Important message about the COVID-19 Coronavirus

In an effort to care for all of our personnel, families, and mission around the world, EMI has been taking a number of steps in response to the progress of COVID-19.

Location-specific Crisis Management Teams are now in place to monitor COVID developments, inform, and care for EMI personnel. All official EMI travel (including project travel) has been cancelled or postponed and no new travel plans are being prepared until further notice. EMI’s worldwide offices are in varying states of closure with personnel working remotely or from home as they are able.

We continue to actively monitor the situation and will respond to new information affecting our worldwide ministry and teams. We view the COVID-19 Coronavirus an opportunity to live out the gospel and our faith in Jesus through the ministry of EMI.

Mid-late October, 2019

Opened in 2014, Tebow CURE Hospital treats the orthopedic needs of physically disabled children from its high-quality facility in Davao City. The hospital is part of CURE International, a network of specialized healthcare centers whose mission is ‘healing the sick and proclaiming the kingdom of God.’ In a nation where few have good access to medical care, they also provide training in advanced orthopedic techniques, whilst serving children with disabilities regardless of ethnic origin, religion or economic background.

Project Scope

The Tebow CURE Hospital, Philippines, is a 50-bed and rehabilitation hospital treating a wide range of orthopedic conditions including clubfoot, burn contractures and other acquired or congenital conditions such as spinal deformities, cleft lip and palate. Their campus consists of operating theatres, outpatient clinic, diagnostics and inpatient wards; alongside spaces for physiotherapy and education. Their desire is to reflect and proclaim the kingdom of God through the continued provision of excellent medical care and training.

EMI has been invited to assess and offer conceptual design for an accommodations hostel and departmental expansion on an adjacent site, along with rehabilitation of portions of the existing building campus. In addition to the new building expansion, the engineers on our team will offer HVAC evaluation and electrical recommendations for the existing campus.

EMI has previously worked with CURE hospitals in Niger, Uganda, Malawi and Ethiopia, and has seen firsthand their equal emphasis on physical and spiritual healing, as well as their desire to serve the poorest and the most marginalized. We look forward to working with the organization in a different location and helping them develop their vision for the future. Will you consider using your skills to serve this ministry?
