Hope Christian Hospital
Open 24 hours for emergency
Healing for Eternity
A decade and half ago, the only medical facilities available to the children and staff of Village of Hope were the Winneba Hospital and Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. This problem led to the birth of a small clinic that is now a full-fledged primary hospital providing 24-hour medical and surgical services to its clients.
Hope Christian Hospital is accredited by the National Health Insurance Authority, making primary health care more affordable for the children and staff of Village of Hope, and the people living in over 30 rural communities that surround the Village of Hope’s main campus.
Inpatients, day-case patients and outpatients are cared for by a team of professionals who are dedicated to ensuring patients receive the best possible treatment. All our clinical staff are qualified within their field, and undergo regular, in-service training to upgrade their knowledge. We partner with “family” in the care of clients rather than see them as “visitors”.
We offer a range of services in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Dentistry, Ophthalmology/Optometry, Emergency care, Women's and Children's health. Hope Christian Hospital also provides a 24-hour emergency services for patients who require treatment for illness and injuries.
As part of measures to ensure zero maternal deaths and healthy babies, special days have been set aside for prenatal care and postnatal care. During these times, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers are taught on personal hygiene, the need to take medicines, birth preparedness, how to recognize danger signs, etc.
Laboratory services include basic blood tests, microbiological tests, serological tests, and chemical tests. Other diagnostic services are ultrasound scans and Electrocardiogram (ECG).
We do not only care for the physical body but for the soul as well. Our Chaplaincy Unit offers the best spiritual support to clients and provides counselling sessions to all who need it. Through a joint home visitation program with the Community Health Nurses, many clients are reached and the word of God shared with them as the nurses do their preventive and promotive campaigns.
Hope Christian Hospital engages in a number of social intervention programs for the communities we serve. We organize annual free medical, dental and optometric care to thousands of under-privileged people as a social responsibility. This is done with sponsorship from our Christian medics in the United States (White Station Church of Christ and Farragut Church of Christ). This activity not only provides quality healthcare to the people from health-deprived areas of the Central Region of Ghana, but also brings them closer to the love of Christ our saviour.
To honour our commitment to affordable healthcare for the people, we enrol many needy community members on the National Health Insurance Scheme. More often than not, we give waivers to very poor patients who cannot afford to pay their bills.
Growth and Needs
Hope Christian Hospital has recently expanded from a 21-bed facility to an 80-bed capacity. A 60-cot Neonatal Intensive Care Unit block, with mothers’ hostel, has been built to help decentralize the care of neonates in the country. First of its kind in the country, there is an attached home for abandoned-but-found babies.
We need equipment to fill the buildings that we have, in order to provide much needed care. Support us to continue to provide healthcare for the children of Village of Hope and the people in the rural communities of the Central Region.
