Egbe Hospital

ECWA Hospital Egbe, commonly referred to as Egbe Hospital is located in Egbe, Kogi State, Nigeria. (website: Egbe Hospital was founded in 1952 by SIM Missionaries Dr George and Esther Campion. The hospital has grown from a small maternity clinic to a 75-bed, multi-service complex, comprised of approximately 33 acres with 68 buildings. It includes a School of Nursing & Midwifery, with an enrollment of just over 150 students, who are being trained and sent as nurses and midwives throughout Nigeria. A Family Medicine Residency Program was established in 1982 with accreditation under the National Postgraduate Medical College of Physicians and later by the West African College of Physicians.

Egbe Hospital was originally intended to serve the people of this very rural area, now people from across Nigeria come to Egbe to receive health care!
