Children's Cancer Hospital Egypt (CCHE) 57357 Expansion

American architectural design firm Jonathan Bailey was selected by ECN and CCHE from a pool of many proposals to design the expansion, which is expected to be underway within the coming year. ECN has offered to fund $300,000 of the design, which will total $12 million in costs. The design will include a bed tower, a radiology center, a proton therapy wing, a health sciences academy and a research institute.
We are pleased to announce this partnership as a special collaboration which will further facilitate the exchange between the US and Egypt, benefiting both countries on health and socio-economic levels.
The new expansion will include:
240 new beds. which will allow CCHE to treat the majority of incoming patients
A LEED green building
An eight-story research center
A new healthcare science academy for nursing, healthcare administration,
technicians, social workers, hospitality and facility management
A proton therapy center for the safest and most advanced treatment options as well as new revenue from outlying hospitals
A guest house that will accommodate 300 families (62% patie nts are coming from outside Cairo
150 Hospice care beds for patients at both Hospital 57357 and National Cancer Institute
A large part of our fundraising is directed towards this initiative.

Population(s) Served

ECN has just completed the negotiations for a joint fellowship program between Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Children’s Cancer Hospital. ECN has been instrumental in developing the partnership between these institutions. ECN also established a medical advisory board to support the long-term sustainability of the curriculum. Members of this board include physicians from prominent institutions, namely Johns Hopkins, Dana-Farber, Children’s Hospital Boston, Texas Children’s and Iowa Children’s.
This combined fellowship/training program is designed to improve the pediatric oncology survival rates and outcomes within Egypt, the Middle East and North Africa, while simultaneously allowing for a mutual exchange of information, knowledge and experience for both doctors from the region and also from the United States.
 
The program consists of two tracks, the first of which is a 3-year fellowship in general pediatric oncology, and the second of which is a 12-month option focusing on select subspecialties. The fellowship will be mostly based at Children’s Cancer Hospital Egypt 57357 in Cairo and will encompass clinical assignments, mentoring, research and live telemedicine lectures. Portions of the fellowship will also be conducted at DFCHCC in Boston, MA, USA. The course curriculum will be set according to the American Academy of Pediatrics with a primary focus on pediatric malignancies. Throughout the program DFCHCC physicians and physicians from other American institutions will be invited to Cairo to lecture the fellows and CCHE staff, as well as train CCHE staff in mentoring and evaluation skills.
The program proposes to have 6 pediatric oncology fellows in a single year, with a total cost per fellow over the three years being $264,000. 2 new fellows will be added every year for the first 3 years, with two graduating every year starting in year 3 and beyond. It will cost $1.6M to graduate 6 fellows over a period of five years. In order to support this program, ECN will need to raise nearly $500k over the next 3 years, starting with $134k in 2012.
ECN is currently in the process of seeking funding sources for this exciting opportunity, which we expect to have off the ground by this time next year.

Population(s) Served

In order for CCHE to provide top care, it must recruit top physicians and professions and stay on the cutting edge. In order to do these things, it must have a robust research program. Part of ensuring that CCHE lives up to these standards is educational sponsorship for its distinguished professionals.
 
ECN provides educational sponsorship for distinguished and promising Egyptian doctors and medical professionals so that they may attend various educational conferences and training programs abroad. This is a component of our ongoing effort to aid staff at CCHE and other healthcare institutions in Egypt in enhancing their knowledge, thereby improving the quality of treatment available at these medical institutions. Therefore, patient survival rates also are expected to improve.

Population(s) Served

Through this program we attempt to fund medical infrastructure and medical supply transfers. Already in our repertoire is the urgent acquisition and transfer of  a six-month supply of mercaptopurine for CCHE 57357 and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in the spring of 2012 during an Egyptian national shortage of this drug. The drug is vital to the patients suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common malignancy diagnosed in children.
 
Any interruption in the intake of this drug would have endangered the patient’s treatment plan and any chance for cure. When ECN received the distress call from Hospital 57357, a solidarity chain immediately kicked into action, linking Egyptian-American pharmacist Mohamad Elaadma with our board members, the U.S. Egyptian Embassy and the Consulate in New York.
 
ECN has also committed to sponsoring a $1.7 million outpatient clinic for Egypt's National Cancer Institute.
 
Lastly, ECN facilitates naming opportunities for those interested in creating legacy gifts of rooms, departments or equipment at CCHE 57357 and at the new NCI outpatient clinic.
