Kibuli Hospital, sometimes referred to as Kibuli Muslim Hospital (KMH), is a hospital in Kampala, Uganda's capital and largest city.


KHM is located on Kibuli Hill in Makindye Division, in the southeastern part of Kampala, Uganda's capital and largest city. The hospital is approximately 3.5 miles (5.6 km) southeast of Kampala's central business district, adjacent to Kibuli Mosque and Kibuli Secondary School. The coordinates of the hospital are 0°18'34.0"N, 32°35'43.0"E (Latitude:0.309445; Longitude:32.595275).[2]


KMH was founded in 1975 as an outpatient facility on land that had been donated in the 1930s by Prince Badru Kakungulu. The hospital added an inpatient unit with 59 beds in 1995. In 2005, the hospital opened an emergency medicine department, along with an outpatient wing. KHM is assigned a health sub-district within Makindye Division East, where it carries out primary health care activities with the collaboration of Makindye Division, the Kampala Capital City Authority, and the United Nations Environmental Program.[3]
