Dr. & Mrs George Green arrived Ogbomoso on March 18, 1907 where they started the Ogbomoso Baptist Hospital now "Bowen Teaching Hospital".

George was born July 26, 1872 in London, relocated to Montreal, Canada in 1894 and lived briefly in Cleveland, Ohio. On November 17, 1906, the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention appointed him the first medical missionary to Africa.

He married Lydia Barnes Williams on January 9, 1907 and together they spent 37 years in Nigeria.

Green was installed Ba'asegun of Ogbomoso and died in 1962 at the age of 90.

What they lay down is still serving the people of Ogbomoso and other cities till date.
