Family Health Hospital is embarking on a massive infrastructural expansion work on the Eye, Dental and Dialysis centres for patient care and for teaching Family Health Medical students.

The expansion work comprises an enhanced Paedriatic Unit that would take in more children, a larger Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and more Consulting Rooms for Specialists.

The Emergency Unit has also been expanded to accommodate both male and female patients.

The Hospital has acquired a piece of Heart-Lung equipment, which will soon be used for open-heart surgeries.

Family Health Hospital, aside providing excellent and quality healthcare, also serves as a training and attachment centre for both students of Family Health Medical School, and Family Health Nursing and Midwifery School.
