Saint Francis' Hospital, Katete, Zambia
Saint Francis Hospital - Main Entrance

Welcome to Saint Francis’ Hospital

St Francis' is a 350-bed hospital in rural Zambia, providing medical and surgical care to the people of Katete District (population 200,000), as well as accepting referrals from the whole of Eastern Province (population 1.5 million).

The hospital employs and trains Zambian doctors, nurses, midwives and support staff, but due to the shortage of health workers in sub-Saharan Africa, we are always looking for volunteers from overseas to help us in our work.

We are also a popular destination for medical students from all over the world, who come to spend their “elective” studies with us.

The hospital is integrated into the Zambian Health Service, but we also rely on fund-raising and donations from abroad to maintain our enviable standards of care.
