Clinique Ambroise Paré
|Ambroise Paré Hospital|
The hospital is named after Ambroise Paré, the father of French surgery. It is privately owned, providing better care than the government hospitals Ignace Deen and Donka but not as high a standard as in Europe or North America.
In September 2009 a rally at a city stadium in protest against the military junta was violently broken up, with dozens of people being killed by security forces. Former prime ministers Cellou Dalein Diallo and Sidya Touré were injured, and taken to Ambroise Paré. However, soldiers removed them from the clinic and took them to the Alpha Yaya Diallo camp, the junta's headquarters.
