UniHealth plans to set up a state-of-the-art 100-bedded tertiary care hospital in Kampala, Uganda. UMC Victoria Hospital, a joint venture between the UniHealth Group (India) and Midcom Group (Uganda) will set up an integrated healthcare facility in Uganda. Benchmarked to international quality standards, state-of-the-art laboratory and radiology diagnostic services, modular operating theatres, in-house pharmacy, the hospital will be well equipped to provide convenient, patient focussed, quality-centric efficient services.

Currently, the Group operates a state-of-art medical centre, Univic Medical Centre, in Kampala. Together, the two groups intend to establish multiple medical centres across the region, enabling ease of access to quality healthcare services by larger segments of under-served populations.

Dr Anurag Shah, Chairman, UniHealth Group said, “This hospital will bring many firsts to the private healthcare sector of Uganda and aims to provide specialised healthcare services to Ugandans who presently need to travel overseas for the same. With modular operating theatres, cardiac catheterisation lab supported by complete radiology and laboratory diagnostic back-up, UMC Victoria Hospital will bring to Uganda the finest healthcare service delivery model”.

Bhasker Kotecha, Chairman, Midland Group said, “UMC Victoria Hospital will set a new benchmark in provision of healthcare services in Uganda. The hospital will deliver quality care to the society and bridge important gaps in diagnostic and therapeutic medical care presently being faced in in the country.”

The hospital, when commissioned, will be equipped with a 64 Slice Cardiac CT Scanner and MRI apart from a technologically advanced diagnostic laboratory. It will also be one of the only private hospitals in the region to have a cardiac catheterisation lab, providing advanced interventional cardiology diagnostic and therapeutic services.
