Hospital description

The Maison Medicale de Wassadou (Home Medical Foundation Pierre Fabre Wassadou) is located in the region of Tambacounda, eastern Senegal. The clinic opened in 2005 with a ceremony attended by the Senegal president. Half of the funding for the clinic was provided by the Pierre Fabre Wassadou. The local population is arranged in a series of dispersed settlements in the bush, which presents great difficulties for effective medical attention.

The clinic is classed as small bush hospital, but it is staffed by a doctor, which has provided much needed support to the local environment and population. When it initially opened, the clinic was a new type of venture that combined public health functions with the responsibilities of public service. The Maison Médicale de la Fondation Pierre Fabre provides a range of service in 55 buildings, all of which use local architecture and traditional materials in their construction. The building include three pavilions for medical care, obstetrics and gynecology and surgical specialties. It also has two waiting rooms, which house patients for consultations. There is also space for families who need to remain in the hospital locale. Serious cases are transferred to the regional hospital in Tambacounda.

Medical specialists, pharmacists, biologists, dentists may also go to the hospital as part of a sabatical.
