Amin General Hospital, one of the pioneer hospitals in Ethiopia, has inaugurated its newly built hospital as part of its expansion project in the nation. The new facility is to accommodate its temporary rental site, which was located near the Ethiopian Airlines Airport cargo terminal area that is set to close at the end of the month.
The new location located in Tor Hailoch, on Coca Cola Avenue, is to have over 80 beds inside its seven-floor building and for the first time, will have full dental service and will try to slowdown the medical tourism that has been the norm for many residents.
“Ethiopia remains a nation whose medical industry remains, for the most part, untouched and with much potential. The Health Ministry remains open to see and help it grow and that an exceptional facility as Amin Hospital becomes the norm, not the exception,” Amir Aman, Ethiopia’s Minister of Health said at the inauguration held on last Saturday. “The Ministry of Health believes that it is impossible to provide quality health care services, especially tertiary care, without the collaboration of private sectors.”
