The National Catholic Health Service (NCHS) is a private not for profit healthcare provider, owned by the Catholic Church in Ghana. The institutional health facilities (i.e. hospitals and clinics) of the NCHS began in the early 1950’s at a time when there was an urgent need to provide such facilities for rural dwellers who had virtually no access to modern orthodox health care and often requested for them. Expatriate missionary professional staff supported by local auxiliary workers introduced and manned these institutions at the time. Thus all the hospitals of the NCHS started as little clinics and primary health care facilities.
A Health Service that is best in meeting patient needs and expectations.
To provide high quality healthcare in the most effective/efficient and innovative manner, specific to the needs of the communities we serve and at all times acknowledging the dignity of the patient.
To strengthen and improve the NCHS in its ability to provide and sustain health care services for the poor, neglected and marginalized segments of the society. The services will seek to empower the people it serves to take ownership of their own individual and collective health needs.
