About University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH) Ituku/Ozalla Enugu

The University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH) Ituku/Ozalla Enugu, has come a long way.  The Hospital began early in the 20th century as a standard general Hospital for Africans built by the colonial administrators.  It later metamorphosed into a general hospital on the attainment of Nigeria’s independence in the 1960’s.
However, at the end of the Nigerian civil war in 1970, the then government of East Central State transformed it into a Specialist Hospital with effect from July 1, 1970.

At this time, the hospital had a total of 50 doctors, 10 wards, and 300 beds and a chest bay of 60 beds.  There are also 350 nurses working in the Hospital.  Today, the situation has changed dramatically.  The bed capacity of the hospital in the permanent site is over 500 beds and the number of its personnel (both professional and non – professional) has increased tremendously. 

By decree number 23 of 1974, the Federal Military Government took over the hospital, but left the management in the hands of the Council of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka.
The University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital became in dependent in July 1976 with the appointment of autonomous Management Board.
