Kilembe Mines Hospital

District General Hospital | Kilembe, Uganda

Hospital description

This placement is organised by Act 4 Africa

Kilembe Mines Hospital is a general hospital of 200-bed capacity serving Kasese in the beautiful western region of Uganda beside the Rwenzori Mountains. Close to the mountain gorillas, the Rift Valley and many National Parks, the hospital has been in action since 1952, when it arose as a medical facility supporting the mine workers, and has been serving the general community ever since.

The hospital strives to be an excellent health provider of preventive, curative and rehabilitation services. Kilembe Mines prides itself on having become an orthopaedic hub in the wider Kasese region. It aims to improve the services provided by working proactively with doctors and research centres globally. Donors and volunteers continue to be needed to support and assist this growing hospital and the community outreach surrounding it, as at the moment patients have to pay a small fee for services and there is a staff shortage.
