PROGRESS. The Egbe community, hospital staff, Nigerian businessmen, donors, volunteers, and missionaries have transformed the hospital complex over the past 10 years. The best way to tell the story is to show how the community came together to help tear down the old buildings leading the way for the Revitalization Project.

Containers bringing donated medical equipment including operating tables and lights, ultrasounds, and monitors has replaced outdated equipment and provides opportunities to train staff on new techniques.
A continuous supply of power is vital to the operations of Egbe Hospital. The country power is extremely unreliable so to ensure the hospital has a continuous supply, three diesel generators were installed to provide power to the hospital and for the housing compound.
New wire was laid underground, new electrical panels installed throughout the entire compound. A battery power system now provides 24/7 electricity for medical equipment and constant 220 volt electricity in areas that provide emergency services.
