FOCOS is sustained by donations and sponsorships through fundraising in the USA and Ghana and has been able to realize close to Twenty Million United States Dollars ($20,000,000.00) from over 1,200 donors since its inception. FOCOS has been able to use the funds to support patients and the construction of the current FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital, here in Accra, Ghana.
The 70bed FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital, commissioned in 2012, is fully accredited to operate both inpatient and outpatient departments. Some facilities on campus include state of the art Radiology, Laboratory and Physiotherapy departments and the services offered include Emergency, Ambulance, Pharmacy, Cafeteria and Laundry services. The hospital is also preparing towards accreditation by the Joint Commission International (JCI), the internationally recognized body for the accreditation of hospitals. A JCI accredited hospital stands for optimal quality of care.
Since its establishment in 1998, FOCOS has seen over 55,000 patients in clinic visits and conducted close to 3,000 complex spine, joint replacement and other surgeries on patients needing treatment for various musculoskeletal diseases. These conditions include various forms of spinal disorders, joint disorders and other neurological conditions affecting the spine, bone, nerves, muscle and joints.
FOCOS has hosted over 500 international volunteers from all over the world including surgeons, nurses and physical therapists. We at FOCOS take this opportunity to thank all patients, volunteers, local medical partners, donors, sponsors and all others who have contributed in any way to help make the FOCOS story a success.
