Kudjip Nazarene Hospital

Expanded Kudjip Hospital opened

The 10 million Kila expansion project within the ongoing master plan of improvements at the hospital was funded by the Papua New Guinea-Australia Partnership, through the Incentive Fund, and includes 2 million Kina in counterpart funding.

It has expanded the hospital emergency room, surgical outpatient area and operating theatres, as well as constructed a new obstetric ward and nursery, pharmacy, laboratory and dental clinic.

A new purpose-built training and administration building will support the training of doctors and nurses.

Expanded accommodation for medical workers

This was made possible through a partnership between the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and Nazarene Compassionate Ministries Inc.

“The work that Kudjip Nazarene Hospital is undertaking is exceptional. The new housing will allow it to continue to attract and retain the highest quality of physicians and nurses,” said Office of American Schools and Hospitals Abroad (USAID/ASHA) director, Anne Dix.
