Saint Kizito Hospital, Matany, commonly known as Matany Hospital is a private hospital in Matany, Moroto District, Karamoja sub-region, Northeastern Uganda.

Location[edit]

The hospital is located approximately 40 kilometres (25 mi), by road, southwest of Moroto, the nearest large town and the location of the district headquarters.[1] Matany lies approximately 385 kilometres (239 mi), by road, northeast of Kampala, the capital of Uganda and the largest city in that East African country.[2]

Overview[edit]

Matany Hospital is a private, non-profit, community hospital owned by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Moroto and is accredited by the Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau. The hospital is administered by Comboni Sisters, a religious congregation. The hospital has a capacity of 226 beds.

Matany Hospital Maintains an attached Nursing Training School, an airstrip (Matany Airstrip). Due its relatively well-maintained infrastructure, compared to nearby Moroto Regional Referral Hospital, Matany Hospital functions as a referral hospital for the Karamoja sub-region and for the nearby districts of Amuria, Katakwi and Soroti.[3]

History[edit]

St. Kizito Hospital, Matany was built in the early 1970s with assistance from MISEREOR, a German religious organization, at the invitation of the Comboni Missionaries.
