  • The University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in Lusaka is the biggest hospital in Zambia. It is located in the capital city Lusaka approximately 4Km east of the city centre.

    UTH is the principle medical training institution in the country for Medical Students, Interns, and Postgraduate Doctors. It also provides trains Nurses through the Nursing school located within the hospital grounds as well as Clinical Officers through their college located at Chainama Hills College Hospital.

    The University Teaching Hospital (UTH) represents a remarkable reflection of the health system in Zambia. This giant and complex institution is the referral centre for all complicated medical conditions.

    With a bed space of 1800 spread across four clinical departments and distributed as internal medicine 438, surgery 460, obstetrics and gynaecology 343, neo neonatal 151 and paediatrics 408, UTH compares with any biggest public hospital in the Southern African region. The hospital has a robust outpatient care program with attendance of 310,527 last year in 2013. In the same time period 89,290 were treated as in patients, with the most admissions in the department of maternity and gynea (31,811).

    The overall bed occupancy rate is 82%, reflective of a high disease burden. These statistics are by any measure representative of a very busy hospital. With the rapid population expansion of the city of Lusaka in the last two decades, in the absence of a corresponding expansion of bed space, the hospital is overwhelmed with patient load.
