In 2001, EMERGENCY opened the Surgical Center in Goderich, a village located in the outskirts of Freetown. An abandoned medical clinic was renovated and transformed, and with new buildings added to create a high quality Medical and Surgical Center to treat war victims and orthopedic patients. The criteria for admissions were later expanded to include all surgical emergencies.

Two new wards were added in 2003, one of which was specifically intended for treating patients suffering from pediatric malaria, acute anemia and respiratory infections.

Since 2001 EMERGENCY has treated over 464,801 people in Sierra Leone.
