Prior to 2014, three specialized doctors; Romano Byaruhanga, Joseph Turyabahika and Wilson Were, established a consultation clinic at 14A Buganda Road, in the center of Kampala, which they named Kampala Medical Chambers Clinic. In 2014, following the completion of a new multi-storey building (Jowiro House) at 73 Buganda Road, the clinic relocated to the new premises and began to admit inpatients, although it continued to attend to outpatients. The new hospital complex was named Kampala Medical Chambers Hospital.[3] The hospital is a member of International Health Network, a health maintenance organisation[4] The hospital and clinic played a role in the introduction of the menstrual cup to Ugandan patients.[5]
