It is the referral hospital for the entire country and specifically for the districts of Mbarara, Bushenyi, Ntungamo, Kiruhura, Ibanda and Isingiro.

The hospital also serves as the teaching hospital (facility) of Mbarara University of Science and Technology.

The medical facility was founded by the Uganda Ministry of Health, and general care in the hospital is free.

It is affiliated with the medical school of Mbarara University of Science and Technology, one of the four medical schools in Uganda and is among a few “Internship Hospitals” in Uganda where graduates of such schools can serve one year of internship under the supervision of qualified specialists and consultants.

Its bed capacity is 600, although, as is the case with many Ugandan public hospitals, many more patients are admitted, with the excess sleeping on the floors.
