A state-of-the-art maternal and neonatal facility
is under construction at Mulago National Referral Hospital. It will be a 320-bed capacity facility complimenting the over 1900 bed hospital. This project is estimated to cost $ 33 million.
Gastroschisis vs Omphalocele
Within this project, the physician and nurse-midwife will be provided with modern technology to better monitor both mother and baby. This advance is important because the obstetricians and neonatologists will "watch" the development of the child and will have the capacity to anticipate complications such as spina bifida, omphalocele, or gastroschisis.
