Kisiizi Hospital

Missionary Hospital | Kabale, Uganda

Hospital description

It is situated at the head of a valley in the hills of Kigezi in South-West Uganda. A spectacular waterfall powers a 60kW hydroelectric generator (being upgraded to 250kw) providing electricity to the hospital and surrounding campus.

Staff: 5 permanent doctors, 5 clinical officers, visiting short-term doctors and medical students, a physiotherapist and an occupational therapist. Ugandan nurses act as interpreters as most of the patients only speak Rukiga.

Departments: There are currently six wards: Maternity, Children’s, Surgical, Medical, Isolation, and TB. There are two main operating theatres, a minor theatre, laboratory, X-ray, and ultrasound facilities. The out-patient clinic doubles as a casualty department. Patients travel from all around to the hospital on pick-ups. Inpatients have a relative to attend to their basic needs. A relative’s hostel is provided to accomodate them. Kisiizi also has a community-based health-care programme, a cost-sharing health insurace scheme, an enrolled nurse training school, a rehabilitation unit and a primary school.
