Setting the Standard of Surgical Care in West Africa
MISSION: TO PROVIDE WEST AFRICA WITH WORLD-CLASS SURGICAL CARE
In Nigeria, the scarcity of quality and available tertiary care affects the rich and poor alike. Those who do not have means suffer substandard care, while those of means must fly abroad. Nigerians spend $400 million annually for surgical services in India alone.
CHSC will change this reality by providing the highest quality surgical care in Nigeria and Greater West Africa. CHSC employs nurses and physicians who have trained at world-renowned health institutions and partners with these same institutions to provide specialized care.
An urgent care and ambulatory surgical center located in Abuja, Nigeria equipped with 2 examination rooms, a 3-bed postoperative recovery room, digital X-ray, laboratory, and fully equipped OR.
The Services section details the subspecialty procedures performed at this facility.
Only 5 percent of the available land has been used to build the surgery center, leaving much room for growth.
CHSC's second phase will expand on the surgical care offerings and/or supplement the existing surgery center with ancillary health and wellness services or housing.
CHSC has procured conceptual designs of a larger facility by the award-winning architectural firm Perkins + Will and will continue to work on building the brightest future.
