In collaboration with the Ministry of Health, MSF has opened a pediatric unit in a Lebanese public hospital located in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. The goal is to provide free of charge pediatric care to Syrian and Palestinian refugees, as well as vulnerable Lebanese children aged 1 month—15 years old. This unit includes a general ward, an intensive and intermediate care unit, and surgical capacities.
The intensive and intermediate care unit has, respectively, 2 beds (possible expansion to 4) and 4 beds (possible expansion to 6). The role of the intensive care specialist will be to run, in collaboration with Lebanese intensivists, the unit, to participate in the implementation of MSF medical protocols and bedside care and to work in conjunction and as part of a referral system with other hospitals, health facilities, and universities. The candidate will be part of a medical team and will work as part of the pediatric service.
