Nyarugenge District and China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation (CCECC) Ltd have signed the agreement to construct the first phase of district hospital.

Worth Rwf6 billion, construction works for the first phase will start by January next year.

The hospital will be constructed in Kivugiza Cell, Nyamirabo Sector of Nyarugenge District on 2.2 hectares of land.

Nyarugenge District Executive Secretary, Fred Hategekimana said that the hospital will provide quick medical services to district residents.

“Though we have University Teaching Hospital of Kigali (CHUK) and Muhima Hospital in this district, none of them is a District Hospital. So, this one will be the hospital for the district. Muhima hospital is for child and maternal services but this hospital will provide all services. CHUK is a referral hospital that receives patients from District hospitals, not from health centers. So, this hospital will provide all these services,” he said.

The construction works for the hospital was jointly financed by the government of Rwanda and Belgium through Belgium Technical Cooperation’s Programme Ubuzima Burambye.

The construction works will be conducted in two phases and the first phase will be completed in the next 16 months.
