Mbarara Hospital

Average Reviews


Mbarara Hospital is a public hospital located in Mbarara City, providing free general medical care to the public. It serves as a teaching hospital for the Mbarara University of Science and Technology, one of the four medical schools in Uganda. The hospital is affiliated with the Bishop Stuart University Nursing School, providing an opportunity for nursing students to gain practical experience.

The hospital has a bed capacity of 600, but due to the high demand for medical services, many more patients are admitted, with some sleeping on the floors. The hospital staffs medical students and residents who provide quality medical care to the patients. Mbarara Hospital is also one of the 15 internship hospitals in Uganda, providing an opportunity for medical graduates to serve a one-year internship under the supervision of qualified specialists and consultants.

Mbarara Hospital is the primary referral hospital for the Western Region of Uganda, serving the districts of Mbarara, Bushenyi, Ntungamo, Kiruhura, Ibanda, and Isingiro. The hospital’s strategic location within the central business district of Mbarara City makes it easily accessible to the people in the region.

In 2011, the hospital underwent extensive renovation, rehabilitation, and expansion to transform it into a national referral hospital. The project was undertaken by the Excel Construction Company, a subsidiary of the Madhvani Group. The renovation increased the hospital’s bed capacity from 300 to 608, providing more space for patients.

Despite the shortage of functioning equipment for tertiary healthcare services, Mbarara Hospital continues to provide quality medical care to patients.
