Access Bank has been named the most healthcare SME-friendly bank at the Nigerian Healthcare Excellence Award (NHEA) 2019.

The bank got the prize at the award ceremony, which held at Eko Hotel & Suites in Lagos.

At the award ceremony held recently at Eko Hotels & Suites, Access Bank was recognized for the fourth time by the NHEA consecutively after winning the most healthcare friendly bank award in 2016 and 2017 and as the Outstanding CSR health project of the year in 2018.

The NHEA is an initiative of the Global Health Project and Resources in partnership with Anadach group.

The annual award ceremony is organised to recognise and commend institutions that have made laudable contributions towards the growth and development of the healthcare sector in Nigeria.

Commenting on the award, Omobolanle Victor-Laniyan, head of sustainability at Access Bank said: “We are extremely honoured to be receiving this award. On behalf of the bank, we say, thank you and we are grateful for this recognition.”

“Access Bank has an unwavering commitment to significantly improve the health sector in Nigeria. Therefore, as a bank, we have studied the health sector and identified inadequate financing as a causal factor for the poor healthcare system in Nigeria.”

This discovery, she said, encouraged the bank to create products that can solve the financing problems of healthcare SMEs.

Ayodele Oloyede, head of emerging businesses at the bank said SMEs have been identified as one of the key drivers of economic growth through their contribution to employment and wealth creation.

“We also know that good healthcare is important to productivity and that is why Access Bank supports Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises as part of its measures to help boost the Nigerian economy.”
