Officially opened in Mbale, Uganda on January 19, 2021, CURE Uganda is one of Africa’s leading pediatric hospitals for brain surgery and the treatment of neurological conditions. It provides minimally-invasive endoscopic neurosurgical procedures and attracts surgeons from around the world to its prestigious CURE Neuro Fellowship Program. The teaching hospital consists of three operating rooms, an 18-bed Intensive Care Unit and 37 Ward beds. Hospital staff complete approximately 1,500 surgical procedures annually for children with conditions including hydrocephalus, spina bifida, brain tumors, and other neural tube defects. In addition to world-class clinical service, CURE Uganda ministers to the emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their communities.
Luke 9:2 tells us that Jesus ‘sent them out to heal the sick and proclaim the kingdom of God.’ In response, CURE’s mission is to reach and heal more children living with disabilities like clubfoot, bowed legs, cleft lips, untreated burns, and hydrocephalus. We do this through a global network of pediatric surgical hospitals that serve children.
Dr. C. Scott Harrison, a successful orthopedic surgeon and international businessman, was asked to perform spine surgery and teach higher-level orthopedic surgery skills to local medical practitioners in Malawi. Over the years, Scott and his wife, Sally, returned to Malawi on many occasions to help children with disabilities. The great physical and spiritual needs of these children weighed heavily on their hearts, and they wanted to do something more about it.
