Eko Atlantic

Eko Atlantic Medical Center

After a harrowing first-hand experience with the precarious state of Nigeria’s medical system, Nigerian expatriate Philip Njowusi embarked on a project that would not only provide a state-of-the-art medical facility in Lagos, the country’s most populated city, but also attract highly skilled medical practitioners to Nigeria. As the site of this innovative facility, Njowusi selected a location as extraordinary as the project itself: Eko Atlantic, a multibillion-dollar, environmentally sustainable, ultramodern planned development—to be constructed on four square miles of land reclaimed from the Atlantic Ocean. Situated south of Lagos and bordering Victoria Island, the city is expected to be an economic boon for the West African subregion, creating an oasis of opportunity for Lagos’s 17.5 million inhabitants.
