Global Hospitals Launches 125-bed Multi-specialty Unit in Tanzania, East Africa

Global Hospitals headquartered in Hyderabad, India has opened a 125-bed hospital in Zanzibar, a semi-autonomous region in Tanzania, East Africa.

The facility known as Tasakhtaa Hospitals is located at Stone Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Zanzibar. Tasakhtaa Hospitals has been opened in association with Turky's Group of Companies, one of the largest business groups of Zanzibar.


Salem Turky, chairman of Turky's Group of Companies, said he had conceived the project almost 17 years ago and approached various hospitals across the globe to transform the vision to reality.

Turky's wife was successfully operated for a complex cardiac surgery at Global Hospitals in Chennai, India. He approached Dr. Ravindranath, chairman of Global Hospitals to partner and help improve the healthcare in Africa.

"People of Zanzibar and Tanzania no longer have to go abroad for quality medical care. Tasakhtaa Hospital would offer world-class services at a fraction of the costs in Europe, the US and south Asian countries.

The Zanzibar facility will provide primary and secondary care services, with some level of tertiary care, and will focus on promoting health and well being of the citizens while preventing outbreak of diseases," said Dr. Ravindranath, announcing the hospital launch.

Tasakhtaa Hospitals is well equipped with five operation theatres, advanced intensive care units, laparoscopy unit, advanced laboratory services and high-end imaging modalities like 4D USG, 16-slice CT and 2D ECHO, endoscopy suites.
