Lubaga hospital is one of the oldest hospitals in Uganda having existed for over 100 years, being founded in 1899. It is the second oldest hospital in the country and has offered health care to millions of people during its long history of existence. Over the years the hospital has built a reputation as a provider of affordable health care services and therefore has continued to attract and treat people of mainly mid level and low level status.
The hospital has remained faithful to its founding mission of providing quality health care to the less privileged. For this reason and considering its age and history the hospital has not expanded its product line but rather remained a modest general hospital. This makes the Hospital committed to a holistic integration and sustainable action in health, including treatment, prevention, health promotion and training of health workers.In October 2012 the Board decided that the name of the hospital should be changed: from previously Rubaga Hospital to Lubaga Hospital. The Board also clarified that the full name of the hospital is now: Uganda Martyrs Hospital Lubaga.
The staff and management of Lubaga Hospital feel that it is a great honour and responsibility to work and serve at a place where the Martyrs showed in front of the whole world that sacrifice, ‘to make sacred’, is the consequence of loving the truth of a reality, the value of a person, not the denial of its goodness. We pray and hope that their example is not just a reminder and a lesson for us but a daily experience that helps us to grow as we follow the noble call of assisting the Lord in the process of healing of the sick.
To be a leading provider of affordable, quality healthcare services in Uganda.
To promote Christ's mission of life and healing through providing sustainable, quality and affordable health care services without discrimination, especially against the less privileged
