The citation honouring Dr. Ameh reads: “AWLA is delighted to bestow the Distinguished Fellowship upon Dr. Juliana Oye Ameh, the esteemed CEO of Trust Hospital.”
It said the accolade was a testament to her exemplary contributions and steadfast commitment to excellence.
As the visionary leader of Trust Hospital, Dr. Ameh has played a pivotal role in shaping its success. Her strategic initiatives have not only elevated Trust Hospital’s prominence in the healthcare industry but have also set a benchmark for innovation and comprehensive patient care.
The statement said Dr. Ameh’s leadership, Trust Hospital, had emerged as a leader in innovative yet affordable healthcare.
