The Opening Ceremony of Herona Hospital
On February 17 th, Colin Green and his community nurse daughter Kathy joined in the celebrations to officially open Phase One of the new Rural Hospital, Herona Hospital, largely built with IMET2000 funding since May, 2017. Just 20 out of the planned 40 beds in a woman’s ward have been completed and are full with patients.
This is a private not-for-profit hospital serving a population of roughly 300,000 people in a rural community in Kisoga town, Mukono District, and now needs new equipment and more fully qualified staff.

IMET 2000 is now raising funds for the equipment and medicines and ensure future viability.
