Holley Memorial Hospital

Missionary Hospital | Idah, Nigeria

Hospital description

Holley Memorial Hospital (H.M.H.) at Ochadamu is in Kogi State in the central belt of Nigeria.

Founded in 1950 in response to the needs of those suffering from leprosy H.M.H. is recognised by the Nigerian Government as a place of excellence in the treatment of leprosy. This department is run in partnership with the Leprosy Mission International.

Today, however, the hospital has grown to be a large general hospital providing specialist services in surgery, maternity and obstetrics, orthopaedics, ophthalmics and caring for an increasing number suffering from TB and HIV/AIDS. A large outpatients department cares for the growing local population. Alongside this, faithful witness is given to Jesus Christ through word and action.

A School of Nursing is in development at the hospital and should be functioning within the near future. In partnership with Mission Africa, H.M.H. has recently updated the facilities of the pharmacy and operating theatre.

As a Christian hospital, H.M.H. has a church on the compound. This provides pastoral care to meet the spiritual needs of patients and staff. Many who have come to H.M.H. for medical care have come to faith in Jesus during their stay.

This hospital is suitable for up to 3 – 4 medical electives at any one time. It has good accommodation for visitors and all the meals can be provided! For projects and reports it is not usually suitable for statistical studies as there is not a broad enough patient pool. This hospital has hosted numerous electives in the last 5 years and is a good destination to experience African medicine.
