Hospital Staff

Chimala Mission Hospital is a growing hospital in a rural community in the southern highlands of Tanzania. We have expanded to 128-beds with male, female, pediatrics, ante-natal, labor and post-natal wards. Our in-patient monthly average is 750 with an average of 250 births (50 by c-section). Because the hospital is located on the only major highway reaching from Dar Es Salaam across southern Tanzania to Malawi and Zambia, we treat many victims of motor vehicle accidents. Often times with more than 30 victims at once. We have a newly built casualty room for these cases. In our minor theatre (treatment room), we will perform minor procedures such as dressing changes, casting, injections, etc. In minor theatre II, we are also set up for minor procedures such as male circumcisions, cervical screening and eye problems. We have one surgical room for major surgeries.

Our out-patient clinic sees an average of 750 clients per month. We also perform outreach mobile clinics to various villages 15 times per month. We have one of the largest HIV clinics in the area with over 6,000 clients and our women and children’s clinic (RCH) performs services for immunizations, pre-natal checks and HIV treatments for pregnant women. We also provide dental, laboratory and x-ray services. We have just installed a new digital x-ray and are looking forward to computerizing our entire hospital in the near future.

Annually, we host an average of 40 medical/nursing students from many different countries for internships where they can learn about healthcare in a developing country. Our staff is friendly and loves to learn as well as share our ways with everyone. Karibu (welcome) to Chimala Mission and Hospital!!
