The first international standard hospital in The Gambia offering a range of specialist services not available currently in country.

The Horizons Clinic will  offer a range of specialist (secondary & tertiary) services currently not available in The Gambia. Patients needing specialist care either do not receive it or have to travel abroad, at significant cost, to receive the required care. The Horizons Clinic therefore will be complementary to the current healthcare provision available in The Gambia.

Horizons Clinic will, for the first time, give extant healthcare providers in The Gambia the option to refer patients needing specialist care to a high quality hospital locally. Horizons will also offer local healthcare workers opportunities for continuing professional development (CPD) to further strengthen the health system.

The 60 bed Horizons Clinic will feature a comprehensive outpatients department and diagnostic service and will be the first international standard hospital in The Gambia offering a range of specialist (secondary & tertiary) services. Patients needing specialist care currently, either do not receive it or have to travel abroad, at significant cost, to receive that care.
