Our expansion from outpatient clinic to hospital represents a huge milestone in our evolving vision and reflects our commitment to “growing” a medical facility that becomes an integral and vital part of the community and region — a medical service that is dynamic and responsive to patient needs.
The FAME hospital has two 12-bed wards, an emergency room, two operating rooms and a recovery room. Upon opening the first 12-bed ward and transitioning to 24/7 care in late 2012, we quickly learned that patients far sicker than we ever imagined would arrive at our new hospital — individuals who would be cared for in Intensive Care Units in other parts of the world. That being the reality, our doctors and nurses found themselves treating the familiar and the rare, the straightforward and more complex — everything from severe pneumonia and gastrointestinal infections to complications stemming from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, rare skin infections, and neurological anomalies. Supporting our local team, volunteer medical professionals from overseas medical communities have become an increasingly integral part of our program sharing their expertise in specialty areas both on site and via an online "telemedicine" consultation program.
