The Kacyiru Police Hospital (KPH) serves the general public and inmates as patients. It is a 60-bed hospital with two operating suites, gynecology, obstetrics and neonatology, lab and dental. By the first of February 2014, leadership hopes to be able to provide X-ray and toxicology services, too. They are uniquely focused to provide a gender based violence program as well as post-mortem and DNA testing to assist with evidence for criminal cases. KPH now has a new wing under construction that will add 97 beds for a total of 157 beds and they will begin to offer in-patient services for Internal Medicine and Pediatrics as well as have a comprehensive emergency department. The hospital’s leadership has a vision to become a referral hospital that provides specialized health services at an international level. The team hopes to help them achieve that by reviewing services and plans under development, including a building currently under construction and programs, like gender based violence recovery and prevention.
