The New Hospital Opens

At the end of April we officially took possession of the second stage construction of the Yotkom Medical Centre in Kitgum. 
The new building provides admission wards  for 50 patients , a Maternal and Child Health facility with antenatal unit, two labour wards and a second operating theatre.  We also have a new meeting / teaching  room and administration area plus a dedicated vaccination room .
The covered balconies provide a lot of cool shaded places for our patients to rest and recuperate .
Our overcrowded original outpatient building will continue to function and will now have additional space for a dedicated dental consulting room and possible future day surgery and expanded pathology laboratory .






We have some beautiful murals painted by Joshua, a local African artist and some photos from Australia to hang on the walls and remind us of the  partnerships and donors who made this facility possible , most especially the Gateway Baptist Church in Brisbane.
