Job Opportunity:  Hospital Administration Manager (1)

Background:

LEADERS IN HEALTH SERVICES – LHS Ltd is an incorporated company, registered with the Rwanda Development Board. Its main objectives is to improve surgical care delivery in Rwanda by augmenting the Rwandan Health Sector with much needed ambulatory and elective surgical services through EJO HEZA SURGICAL CENTRE, a Specialized Hospital for General Surgery, Trauma – Orthopedics, Pediatric Surgery, ENT surgery, Urology, Cleft Surgery and Neurosurgery.

Principal place of business:   

  • LEADERS IN HEALTH SERVICES / EJO HEZA SURGICAL CENTRE,
  • KIGALI CITY, DISTRICT OF GASABO, SECTOR OF REMERA, CELL OF RUKIRI 1,
  • KG 636 ST 3
  • O. Box 2416 Kigali

Despite our government’s major achievements within the health sector, the need for surgical services is still huge. University Hospitals, where most of the specialist surgeons work, must focus most of their efforts managing the most acutely unwell patients and patients with other complicated surgical conditions. The less acute and less complicated surgical conditions that are normally managed on elective basis have less and less room in the referral hospitals. They are usually scheduled and the waiting time is more or less 6 months. We are often finding that the long waiting times can result in the simple case becoming emergency or complicated – for instance, the simple inguinal hernia that progresses to a strangulated hernia. These cases then further impact the compound situation at the referral hospitals.

Ejo Heza Surgical Centre offers an opportunity for surgical treatment to the above mentioned patients through ambulatory surgical services with extended recovery area for up to 72 hours.

Ejo Heza Surgical Centre was opened to the public in July 2016 with a focus on the care of elective surgical conditions in the areas of General Surgery, Cleft Surgery and Trauma – orthopedics.

Since November 2019 Ejo Heza surgical centre was granted by the Ministry of Health the license to include other surgical specialties such as Urology, Neurosurgery, Pediatric Surgery and ENT Surgery.

In addition to be fully equipped with modern surgical and diagnostic equipment, Ejo Heza Surgical Centre employs highly qualified health care professionals in order to meet the needs of the patients.
