Bingham University Teaching Hospital (formerly Evangel Hospital)

Missionary Hospital | Nigeria

Hospital description

ECWA Evangel Hospital is a 150-bed general hospital located in Jos, Nigeria.

Founded by the Sudan Interior Mission (now “SIM”: http://www.sim.org/) in 1959, Evangel is now under the auspices of the Evangelical Churches Winning All (ECWA).

Since 2009, the official name of the hospital has been changed to Bingham University Teaching Hospital.
The hospital describes itself below:

Our Medical Departments

Our core medical services include surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics, and obstetrics and gynecology. Over the past decade several new specialized areas have been added:

  • Ophthalmology
  • Ear, nose, and throat surgery
  • Dentistry
  • Vesicovaginal fistula (VVF) surgery
  • HIV care including antiretroviral treatment program

Medical Education

The shortage of qualified African doctors is acute. Besides providing high quality medical care, Evangel is also active in medical education, providing several types of training but most notably a nationally accredited general practice residency program. As of mid-2010, we are in the process of being accredited as a university teaching hospital under Bingam University, and plan to have a full program of teaching medical students. Other areas of medical education include:

  • General and specialty rotations for Nigerian doctors from other sites
  • “Rotations abroad” for medical students and residents from other countries
  • Training site for the Pan-African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS)
  • Our education programs emphasize not only medical excellence but whole-person care, an ethos of compassion, and Christian discipleship. The specialty areas listed above make our training programs even more attractive.

What We Believe

We embrace the evangelical Protestant faith in one God, humanity created in the image of God, the spiritual lostness of people, and reconciliation to God through Jesus Christ.
