Kibuli Hospital’s journey from a clinic

Kibuli Muslim Hospital started as a small clinic, offering limited services. It was established by our Muslim brothers and sisters around Kibuli under the guidance and support of Prince Badru Kakungulu. It comprised 1 clinician room and the second one was added later, a small injection room, a small laboratory (carrying out 3-4 tests only). The clinic operated up to 5:00pm and had very very few drugs in the shelves.

A few years later, an inpatient facility was started, which was named Kibuli Nursing Home. Later on, a theatre was established which was carrying out mainly circumcision and few operations. The maternity ward had only 2 beds and immunization was carried out under a tree. There was a small number of staff and no specialist was there at that time. Antenatal would only be carried out once a week. The private wing Kakungulu was later established, having 9 beds to offer services to the private patients. During then there was no strategic plan for the development of the nursing home. In 1998, we discovered King Faizal Hospital’s proposal, written in early 1990s, but nothing was achieved.

The first plan was to transform a nursing home into a hospital. The first 5-year plan was drafted by the hospital management team, financed by IIRO and supported by the Young Men Muslim Association of Uganda, under the guidance of Prince Kassim Nakibinge, the patron and the later Dr. Sulaiman Kiggundu the president (May ALLAH have mercy upon him).

  1. A new Outpatient department with all facilities was established
  2. A 30-bed surgical ward and 3 theatres were established. This attracted many surgeons and the hospital started to be used for referral
  3. Upgrading the old building and making it medical and paediatric ward.
  4. Establishing a new maternity ward with 10 beds.
  5. Establishing a patient records department.
  6. Establishing a proper drug storage
  7. Starting primary healthcare programs and outreaches
  8. Working by the budget done by the management and approved by the board.
  9. Having periodic board meetings and detailed management reports.
  10. Organising mobile clinics to the community Linking the hospital to the world by inviting international delegates and visiting them abroad.



Power backup was also established so as to have a constant power supply in the hospital.

Community service still goes on at the facility.

Second Five years (2000 - 2005)

In the second five-years we got a paediatric ward that was established with a 30-bed capacity; a new maternity ward with 3 labour suites, maternity theatre, 3 private rooms, 1 I ntensice Care Unit for the neonatal unit.

A new administration block was established and a proper medical recording system put in place.

Third development plan 2005-2010

In relation to the 3rd developmental plan, we established a nursing training school.n Somani Complex of the hospital was established within the first 3 years. It has a capacity of 160 beds, 5 labour suites, 4 major theatres, 4 minor theatres. All these developments have contributed towards a positive transformation of the Muslim image in Uganda.

Preparation for the faculty of Health Science is the next target we are looking at. We have developed a Memorandum of Understanding with IUIU (to give practical skills to the students of IUIU in the faculty of medicine. We have also made partnerships with several international universities and institutions in order to achieve this objective (Like University of Lahore
-Pakistan, Cairo University - Egypt).
