On a stunning, remote mountaintop in northern Rwanda, scores of government leaders, PIH staff, friends and supporters, and community health workers looked on as Butaro Hospital opened its doors to the world. This 150-bed, world-class teaching hospital features two operating theatres, an intensive care unit, a dedicated neonatal unit, and state-of-the-art medical equipment. Its innovative design employs natural ventilation techniques to prevent the transmission of dangerous diseases, such as tuberculosis and H1N1 influenza, while creating a tranquil, dignified environment.
