Redemption Pediatric Hospital
Can a hospital inspire trust in a public health system?
The Government of Liberia has initiated the five year Rebuilding Basic Health Services (RBHS), which includes increasing access to basic health services and strengthening the decentralized management of the current health system. Liberia’s long civil war left the health care service delivery system fragmented and damaged, and heavily dependent on international donors and NGOs. In only a few short years, Liberia has taken bold steps to transition from an emergency relief model of health service delivery to a functioning, decentralized health system. MASS is working with the Liberia Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW), RBHS, and a local subsidiary of John Snow International to design and construct a three story, 145- bed pediatric facility with nurses’ stations, bathrooms/showers, offices, and a play area.
