Where your health matters most!

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, who returned from the US after completing their studies. The name AMC was deliberately chosen to highlight our appreciation for the quality, values and sense of professionalism we appreciated during our education, training and stay in the US.The center was established with the 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 standard 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 1 Sunshine branch. In addition, AMC opened a 2nd outpatient clinic in January 2018 in the Bole area that specializes in internal medicine and pediatrics which has a well equipped laboratory and diagnostic services.
