Hopital Baptiste Biblique, Tsiko, Togo
Hospital Expansion Design Development

The sole purpose of Hopital Baptiste Biblique (HBB) is to use medicine to reach into people’s lives with the Good News of the saving power of Jesus Christ.

HBB, also known as the Karolyn Kempton Memorial Christian Hospital, is a 40-bed hospital that opened in 1985. There are male and female wards, a pediatric ward, an ICU and infectious disease ward, as well as a new 8-10 bed maternity ward with a four bed delivery area which opened in 2009. There are a few isolation and private rooms, a triage area and a busy outpatient clinic with an average of 18,000 outpatient clinic visits per year. HBB is in southwest Togo, just north of Kpalimé. The hospital is located on 32 beautiful acres at the foot of the Danyi Plateau between two large urban areas. Lush and green, the site abounds with trees, flowers, and vegetation. It is a major medical, surgical, and acute-care facility that serves approximately half a million people.

Project Scope
This project team will follow up on the Master Plan project of one year ago. With the current conceptual design as a starting point, we will further develop these designs for the phased expansion of the hospital.
