Lagoon Hospital was first established in 1986 with Lagoon Hospital Apapa, now the flagship hospital, followed by Lagoon Hospital Ikeja and Lagoon Hospital Victoria Island. The Group has since added 2 new locations: Lagoon Clinics in Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja and Lagoon Specialist Suites in Victoria Island bringing a total of 5 locations to date. Lagoon Hospitals pioneer advanced medical care in Nigeria and are committed to the highest standards of professionalism and service. The hospitals are equipped to perform all forms of surgical procedures including those that are only possible at very few specialised hospitals in the United Kingdom and USA and they continue to invest in high quality specialty services.
Lagoon Hospitals is driven by a single thrust, to provide the best standards of patient care. It is this passion that has led to the development of unique specialties across medical disciplines, within the Lagoon Hospitals Group. These specialties include orthopedics & Trauma, General Surgery, Critical Care, Medical & Surgical Oncology, Urology, Cardiology, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Pediatrics.
Lagoon Hospitals are part of the Hygeia group, Nigeria's foremost private integrated healthcare services provider, which also has Hygeia Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO), Hygeia Community Health Care and Hygeia Foundation within the group.

Electronic Medical Records (EMR)
In July, 2013, Lagoon Hospitals invested in Electronic Medical Records (EMR). With this investment, we now deliver a more improved medical service to all of our clients and patients. Some of the benefits of the EMR are :
Easy access to patient records irrespective of where the patient is accessing care.
Reduced waiting time (time saved from retrieval of files, lab results, X-rays)
Legibility of handwriting, reducing errors in orders
Better management of the appointment system
Reduction in drug errors
More space in the hospital, which means a more conducive environment when visiting
We recently just acquired Gold Gross Hospitals.
