- Ekwendeni Hospital, a ministry of the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian, Synod of Livingstonia, is one of the oldest mission hospitals in Malawi. The hospital serves a poor community of over 75,000 people in northern Malawi. It began providing medical care in the late 1890’s and the facilities and services have steadily developed since that time.
In February 1986, a new large hospital complex was completed, expanding the inpatient bed capacity to 250. The hospital includes a well-baby and outpatient building and separate buildings for the maternity, pediatrics and medical units. Each year the hospital provides preventive and curative services to an average of 14,000 outpatients and over 6,000 inpatients.
