District General Hospital | Mbarara, Uganda

Hospital description

The Mbarara University Teaching Hospital is a teaching hospital for the Mbarara University of Science and Technology. It is also known as Mbarara Referral Hospital or simply Mbarara Hospital. It is located in western Uganda and is a referral hospital for all of Uganda; it is specifically a referral facility for the districts of Mbarara, Bushenyi, Ntungamo, Kiruhura, Ibanda and Isingiro.

The hospital is a public institution, funded by the Ugandan Ministry of Health, so is able to offer free general care to patients. It is one of only three referral hospitals in Uganda and as such is often overcrowded, with some patients sleeping on the floor due to insufficient bed numbers. This is despite the hospital undergoing renovation and extension work in 2011 to increase its capacity.
