The American Hospital Tbilisi was founded with the support of the United States International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) and in conformity with Georgian state interests. The project is the result of a $ 50 million foreign direct investment implemented based on the agreement between the United States and Georgia. The stakeholders are the Georgian Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development, the US Agency for International Development Finance Corporation, together with a number of medical institutions interested in medical and scientific research.
According to agreement reached between 2011 and 2015, the Georgian Government sold the state-owned real estate (former medical institutions) located at 58 Uznadze / 17 Chkheidze, in the center of Tbilisi. By this action, Georgia expressed its desire and interest in establishing a new, international standardized hospital in Georgia which will be second to none in the region of Caucasus. One of the conditions for this agreement obliged Georgian state to invest at least 18 million USD.
American Hospital Tbilisi has 183 beds (wards), a total area of 25000 sqm, providing services in accordance with international standards. The hospital operates on a modern governance model that emphasizes patient-centered, high-quality medical care. This truly reflects the ambition of AHT to set a new landmark on the map of Georgian medical services. This will establish Georgia’s first global ranked hospital, which will be fully accredited by Joint Commission International.
