Seventh-Day Adventist Cooper Hospital (LR)

A 40-bed general hospital owned and operated by the West African Union Mission in Liberia, West Africa. It was purchased from the family of the late Dr. H. Nehemiah Cooper on Sept. 7, 1986, and is located in the heart of Monrovia. In 1989 civil war broke out in Liberia, forcing the hospital to cease its services for almost three years. The building was looted and left in a poor condition. Efforts to rehabilitate the hospital were made by ADRA /AID, and a cash donation from a friend in Sweden made it possible to carry out the general repairs and to purchase supplies and medicines. The government of Denmark donated hospital equipment and instruments. The hospital reopened on Apr. 12, 1993. Administrator: P. L. Llaguno, 1986- .
