Ken Walker University Clinic for Medical Rehabilitation Opens in Tbilisi

The Ken Walker University Clinic for Medical Rehabilitation has been opened in Tbilisi, at Gudamakari St., 4.

The clinic has another branch in Batumi, the capital of Georgia's Adjara region, at Baku St., 8.

Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia, Chairman of Parliament Archil Talakvadze and US Ambassador to Georgia Kelly Degnan attended the opening ceremony.

The Ken Volker University Clinic is equipped with American and European high-technology medical facilities and provides multi-discipline rehabilitation services.

The clinic will simultaneously serve up to 200 children and 250 adults.

At the same time, due to the growing interest in the Ken Walker Clinic from the neighboring countries, additional funds will flow into the Georgian economy that will contribute to the development of medical tourism in Georgia.

"The Medical Rehabilitation Center for 200 children and 250 adults in Georgia, together with the infrastructure of the University Clinic, is a joint achievement," said Giorgi Gakharia, the Prime Minister of Georgia.

"I want to thank our international partners, the US government, for their support. Of course, this would not have been possible without systematic cooperation. Competence from the US Emory University, support from the Georgian business community, and support from the Tbilisi Medical University played a big role. All this has given us the result we have. This medical center will be fully focused on the functional independence of people with disabilities, and there is no greater goal than this to make people with disabilities worthy partners in our daily lives. This is the goal of both the state and each of our citizens. We must do everything to make this medical-rehabilitation center successful," the head of government said.
