Also whereas an average of 1, 200 babies annually, we perform about 600 surgeries annually.

As a government health facility, the Hospital accepts valid National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) cards as healthcare financing option in addition to out-of-pocket payment, about 70% of the clients seen are insured by the NHIS.
