The opening of the Hassan Ibrahim Tier of Excellence in Cardiovascular Care (HITECC) and the new theatre complex was a big dream come true for ADK Hospital. It is not only a dream come true but also a comforting news for Maldivians to know that if they need such care or if they ever come in need of such care, they have access to the highest quality of standards available in the region.
