Roman Catholic Hospital 1907 - 2007

With gratitude and great joy, the Roman Catholic Hospital celebrates their 100 years of service by providing Christian based quality nursing care service to the sick, as its mission. The Hospital will officially celebrate its centennial on October 2007.

The Roman Catholic Church who established the Mission Hospital in 1907 invited the Franciscan Sisters to administer the management of the facility. The same Sisters who started the Holy Cross School in 1906. 1n 1923, due to the lack of staff among the Sisters to direct the hospital and the need for more Sisters to work in the School apostolate, the Archbishop of the Diocese of Windhoek handed over the Management of the Hospital to the Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing, who manage the Hospital up to the present.

From its humble beginning in 1907, today through the continuous guidance of the Trinity, the Roman Catholic Hospital with its 87 beds continue to accommodate and bring the compassionate healing ministry of Christ to the sick to help them find physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing, stability and peace.
