Key program components
R-Jolad Hospital was founded in 1982 by Dr. R. F. Oladipo as a single-physician primary clinic. Since then, it has grown into a self-sustainable, physician-owned, full-service hospital facility with a mission to serve the masses. In almost 3 decades, its client base has been steadily increasing and has propelled it from a company of 10 staff to one of over 200.
Seventeen full-time general physicians and 12 part-time consulting physicians serve upwards of 250 patients a day. A tiered fee structure that charges patients according to their ability to pay, sometimes as low as $1 for a visit, allows the hospital to attract individuals from a wide income spectrum.
