Mini Hospitals

108 new Mini Hospitals will be built on this project

The Mini Hospitals are here to support the sustainable advancement of healthcare in Zambia


The Mini Hospitals are central to the delivery of local healthcare, as they form important hubs providing a range of localised healthcare services for people in areas throughout the country.  They will provide a one stop facility for the provision of primary health care services, with more complicated health problems being referred on to District Hospitals.

To ensure that each Mini Hospital meets the needs of its community, the following services will be provided:

  • Clinical Services: In-Patient Wards / Maternity and Delivery Suite
  • Ambulatory Care Services: Outpatient Department / ART Clinic
  • Para Clinical Services: Laundry and Linen / Materials and Stores / Plant Engineering and Maintenance

The new Mini Hospitals will house the following:

In-Patient Pavilion

  • Male in-patient facility
  • Female in-patient facility
  • Paediatric in-patient facility
  • Isolation room = 2

Out-Patient Pavilion

  • Consultation rooms = 2
  • Mother and children’s health room = 1

Laboratory Area

Registry Area

Maternity Pavilion

  • Pre-natal in-patient facility
  • Post natal in-patient facility
  • Delivery in-patient facility

ART Clinic

  • Consultation room = 1

Construction Method

The Mini Hospitals are constructed using a light steel frame system, providing various benefits to the structures and the project:

  • Speed and ease of erection of the structures
  • Accurate and high-quality structures that can easily be replicated
  • Highly insulated structures
  • Lower maintenance and lifecycle costs
  • Simple assembly of structures creates employment opportunity for unskilled labour
  • Higher degree of safety on site during construction

Staff Housing

In order to help with the staffing of these brand new Mini Hospitals, staff accommodation has been designed into the overall layout of the sites:

  • 2 x two bedroom houses
  • 2 x three bedroom houses

New Mini Hospitals Now Serving Their Communities

By | Hospitals, Mini Hospitals, News | No Comments

The first set of mini hospitals completed on the ‘Built To Care’ Zambia project, in Tubalange, Nakachenje and Mondengwa, are now being utilised to provide their local communities with high quality health services. Nakachenje alone has already served over 700 patients and successfully and safely delivered 8 babies.

Maternal and Child Healthcare (MCH) sessions have also been held at these three Mini Hospitals, with a dedicated day held at each of these facilities for under-five’s where weighing and examination consultations are offered by midwives in order to diagnose any ailments or injuries. This is an outpatient service where pregnant mothers can congregate, share stories and listen to talks on wellbeing and healthy living while undergoing examinations to ensure everything is well.
