Project Profile

Mikulinzi Community Hospital offers services including outpatient and inpatient, laboratory services, minor surgeries, pharmacy services, antenatal services, and child welfare clinic services. The facility serves an average of 20 patients per day. The facility has a total of 30 inpatient beds and 2 daycare observation beds with a labor ward which caters for maternity services. Most of the people served by the nursing home live below the poverty level and therefore this facility has been of great help to the community as it provides healthcare services at a subsidized cost.

With the availability of funds, the hospital expects to establish a theater, radiology, ambulance, and dental services.
