Our Hospital started operating on November 23rd, 2000 as the Medical Imaging Centre in B'Kara, which at the time was a purely radiological facility providing all imaging modalities to neighbouring clinics and general practices.
In Feb 2004, the Medical Imaging Centre moved to its present new premises in Kan K Pirotta Street, B'Kara, which allowed for expansion of the radiological facilities while providing space for consultant clinics in other specialties. In June 2006, the Medical Imaging Centre acquired Klinika Vella, a surgical facility located in Zebbug, Malta, which was transferred into a new wing of the Medical Imaging Centre that included a new operating suite and inpatient treatment facilities. In April 2007, the Medical Imaging Centre changed its name to DaVinci Hospital, as the former name was no longer indicative of our activity. DaVinci Hospital now included Departments of Radiology, General Surgery, Gastrointestinal Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Orthopaedics, Gynaecology, ENT, Plastic Surgery, General Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Pulmonary Medicine, Paediatrics, Neurology and General Practitioner Services, while providing Inpatient and Outpatient Physiotherapy Services in our new Rehabilitation Centre. A state-of-the-art Diagnostic Laboratory is also available on site to support all other departments.
We are presently refurbishing our Operating Room and opening a second operating room that will include a new laminar flow system to allow us to perform certain orthopaedic surgical procedures, which were previously not possible. The new operating room will also provide digital X-ray fluoroscopy that will allow us to perform interventional radiology and pain treatment procedures. We will be extending our premises to include a new recovery area, a new surgical ward, an MRI suite and a cardiac lab on the first floor.
In-house parking facilities are available for all our clients at no extra cost, which is a great benefit as outdoor parking is difficult to find in the area.
