A UGANDAN based in London, Nathan Karema, has built a hospital in Mbarara worth sh2b. This is the second largest hospital after Mbarara university hospital.
The 100-bed Mbarara Community hospital at Kakiika, Kyamugorani in Mbarara municipality, has 14 units equipped with modern facilities worth sh1.05b.
Karema, 56, told district officials touring the hospital last week that President Yoweri Museveni will open it next month.
“Patients from Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and DR Congo especially the women have been going for modern services in South Africa but now they will be coming here,” Karema said.
He said they will offer free immunisation and family planning services and that poor people, children and elders will be treated at subsidised rates.
“Besides, the disabled people will be treated at a much more subsidised rate,” said Karema.
Facilities include an out patients’ department, general wards, a children’s ward with a skin graft equipment and a labour ward.
The hospital also has an ambulance service, a scanner, a modern mortuary an incinerator and an automatic generator. Ends
