Davis Memorial Hospital was the first hospital to join AHI back in 1997. Currently led by Beverly Chan as administrator and Melchor Fabriga as medical director, the hospital serves the capital of Georgetown and beyond. A new five-operatory dental clinic has been constructed beside the hospital and now offers quality dental care by Drs. Anugerah and Torres. Though Guyana’s economy struggles at times, our hospital is stable and is well recognized throughout the country. It serves as the clinical base for around 20 community physicians.
