Former Bishop: John Muhangunzi, North Ankole

Bishop John Muhanguzi, Bishop of North Ankole

When Rushere Hospital was set up in 1992, our Patron said “I wish Rushere to be a Christian-based Interdenominational Hospital”.

The Christian faith continues to be central in the life of Rushere. Every morning, staff and patients gather for morning prayers, and staff meet regularly for bible study and prayer.

The Rushere logo represents the centrality of Christ in the life of the hospital.

Christians from all over the world have prayed for development of the hospital. God has answered their prayers by providing people and funds to enable Rushere to grow and provide excellent healthcare services.

The Christian roots in South West Uganda are very strong. This area was greatly impacted by the East Africa Revival, and the North Ankole Diocese of the Church of Uganda was established in 2003, with a new Catherdral in Rushere.
