The Governor explained that the state took time to identify competent partners that share its vision based on its competence and capacity.

In partnership with OMMA Healthcare, REES will plan, program, and design a highly efficient and functional U.S. standard hospital that simultaneously addresses the immediate healthcare needs of the people of Nigeria, and the entire Western Africa Region, while allowing for future growth.

REES Vice President and Healthcare Leader Stephen Lawson, AIA, LEED AP says "Our team is looking forward to applying our 34 years of healthcare planning to provide not only the people of Nigeria, but all of Western Africa, with a new state-of-the-art hospital that meets the Joint Commission International Standards. We are proud to be given such an important opportunity that will increase the level of healthcare delivered in the region."

"We are delighted to bring together this highly experienced team of healthcare professionals to develop a modern, state-of-the-art hospital in Calabar. This project helps to further strengthen the positive working relationship between Nigeria and the United States, while at the same time taking a major step forward in bringing high quality medical care to Nigerian families," says OMMA President Lynn Brown
