About Us

Lily Hospitals is one of Nigeria’s growing networks of private healthcare institutions with an outstanding reputation for delivering excellent clinical services.

Since our inception under the current management (1998), we have remained at the forefront of providing and delivering quality patient-centered, responsive and technology-driven care across various locations in Nigeria (Warri, Benin and Lagos) to both citizens and foreign nationals. We showcase our extraordinary capabilities in each hub, alongside our internship and residency offerings for resident doctors and interns.

We were the first private hospital in Nigeria to be accredited with the NIS ISO 9001:2015 Certification and one of seven hospitals in Nigeria to have internationally recognized accreditation (COHSASA 2018). In pursuit of our corporate mission, we have also been accredited with ISO 14001:2015.

We are also privileged to be awarded the best private healthcare service provider in Nigeria 2019 and 2022 (Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Awards).

We have continued to push the boundaries with our 40-bed multi specialist center opening soon at Ughelli and the rollout of more affordable care through Lily Primecare outpatient clinics in Warri and its surroundings.
