Children in Uganda who suffer from physical disabilities like hydrocephalus have little hope for a productive future. Left untreated, infant hydrocephalus leads to significant brain damage, severe developmental delay, blindness, and ultimately death.
CURE Uganda places an equal emphasis on physical and spiritual healing. The hospital has a highly trained team of counselors who are available to talk and pray with patients and their families.
CURE Uganda is a specialty teaching hospital that treats the neurosurgical needs of children with an emphasis on conditions like hydrocephalus, neural tube defects, spina bifida, and brain tumors. It is Africa’s leading hospital for the treatment of these conditions.
CURE Uganda began in 2000, in the eastern city of Mbale. The hospital would like to add several more facilities to their existing 4.7 acre site. These future facilities include expansions of the ICU and Ward, a new Chapel / Admin Multipurpose Building, a Warehouse, and a Gym/Nursery.
EMI is recruiting a team to prepare a phased Master Plan and conceptual architectural designs for the first phase buildings, to do a review of the site utilities, and design of utilities required as the Master Plan is developed.
