Kompiam Rural Hospital

Kompiam Rural Hospital is the  major centre for referral in our district, as well as the major administrative hub.

The hospital has 54 beds currently (the new development will expand this to around 80), and offers a full medical, surgical and obstetric services and well as being the major supply base and centre for all preventative health care programs in Kompiam.

The hospital is 45km from Wabag along a slightly¬†difficult dirt road. The station is also serviced by Mission Aviation Fellowship aircraft. Power supply is by diesel generator which runs for 3-4 hours every day. This is also heavily supplemented by solar power, which we have progressively expanded across the hospital and staff housing over the years. Now the hospital operates on 24-hour 240V solar power, however the generator is needed for the staff houses and for “topping up” the solar batteries.

The services offered here have been progressively upgraded over the past 15 years and we hope, when the development is complete, to have established major centre for both health care provision and training.
