Nakaseke Hospital, is a hospital in Uganda. Nakaseke Hospital is located in the town of Nakaseke, in Nakaseke District, Central Uganda, in the part of the country known as the Luweero Triangle.

Its location is approximately 65 kilometres (40 mi), by road, northwest of Kampala, Uganda's capital city.[1] This location is approximately 18 kilometres (11 mi), by road, southwest of the town of Luweero, the largest metropolitan area in the sub-region.[2]

Overview[edit]

Nakaseke hospital is a rural hospital built in the 1960s by the administration of Prime Minister Milton Obote. It serves Nakaseke District together with some parts of neighboring Luweero District and Wakiso District. It has a bed capacity of 120, although sometimes many more patients are admitted, with many sleeping on the floor.

During the National Resistance Movement War in the early 1980s, the hospital served as a major health facility for the NRA guerrillas. Dr. Ronald Bata (R.I.P), the then Medical Director of the hospital, was recruited into the guerrilla force and became their chief medical officer.
