In a bid to expand its services and to widen its human development endeavor, ACH had carefully crafted a relocation project and had approached relevant government organs for support – regarding land acquisition.
Addis Cardiac Hospital (ACH) has now reached a point where the issue of relocating it to a new and different location must be resolved urgently. It has become the only choice left to assure its continuation as a growing business and a relevant hospital.
ACH’s management has decided to implement the expansion program in three phases; phase one a near-term solution to relocate Addis Cardiac Hospital to a reasonably better facility in the shortest possible time, and in phase two to fully utilize the building spaces with expanding current services and new possible, affordable, and profitable new services. Important to consider these new services can embryo to the more complex and expanded service to be implemented in phase three. Phase three, to implement the original expansion program (ACH mission declaration when funded) in the future after land acquisition.
In line with this and recommendation by the board chairman, ACH’s management investigating different alternative solutions opted to hire a B+G+8 building under construction agreeing with the owners of the facility to customize the building partitioning and design to accommodate ACH’s wide range of hospital services and functional units. These include cardiovascular diagnostic and treatment functions, such as clinical laboratories, imaging, emergency rooms, interventional and surgical procedures (Angio/PCI, Valvotomy, Device implantations limited cardiac surgeries) hospitality functions, such as food service and housekeeping; and the fundamental inpatient care or bed-related function (Wards and ICU).
