Meet the Nigerian-American Doctor who is Building the Largest Medical Research Hub in Africa

The ongoing Medical Research Centre at Umuchukwu community in Orumba South Local Government, Anambra State, Nigeria would soon turn the obscure locality to a city of knowledge. On completion of the 15-storey building project, funded solely by Dr Godwin Maduka, the Chief Executive Officer and Medical Director of the Las Vegas Pain Institute and Medical Centre, the largest pain treatment centre in Nevada, USA, the rural community will become the hub of medical research in the country and African continent.

Dr Maduka, an adjunct clinical Professor of Anesthesiology, Pain Management and Surgery, Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Nevada, USA, tasted poverty during his childhood after the death of his father. He struggled through high school on the meagre income provided by his mother, a widow.  Like a child destined to rule, he conquered poverty by dint of hardwork, and bagged three doctorate degrees from Havard University.
The high-rise building, which will serve as the Medical Research Centre, the first of its kind in the country, was at 80 per cent completion stage when Campus Sun visited Umuchukwu community recently. A close aide to Dr Maduka said the centre would be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities in medical science, to assist students in clinical training, as well as provide quality resource materials for lecturers and researchers.

When interviewed, Maduka explained his philanthropic gesture, saying, “I embarked on all these to save my people from my ugly experience while growing up. I grew up in a home that when it rained, it rained more inside the house. ‘’Wealth would be meaningless if it cannot be used to better the lives of the people around the custodian. ‘’The wealthy must provide jobs for the youths; build skills acquisition centres for willing adults, market stalls for men and women, if society must be secure,” he said.

“I am living the American dream and I’m doing all I can through philanthropy to help the people where I came from live a better life. It is so small that most everybody there is either related by blood or marriage,” Dr. Godwin Maduka told Las Vegas review Journal at his Henderson branch office.

According Clark County records, Maduka bought seven residential properties in Nevada for more than $7 million and spent nearly $4 million on the two buildings that house the Las Vegas Pain Institute, where he employs 80 people.
