The hospital began life in 2010 as a small clinic, housed in two modified shipping containers. Today we have a modern, brick-built hospital with two 5-bed male and female wards, a children's ward and a maternity unit with ante- and post-natal wards and a two-bed delivery suite.
The hospital provides employment for a dedicated staff of health professionals, admin, cleaners, cook, and security guards, numbering 34 in all. this is the day-shift: the hospital serves the community 24hours a day, 7 days a week.
STAFF DEVELOPMENT. Regular in-service training sessions keep the medical staff up to date with developments and issues.
The well equipped on-site laboratory provides accurate diagnoses, enabling targeted treatment to begin within the hour. The lab has excellent haematological analysis facilities to detect a vast range of diseases.
Childbirth in a safe environment, coupled with excellent ongoing monitoring in the child-development clinic is producing visible improvement in the health of children and mothers throughout the community.
We are obsessed with the spotless cleanliness of the hospital.
All the floors are tiled: walls and ceilings are washable, and the cleaners never stop!
This is truly a centre of excellence, bringing healthcare, employment and hope to a large community of very poor forest-dwellers.
