Dear Friend,

Welcome to St. Nicholas Hospital website.

We are one of the largest privately owned multi-specialist acute hospitals in Nigeria and we provide good primary, secondary and tertiary medical care from our four Lagos sites.

St. Nicholas Hospital (SNH) has been at the forefront of medical care since inception – March 1968, and still leads the way. We were the first private hospital to open a dialysis and kidney transplant centre and we have since conducted over 250 transplants in our kidney transplant unit, which is large percentage of all transplants in Sub-Saharan Africa. We were the first private hospital with an Oncology clinic which focuses on all cancers and complex blood diseases in adults. At St. Nicholas Hospital we foster, promote and practice ethical and evidence based medicine. Our dedicated staff are committed to compassionate delivery of professional services and outstanding hospitality.

At St. Nicholas Hospital, we continue to impart the best general practice we can; from more common-place ailments such as malaria to complex specialties such as (Nephrology) Kidney transplantation, (Cardiothoracic Surgery) Open Heart Surgery,  (Orthopaedic Surgery) Hip & Knee cap replacements and other quaternary care.  We remain the centre of choice for patient focused care. With your continuous patronage and partnership, we have expanded over the years in and around the Lagos metropolis.

Our four locations are;

  • St. Nicholas Hospital, Lagos Island, Lagos.
