Dr. (Mrs.) Rita Omoso Momoh

We are delighted to announce that Dr. (Mrs) Rita Omoso Momoh has been recognized as the Staff of the Month for January 2024. Dr. Momoh serves as a dedicated Consultant Ophthalmologist and specialist in Public Health Ophthalmology. Currently holding the position of Head of the Department of Ophthalmology, she passionately embraces her role with dexterity, efficiently steering the affairs of the department and ensuring seamless service delivery.

Dr. Momoh’s exceptional man-management skills are evident in her ability to effectively coordinate the diverse talents within her department, fostering collaboration from the most senior to the most junior staff members. As Public Health Ophthalmology specialist, she takes the lead in overseeing outreach programs, resulting in hundreds of cataract surgeries performed annually. This not only facilitates skill transfer to residents but also plays a pivotal role in successful post-graduate accreditation exercises, solidifying UBTH’s reputation as a preferred center for Ophthalmology residency training in Nigeria.

One of Dr. Momoh’s most noteworthy contributions is the acquisition of state-of-the-art surgical, laser, and investigative equipment for the department, achieved at no cost to the hospital. Leveraging her advocacy and grantsmanship skills developed during her training as an Ophthalmologist, including her time at the prestigious London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, she has secured these resources for the overall benefit of the public.

The Management of UBTH proudly celebrates Dr. Rita Omoso Momoh as the Staff of the Month for January 2024, acknowledging her outstanding contributions to the department and the hospital as a whole.
