Description

Bishop Ceaser Asili Memorial Hospital, also known as Bishop Asili Hospital, is a leading community hospital in Uganda owned and operated by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kasana–Luweero. Located in the town of Luweero in the Buganda region, this hospital is the only general hospital in the district, offering exceptional healthcare services to the community it serves.


History

Founded as Bishop Asili Health Centre, this hospital was named after the late Bishop Cesare Asili, who served as the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lira from 1968 until his death in 1988. In 2006, the clinic was affiliated with the Just Like My Child Foundation (JLMCF), a San Diego-based non-profit that raised funds for various projects, including the construction of a surgical theater, the procurement of surgical equipment, and the hiring of a doctor.


Services

Bishop Ceaser Asili Memorial Hospital provides a wide range of medical and surgical services, including treatment for HIV/AIDS, prenatal, obstetric and postnatal care, malaria treatment and prevention, and medical and surgical therapeutic care. Due to the hospital’s reputation for providing high-quality services, patients from other parts of the country also seek services at this facility

.

Expansion

The hospital has experienced significant growth in recent years. During the twelve months that ended in June 2013, the hospital treated 21,000 patients. One year later, that number doubled to 42,000. As a result of the acquisition of a laboratory and refrigeration capabilities for blood storage, the Uganda Ministry of Health designated the facility as a hospital, rather than a clinic.


Community Involvement

In addition to providing healthcare services, JLMCF has been active in the surrounding villages, building schools, working with families and community leaders to start self-sustaining farming businesses, and holding workshops to teach life skills and mentor more than 1,300 adolescent girls in 12 villages. JLMCF has also been able to establish a community health insurance plan, serving over 18,000 individuals.
