Intro to JFKMC

“JFK” is known throughout Liberia as the nation’s largest referral hospital, located in the capital city, Monrovia.  Founded in 1972, the Medical Center is the only tertiary care institution in the country and is a major teaching hospital.  Although severely damaged during the Liberian Civil War, it has been largely rehabilitated and continues to improve is capabilities and grow its capacity.

The Medical Center is comprised of (from left to right above) the JFK Memorial Hospital, the Liberian-Japanese Friendship Maternity Hospital, the Tubman National Institute of Medical Arts (a nursing and paramedical school), and the Catherine Mills Psychiatric Center, which was completely destroyed during the war.
