The doors of the Medical Center officially opened on October 16, 2006 with 22 staff seeing 60 out-patients that first day. By December the x-ray department, in-patient clinical services, an operating theater and an emergency department were in fully functioning.
One year later, the Medical Center has 130 employees, consults with 60 patients daily and offers a functioning emergency room 24/7, operating room, wards, labs, x-ray services, opthamology services and a pharmacy.
As a health care facility offering round-the-clock services, it has identified new opportunties for people to serve with them in short-term and long-term capacities. There is a growing need for specialized physicians, critical care equipment and training and related services for their staff. See our video about the Needs in Angola.
