Family Legacy has come to a place where the need and available resources make it possible for us to pursue the dream of accessible, improved, quality health care through the establishment of a medical center.
In order to provide a place to address the most severe needs and provide care for the ongoing health of the children to whom Family Legacy has been entrusted, we envision the River of Life Medical Center- a freestanding children’s hospital on the Tree of Life campus—where the love of God emanates and children receive top-tier medical care.
The health center will incorporate healthy partnerships through local resources (e.g., Lusaka District Health Management Team, individual Zambian-based medical and surgical staff, reference laboratories for send-out testing) as well as leverage the benefit of volunteers coming to provide specific, often subspecialty, medical and surgical services. In order for this to be most successful, the hospital facilities will employ modern equipment, at the same high standards as what is currently being used in the United States.
We anticipate an average of 50-75 inpatients bed-days and over 1,800 outpatient visits per month during the first year. As soon as we open, we will have over 10,000 children that can be treated at the River of Life Medical Center.
Planned hospital departments will include outpatient care, for preventative services and treatment of routine acute and chronic pediatric conditions, emergency and trauma care, a full surgical suite supporting two operating rooms and inpatient facilities including inpatient suits, intensive care, physical therapy and rehab, laboratory, radiology and pharmacy.
Help us build the River of Life Medical Center.
