After arriving in Mogadishu, Somalia, a Hospitainer surgical hospital has been successfully installed within 5 days. Working closely with both the Medical Support Solutions (MSS) team & The Chelsea Village at the Mogadishu International Airport(MIA), we have launched this surgical hospital.
The facility includes a minor and major surgery room, sterilisation and recovery. The first surgery has been executed already, one week after the installation started. In total the project took less than 6 weeks from signing the contract to the first surgery. The structure is modular and can be extended at a later stage of the project.
It is located within The Chelsea Village, about 100m from the terminal building at MIA. MSS has been supporting clients in Somalia since 2010, providing a full scope of services ranging from primary care to damage control surgery.
