For his part, Dr. Beaver Tamesis, AHMC President and CEO, said medical innovations are all part and parcel of the hospital’s efforts to give patients the care that they truly deserve.


“Innovation is not just about coming up with new services. It is about how we deliver our promise to the people that we serve. What we do must be aligned towards bringing the best service to our patients because that is what they deserve. That should be our guiding principle—what’s the best interest for our patients,” Dr. Tamesis said.
