Within a few months of beginning work in the district, Partners In Health transformed Butaro Health Center into a temporary hospital facility complete with an operating room and supported the recruitment of health care providers to staff the facility. In December 2008, construction began on a new 150-bed district hospital in Butaro.
The vision for the new Burera hospital is ambitious and multifold: to bring a well-designed and innovative new hospital to serve the people of Burera. The plans for infection control, expanded existing and new services, training programs, and modern equipment and technology will all make the delivery of the highest quality of care possible for the population of Burera, a region that has long lacked access to high quality health care. more
