This hospital started as a small sick bay for the children in the boarding section of our school Bishop Cipriano Kihangire SSS. Later on, another block for the out-patients was annexed and was opened to the public. Benedict Medical Center operates on a charity basis, as it works to provide medical services to the people at minimal costs. The hospital has a modern maternity ward, a functioning theater, x-ray and dental departments. This facility serves both the students and the general public
Benedict Medical Center has since 2009 when it was opened to the public, experienced an increase in the number of patients that it handles daily and this has necessitated yet another extended wing (already built) in order to serve the Luzira community that statistically holds about 100,000 dwellers and the neighborhood more efficiently. Most of the sick people it handles are the needy although those that can raise some payment for treatment are also attended to.
The management of Emmaus Foundation and that of Benedict Medical Center are always grateful for the support extended towards this cause from all its partners.
Today our medical personnel are committed to serving over 2000 people monthly . The Health facility has the following active operational departments: Surgery, maternity, radiology, dental and much more. Our facility has a gelanic laboratory where lo-cost drugs are produced and a lab analysis unit where diagnosis for time bound cases are handled.
Today, our doctors and nurses, mostly Ugandans, are treating more than 2,000 people a month. The hospital has departments such as radiology, surgery, maternity (department set up with the support of a group of Italian doctors), dental e.t.cl.
We have a galenic laboratory, where we produce low-cost drugs, and a laboratory analysis to ensure timely diagnosis, fundamental especially in cases of malaria.
