World Health Day 2018: The Road to World-Class Healthcare in the Maldives

April 6, 2018

A month after the opening of much-anticipated Tree Top Hospital in Hulhumale’, the first state-of-the-art tertiary institution in the Maldives, the hospital has already marked more milestones towards the goal of providing advanced medical services to locals, expatriates and tourists.


On March 15, 2018, Tree Top Hospital successfully completed the first-ever cardiac procedure in the country, led by Dr. Pietro Gaetano, Interventional Cardiologist and assisted by a skilled team of cardiac nurses.


‘This is an important milestone for us in establishing Cardiology as a super specialty and elevating our inpatient care as a whole. We are committed to providing the best cardiac procedures so our patients get the care they need close to home” – Dr. Roland Fasol, Director of Medical Services and Cardiothoracic Surgeon at Tree Top Hospital.


The world-class healthcare institution has also introduced the Tree Top Hospital Direct Transfer Service, which provides complimentary ferry and van transfer services exclusively for guests with appointments.


These milestones go a long way towards the Hospital’s vision to provide international healthcare standards and high quality outcomes in the Maldives.

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 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.
