The hospital is located in the parliamentary constituency of Mawokota County South. This location is approximately 85 kilometres (53 mi), by road, southwest of Kampala, Uganda's capital, on the Kampala-Masaka Highway.[1] The geographical coordinates of the hospital are: 0°00'09.0"N, 32°00'59.0"E (Latitude=0.002490, Longitude=32.016381).[2]

Overview[edit]

During the Uganda-Tanzania War, which toppled Idi Amin, the hospital received extensive damage to buildings and equipment. The X-ray unit damaged during that war was replaced in 2007 through a donation from the Japanese government.[3]

The hospital is owned by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Kampala. It is accredited to the Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau and is managed by the Sisters of Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix.[4] The hospital in December 2004 was staffed by three doctors who performed surgeries, clinical assistants, midwives, nurses, nursing assistants, and other support staff, totaling 107 people.[5] In addition, the hospital serves as the teaching hospital for students pursuing the Master of Science in Health Services Management degree at Uganda Martyrs University, also in Nkozi.[5]
