillip Ayeni in 1996. With the establishment of the Niger Delta University and the College of Health Sciences in Bayelsa State, there was the urgent need to train medical students, house officers, nurses and students from other paramedical disciplines.
 
It is in this light that the Niger Delta University Teaching Hospital was established in October 2007 by upgrading the General Hospital to the status of a Teaching Hospital.
