Abstract: Certain types of building materials are known to be radioactive. Exposure to indoor ionizing radiation like exposure to any other type of ionizing radiation results in critical health challenges. An evaluation of the background ionizing radiation profile Plateau State Specialist Hospital, and their immediate neighbourhood were carried out. These hospitals also harbour a number of active radiation sources. The radiation levels were measure GS2 with serial number A20). The radiation levels were: 2.063 mSv/yr for Skane Radiodiagnositic Centre indoor result and outdoor result was 1.848mSv/yr. For outdoor result was 2.002mSv/y
