LHMSC will offer the following medical specialties: General Surgery, Gastroenterology, Gynecology, Otolaryngology and Internal Medicine/Cardiology. By year 2019, LHMSC will target providing the West Africa community with 24,000 specialty consultations annually, 5,500 ambulatory surgery center procedures annually, and 24,000 annual diagnostic imaging procedures.
