Over the past 15 years, FSS has been providing complex lifesaving and life-changing surgeries across Africa. For the lucky few who benefit from our expertise, our surgeries have been transformative. To reach more patients and to make our impact timely and sustainable, we are building a specialty surgical training hospital in Accra, Ghana, where African surgeons will train to provide complex surgical care. The surgeons we train will return to their various countries and provide complex surgical care while training the next generation of surgeons.
Our surgical specialty hospital, will offer a fresh approach to delivering health care in Africa in a way that puts patients and their families first while reinforcing our commitment to providing exceptional care and training. Our hospital is a patient-centered healing environment, culturally sensitive, sustainable in design, functionally efficient, aesthetically pleasing while using the latest technology to improve quality and reduce costs.
The hospital will be located in Accra, Ghana and serve as a center where surgeons and nurses from the region can be trained while providing highly specialized surgical care. The need for this facility is tremendous.
The first module will have 32 beds, 4 operating rooms, 10 outpatient consultation rooms and a training center. Modular architectural design makes future expansion feasible. Surgical specialties to be covered will include: Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Neurosurgery, Head and Neck Surgery and Urology. The hospital will be staffed by experts from the United States, Europe, Latin America and Africa.
Training surgeons locally in the region by world experts in a well-equipped facility is the way to sustainably improve complex surgical care delivery in Africa. This project will impact so many lives now and in the future. We have commitment from surgeons who work in outstanding institutions around the world and are willing to volunteer their time to help train and assist local surgeons at this hospital. Now we need your support to build the hospital.
