Lubaga hospital is one of the oldest hospitals in Uganda having existed for over 100 years, being founded in 1899. It is the second oldest hospital in the country and has offered health care to millions of people during its long history of existence.
Over the years the hospital has built a reputation as a provider of affordable health care services and therefore has continued to attract and treat people of mainly midlevel and low level status. The hospital has remained faithful to its founding mission of providing quality health care to the less privileged.

The hospital has also been able to attract professional staff and hence has sustainable quality health care. The hospital employs specialists and consultants in major medical disciplines of internal medicine, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, doctors and clinical officers as well as very experienced nursing and midwifery staff. This has made Lubaga Hospital a large organization with more than 410 staff.
