Egbe Hospital

ECWA Hospital Egbe, commonly referred to as Egbe Hospital is located in Egbe, Kogi State, Nigeria. It was founded in 1952 by SIM Missionaries Dr George and Esther Campion. The hospital has grown from a small maternity clinic to a 75-bed, multi-service complex, comprised of approximately 33 acres with 68 buildings – including a Colleg of Nursing & Midwifery, with an enrollment of just over about 200 students, being trained and sent throughout Nigeria.

Our History

Egbe Hospital was founded in 1952 by SIM missionaries Dr. and Mrs. Campion. In the 1976 the entire medical complex was transferred by SIM to ECWA (Evangelical Church Winning All), a large church denomination. After 60 years of service, in 2010 the Egbe Hospital Revitalization Project was established through partnership with ECWA, SIM, and Samaritan’s Purse.

Our Mission

To be known as a self-sustaining Christian hospital known for integrity, compassionate medical care, and excellence in training by exceptional staff.

Our Values

In many places in Africa, a child who has malaria, dysentery, or appendicitis, may face death if there is no medical care for over 100 miles of treacherous roads. The vision for Egbe Hospital is to change that forever.

What We Do

Egbe Hospital serves the medical needs of the people of this region of Nigeria (and beyond), with a strong emphasis of sharing the gospel but more importantly, demonstrating the gospel by caring and working with excellence. We believe that healing begins the moment a patient walks into the hospital or from the time they are seen during an outreach clinic in the bush. We also train close to 200 students in the College of Nursing which started as the School of Nuring and Midwifery. These nurses are trained and sent out to all over Nigeria to use their skills and love for the Lord to touch the lives of so many people.
