What We Do

Compassion Evangelical Hospital exists to provide compassionate, high quality, health care to the people of Guinea, West Africa, clearly sharing the love of Jesus in word and deed with every patient. Our goals are to be both a center of excellence for medical care in a region where the lack of access to care results in some of the highest morbidity and mortality rates in the world from treatable and preventable diseases and to be a center of transformation where people find spiritual healing through hearing and embracing the truth of the Gospel.

To achieve these goals, we have a staff of Christian health care workers, Guinean and other West Africans, and are building a facility that can provide the best possible care to our patients. CEH Clinic operations began in November, 2007 and are currently providing care for around 250 patients per week. The first hospital medical and pediatric wards with 24 total beds and a central nursing station opened 2009. A two room operating suite, surgical equipment sterilization and prep room, and surgical ward were dedicated in December 2011. A guest house has been constructed near the clinic and hospital buildings that will provide lodging for short term medical and surgical specialty teams.

Our long term vision is to grow to an 80 bed mission hospital with a busy outpatient clinic involved in medical education and community health development. While building program costs and initiation of clinic and hospital operations will require continued capital infusions, we are diligently working to become financially self-sufficient with expenses paid by the revenues from very low cost clinic visits and hospitalization costs and somewhat higher elective surgical fees and through the donation of medical goods. We continue to seek and build partnerships with like-minded individuals, churches, and foundations to supply capital and volunteer services.
