Foundation of Orthopaedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS) was established as a not –for-profit organization to provide comprehensive, orthopaedic care to underserved populations throughout Africa. FOCOS Founder, Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei, and teams of medical volunteers travel to West Africa, Ghana in particular, several times each year to evaluate patients and perform surgeries. For years, FOCOS volunteers coordinated with local hospitals to provide services to patients, but constant barriers led to the development of a permanent facility of its own.
The Hospital is a subsidiary of the Foundation of Orthopaedics and Complex Spine (FOCOS), a non-profit organization established in 1998 by Dr. Oheneba Boachie-Adjei and as an auxiliary of the foundation, FOCOS Hospital is sustained by donations, sponsorships and revenue generated internally through its outpatient and surgical operations.
With its ultra- modern state of the art equipment and facilities, and well-trained, experienced medical staff, FOCOS hospital can hold its own as an equivalent of the better healthcare Ghanaians. Our Hospital is situated at Pantang in Accra, the capital city of Ghana, with a 50 bed ward, the 50 bed, state of the art facility has been recognized as one of the most premiere of its kind in all of Africa and creating a standard for quality patient care.
