In 2014, the Rotary club of Kampala under the then President- Rotarian (Rtn.) David Kasingwire, started construction of this hospital dubbed ‘The Rotary hospital Mukono,’ to bridge this gap. Construction works are now complete and have cost 800m (UGX), raised from the Rotary fraternity.
The hospital will run on robotics technology, maintain a cloud-record management system and a telemedicine centre to link the 18 medical rooms including a surgery unit, trauma centre, diagnostic lab, X-ray centre, endoscopy centre, scan room, and a gynaecology unit.
“We have already acquired a Robot, donated by USA, so that local doctors work with doctors in Israel and USA to manage surgery together. In addition, we have acquired an endoscopy machine and some theatre beds to begin with. We would like patients, especially the victims of accidents along the highway, to be referred to this hospital instead of being sent to Mulago hospital so that one takes the shortest possible time to receive medical care,” explains Rtn. Kasingwire.
