Today marks an important milestone in the expansion of healthcare in the Maldives: the opening of Tree Top Hospital in Hulhumalé, the first private, state-of-the-art tertiary institution in the country.
With up to 210 inpatient beds, a wide range of specialised services, accessible to locals, expatriates and tourists, the medical center is benchmarked to international quality standards and is a major step toward providing quality healthcare to those who need it.
Patients will be able to receive advanced healthcare services locally, which is set to significantly reduce the amount and costs of outbound travels to neighboring countries of Sri Lanka, India and Thailand for treatments, while also increasing the opportunity for medical tourism in the Maldives.
“After three or four years, we will be all set to court medical tourists,” – Ahmed Saleem, Tree Top Hospital Shareholder.
The world-class facilities include Oncology & Dialysis Centers, an Intensive Care Unit, departments for Radiology, Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy, and various laboratories fitted with modern machinery. The variety of services provided includes Accident and Emergency care, Open Heart Surgery led by Dr. Roland Fasol, Neurology, Pediatrics and Psychology, as well as General Practice.
The 6-story Tree Top Residences developed next to the hospital offers suites for patients and visiting families, restaurants, retail stores and accommodation for staff.
Management of Tree Top Hospital has been awarded to Ramsay Sime Darby Health Care, a joint venture between Australia-based Ramsay Health Care and Malaysia-based Sime Darby Healthcare.
Behind this significant initiative are the owners of Crown and Champa Resorts, whom we congratulate on the opening, and wish Tree Top Hospital a successful operation for many years to come!
