The Bindura Provinical Hospital is a public hospital in the Mashonaland region of Zimbabwe. The hospital is located in Bindura which is the provincial capital and which has a population in excess of 20,000. The hospital is one of two in the region; it is government owned and has a dedicated maternity ward, which takes up 25% of the bed capacity (it has 49 of the total beds). Although there are relatively few doctors at the hospital there is a large nursing contingent.
In 2003 the hospital piloted a Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission (PMTCT) programme to prevent HIV/AIDS being passed on to children from their mothers. The results of this scheme were not positive as many patients did not follow up with anti-retroviral treatments.
Bindura is in the north east of the country and was previously an established mining area.
