The Monze Mission Hospital is located in Monze, Zambia. The hospital is one of two general hospitals in the Southern Province of Zambia, the other being Livingstone. It began in 1964 as a small health centre for the local rural population, and has since grown into a large district hospital, with a 276 bed capacity. It has male and female surgical and medical wards, a paediatric ward, and a maternity block, with ante-natal, post-natal and labour wards. There is also a paediatric malnutrition ward, a TB ward, and a small intensive care ward with very limited monitoring equipment. Despite it’s growing size, the hospital is still an independent hospital, and is currently administered by the Sisters of the Holy Spirit, a local group. There is also a school of nursing on site.
Due to its size (the hospital is classed as both level 1 and level 2 within Zambia as it both a District AND General hospital) the hospital has a very wide catchment area and often receives patients from neighbouring districts due to its status as a general hospital. As such, the hospital can be said to serve a population of approximately 800,000, as other provinces refer to Monze Mission Hospital for specialised care.
The managing order of sisters are very much involved in the running of the hospital, as well as its administration. They work in most departments, including Nursing & HIV/AIDS.
Medical, Midwifery and Nursing elective placements are available at this hospital. Dental electives are available at the nearby hospital TBC.
