Nakasero Hospital Set to Expand

Advancing Healthcare Provision in Uganda..

According to World Health Organization (WHO),the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic, or social condition.

Health system delivery mechanisms such as health infrastructure or facilities are a requisite for health delivery and an ultimate driver of progress to universal health coverage.

This expansion project is expected to be delivered within 16 months meaning we should have the facility ready for occupation in the first quarter of 2023.

CEO, Dr Simon Luzige

Uganda has a robust health sector development plan that seeks to accelerate movement towards universal health coverage. Through the Ministry of Health, many health facilities have been constructed, and the existing facilities expanded to extend better healthcare services to Ugandans.

Nakasero Hospital is one of the private health-care providers in Uganda that has treated thousands of patients across the great lakes region for over ten years ensuring access to quality healthcare for Ugandans and international patients.

On the 7th of October 2021, the management at Nakasero Hospital held a thanks giving service graced by the presence of inter-religious leaders in Uganda to launch the construction project to expand the hospital premises.

This was attended by a number of stake holders who included the management and staff of the hospital with Mr Richard Masereje representing the Board of Directors to this very important function.

The CEO, Dr Simon Luzige highlighted the need for appreciating the impact of God in the growth of Nakasero Hospital culminating in the need to expand the current structure due to the ever growing patient numbers.

The Current Hospital Structure

The expansion shall enable the hospital to scaleup its services, such as increasing the number of hospital beds theatres, consultation rooms and a number of other services generally meant to provide a better service to the patients.

This will also include repurposing the current hospital to create more space for more consultation rooms, ICU, and HDU beds to better service delivery in the critical care department and other departments.

The extension will facilitate the children’s clinic and have more car parking space, ensuring safety and convenience for people who visit Nakasero Hospital.

This expansion project is expected to be delivered within 16 months meaning we should have the facility ready for occupation in the first quarter of 2023.
