The Hospital

A tour de force: an utterly singular modern Moroccan classic “When I walked through the large iron gate of the hospital, I must have still been alive…” So begins Ahmed Bouanani’s arresting, hallucinatory 1989 novel The Hospital, appearing for the first time in English translation. Based on Bouanani’s own experiences as a tuberculosis patient, the hospital begins to feel increasingly like a prison or a strange nightmare: the living resemble the dead; bureaucratic angels of death descend to direct traffic, claiming the lives of a motley cast of inmates one by one; childhood memories and fantasies of resurrection flash in and out of the narrator’s consciousness as the hospital transforms before his eyes into an eerie, metaphorical space. Somewhere along the way, the hospital’s iron gate disappears. Like Sadegh Hedayat’s The Blind Owl, the works of Franz Kafka—or perhaps like Mann’s The Magic Mountain thrown into a meat-grinder—The Hospital is a nosedive into the realms of the imagination, in which a journey to nowhere in particular leads to the most shocking places.

The Hospital by the River

A story of hope

Gynaecologists Catherine and Reg Hamlin left Australia in 1959 on a short contract to establish a midwifery school in Ethiopia. Over 40 years later, Catherine is still there, running one of the most outstanding medical programmes in the world. The Hamlins dedicated their lives to women suffering the catastrophic effects of obstructed labour. The awful injuries that such labour produces are called fistulae, and until the Hamlins began their work in Ethiopia, fistula sufferers were neglected and forgotten – a vast group of women facing a lifetime of incapacity and degradation. Catherine and Reg, with their team of dedicated fistula surgeons, have successfully operated on over 25,000 women, and the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital, the hospital they opened in 1974, has become a major teaching institution for gynaecologists from all over Ethiopia and the developing world. Since Reg’s death, Catherine and her team have continued the work.

Doctors need hospitals and hospitals need doctors. Then why do they continue to communicate their needs to each other so badly? Why all the animosity, conflict, and mistrust? In The Physician's Survival Guide for the Hospital, Dr. Samuel H.

Hospital administrators will learn what physicians need to take care of their patients. Physicians, those just starting their practice as well as the more seasoned, will learn the best and most efficient ways to get their hospital work accomplished. They will also become skilled at managing their hospital practice, thus making it a more enjoyable and rewarding experience. Step-by-step, The Physician's Survival Guide for the Hospital takes you through all of the issues of the physician-hospital practice in order to generate better teamwork, avoid common pitfalls and mistakes, and provide a road map to make the hospital a better place for patients and staff.
