Benedict Menni Rehabilitation Centre

St. Benedict Menni Health Centre belongs to the Archdiocese of Monrovia and is managed by the Sisters Hospitallers of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

The numbers

The Health Centre was re-opened in 2015 after the Ebola crisis in April:
Outpatients: 5,791
Births: 164
Laboratory: 4,666

Location

The Centre is located on the outskirts of Monrovia with a population of between 2,500 to 3,000 inhabitants in the near vicinity.

Centre Services

The Centre provides 24 hours general medical services in a purpose built clinic located at the top of a steep hill about 300 metres from the convent area. Due to the outbreak of Ebola the Health Centre was closed for a few months in 2014/15. The opportunity was taken in January to April 2015 to undertake a major renovation of the clinic such that the facility looks again modern, airy and fit for purpose. Further, a waiting area, triage and isolation unit (wet and dry with respective entrance and exists) was constructed in order to meet best practice in regard to Ebola precautions. Thanks are extended to the Congregation and other benefactors for financial provision.

Step Down Mental Health Program

We are working to start a new project for people with mentally illness. Entitled “Step Down Mental Health Program”, we will be working in collaboration with the Ministry of Health of Liberia  and other agencies. We have recently met with CRS (Catholic Relive Service) who has shown interest in this project.

This project will run within the Children’s Centre as the activity with the children stopped some years ago due to a shortage of doctors available to perform the necessary surgical intervention. The Province decided to initiate the mental health project in response to the dire need for this service in Liberia and in accordance with our charism.
