Pioneer Christian Hospital

Pioneer Christian Hospital is a 63-bed general mission hospital in the heart of the Congo River Basin Rainforest.  The mission of Pioneer Christian Hospital is to provide health and hope to those who need it most.

The hospital’s location in Impfondo, Capital of the Likouala Region, on the banks of the Oubangui River, a major tributary of the Congo River, provides ready access to the Equateur Province of Democratic Republic of Congo (Kinshasa), Central African Republic, Cameroun, and the rest of Republic of Congo (Brazzaville), via the established river, road, and air routes.

Pioneer Christian Hospital serves an estimated population of 300,000 people, including local residents, villagers, and vulnerable people groups including indigenous peoples, refugees, the poor, elderly, chronically ill, and AIDS orphans and widows.

A combination of missionary volunteers and paid Congolese staff provide a full spectrum of services 24/7 including Obstetrics, Medicine/Pediatrics, Surgery, Consultation, Laboratory, Medical Imaging, Pharmacy, Chaplaincy, Administration, Maintenance, and Security.

Conditions commonly treated include malaria, sexually-transmitted diseases, tuberculosis, typhoid fever, HIV/AIDS, leprosy, meningitis, monkeypox, and other infectious diseases.  Less exotic conditions including pregnancy, hernia, hypertension, gastritis, diabetes, trauma, and other diagnoses are also commonplace.

The hospital aims to offer healing to the whole person, integrating physical, social, and spiritual treatment as needed.  As a result, Pioneer Christian Hospital is already having a positive impact on the mortality and morbidity of the entire region through the medical, surgical, and chaplaincy services provided.

Pioneer Christian Hospital’s 17-acre campus with its 32 buildings has room for growth for additional ministries to serve the needs of Impfondo’s population.

Pioneer Christian Hospital relies on God’s provision through His people to continue the work of providing health and hope to those in need, as well as the development of new services.

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.
