St Francis Xavier Hospital

This 118-bed hospital provides vital medical care, across many departments, to patients from a catchment area population of 207,000, as well as those referred from other regions.

In addition, it has become a practical teaching hospital where medical and nursing students from the Korlebu teaching hospital, as well as from the nursing school in Cape Coast and other different schools in Ghana, send their students to get their practical experience.

St Francis Xavier Hospital is owned and run by the Archdiocese of the Cape Coast and Sisters Hospitallers. The Sisters Hospitallers took the final management role of the clinic in 1965 and it has been developed through the years into a district hospital.
