King Faisal Hospital in Kigali provides 24-hour assistance with physicians and nurses on duty in their emergency room. It has surgical facilities, digital x-ray, CT, EKO, fluoroscopy machines and adult and neonatal intensive care units. It has a computerized laboratory, specialist-run radiology department and a 24-hour pharmacy. Specialists can provide dialysis, neurosurgery, oncology, urology, endocrinology, anesthesia, and chemotherapy. Though King Faisal Hospital is investing heavily in new equipment, as a general rule, hospitals, laboratories and x-ray facilities in Kigali are not as modern or as well-equipped as those in the United States. It is for these reasons that serious surgical cases are usually medically evacuated from Kigali to Nairobi or Pretoria. MRIs are normally done in Nairobi. King Faisal has a 150-bed capacity ambulance service but can accommodate more in the event of a disaster with assistance from the Red Cross and Rwandan military. Private, self-contained rooms with individual menus, TV and refrigerators are available.
