LAUTECH Teaching Hospital Changes Name To UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital
The government of Osun state has announced that Osun State University is now in full control of College of Health Sciences and the former LAUTECH Teaching Hospital in Osogbo.
They have also announced the immediate renaming of LAUTECH to Teaching Hospital to UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital (UNIOSUNTH), Osogbo. According to Commissioner of Education, Folorunsho Oladoyin said that, “The Osun State Government has approved the renaming of former LAUTECH Teaching Hospital as UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital (UNIOSUNTH), Osogbo with immediate effect.”
This transition happened shortly after the split-up of the joint ownership of Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) by Oyo State and Osun State, after signing a Memorandum of Understanding to effect a new management structure of the institution.
The National Universities Commission (NUC) handed over ownership of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, to the Oyo State Government while the Osun state Government took over the College of Health Sciences in Osogbo and the LAUTECH Teaching Hospital.
