Mukinge Mission Hospital

Mukinge Mission Hospital is located in the Northwestern Province of Zambia serving a population of 100,000 in the districts Kasempa and Mufumbwe.  It was founded by missionary physician Dr Bob Foster nearly sixty years ago and today is owned by the Evangelical Church of Zambia, funded by grants from both church-based and government-based sources.

Mukinge is a 200-bed referral facility with seven inpatient wards, for general medical/surgical (male and female), maternity (1,400 deliveries per year), pediatrics, isolation, TB, and malnutrition cases.

Outpatient patients number an average of 170 daily with general care clinics as well as clinics for well-child care, antenatal care, family planning, tuberculosis, nutrition, surgery, ophthalmology, and STDs.  The physical therapy department offers whirlpool therapy, plaster casting, rehabilitation, prosthesis and leprosy follow-up. And the pharmacy has basic drug supplies.

Community services include family planning, antenatal care, well-child care, leprosy, nutrition and ophthalmology care.  There is also a full-time community-based AIDS team in addition to a mobile and in-house eye-care program.

Currently, the hospital staff includes two Zambian physicians and one expatriate general surgeon.

CHSC staff often serve as faculty in established training programs and residencies raising up the next generation of health professionals. Others train national staff in less formal environments. Building local capacity is central to the identity of the Christian Health Service Corps. Therefore we actively seek out places where we can have a lasting impact by discipling, and training local Christian physicians and health professionals to serve in their own communities. Mukinge is one of those places.

CHSC missionary physicians Dr Kent Brantly and Dr Stephen Snell, and missionary RN, Amber Brantly will be joining Mukinge in the Fall of 2019 to work alongside Zambian colleagues, train staff, and build capacity in this rural facility.

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.
