Our expansion from outpatient clinic to hospital in 2012 represents a huge milestone in our evolving vision & reflects our commitment to “growing” a medical facility that becomes an integral and vital part of the community & region — a medical service that is dynamic & responsive to patient needs.
The FAME hospital has a 14-bed inpatient ward, a 10-bed maternity ward, two delivery rooms, an emergency room, night clinic, two operating rooms, & a recovery room. Upon opening the first ward & 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 & nurses found themselves treating the familiar & the rare, the straightforward & more complex — everything from severe pneumonia & gastrointestinal infections to complications stemming from diabetes, cardiovascular disease, rare skin infections, & neurological anomalies. In 2017, we had 924 patients admitted to our general ward. As our surgical program enhances, our inpatient ward has also become a space for those patients.
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 & via an online "telemedicine" consultation program.
