American Medical Center

American Medical Center (AMC) opened its doors to the public on October 8, 2012. The center was founded by a visionary couple, Dr. Akeza Teame and his wife Mrs. Melat Abate. The couple returned to Ethiopia from the US after completing their studies. The name AMC was deliberately chosen to highlight the appreciation Melat and Dr. Akeza have for the quality, values and sense of professionalism they expereinced during their education, training and stay in the US. The center was established with a plan to address the growing demand for a high-end clinic that provides Western-standard healthcare services in a friendly, non-intimidating and patient-centered setting. The founders hope to instill similar professional caliber and ethical standards at AMC.

In January of 2018, AMC expanded its scope of services to meet the needs of its clients and started a 24 hrs/7 days a week inpatient admission services for both pediatrics and adult patients at AMC.
