The number of beds in each ward include: pediatric (~47), male (25), female (24), isolation/TB (23), and maternity (18). There is currently no ER, but the hospital is open 24 hours a day to receive emergency cases. Approximately 400 patients are seen each clinic day (MWF). There is also a dental clinic located in the hospital, staffed by Ghanaians, doing primarily extractions and cleanings three days per week and administrative work two days per week. Short-term volunteers are reviewed and accepted on a case by case basis depending on facility needs and skill sets of the volunteer.

CHSC medical needs at this facility:

  • Family Medicine/Internal Medicine/Pediatrician
  • General Surgeon

Language: English is spoken by most hospital staff and is the country’s official language. It predominates in government and business affairs, and it is the standard language used for educational instruction. However, BMC is located among the Mamprusi people, and the majority of patients seen at the hospital do not speak or understand English. The primary language in the region is Mampruli. There are also a variety of other languages spoken by patients, including Twi, Bimoba, Mossi, Fulani, French, and others.

Housing: There is a nice guesthouse available on the mission station for short-term visitors. Housing for long-term staff may or may not be available.

Reserve Corps Application

Our Reserve Corps program allows healthcare professionals seeking to volunteer short-term to do so in a way that supports long-term Christian medical missions work. CHSC places healthcare professionals in a growing list of Christian hospitals across Africa, Asia, Latin America and other regions. Christian Health Service Corps works to improve access to primary healthcare, surgical services, and community-based disease prevention services. Non-Christian volunteers are accepted on a case by case basis but solely at the discretion of the hospital and CHSC team the volunteer will be supporting.

Faith Questions

Christian Health Service Corps staff are missionary medical professionals, but we do invite our non-Christian colleagues to join our effort to bring quality healthcare to the poor at the discretion of mission hospital and CHSC staff at the facility. Every volunteer is expected to follow the hospital dress code, where there is one, and code of conduct.
