A significant number of the company's 167 internationally trained Ethiopian Diaspora physician members attended the third annual physician member meeting in the nation's capital on June 29, 2013.
EADG's conservative objectives for the coming fiscal year include: increasing Ethiopian Diaspora physician membership to 300+, recruiting other types of healthcare professionals among the Ethiopian Diaspora, raising funds from social impact investors, solidifying key international partnerships, and establishing a 501(c)3 "not-for-profit" arm for purposes of providing education services and medical treatment to those who cannot afford to pay, obtaining grants, and engaging in public-private partnerships.
EADG has engaged top-level US firms in the fields of hospital architecture (Anthrotects Architects) and structural engineering (Keast-Hood) and has completed programming, master planning and initial design concepts for the hospital.
