The main section of the hospital is where the patients needing the most critical care are admitted and all post-op care is done in this area. The second section close by is the original building when the medical work was started. In this area there are 88 beds in several wards and buildings, modern laboratory, out-patient screening area, offices, ART Clinic, Under 5 Clinic, a classroom for skill training and a teaching room. The rest of the area is accommodation for women awaiting delivery, some out-patients who come from a distance and some of the relatives of the patients. In addition a new area has just been developed where the majority of the relatives who accompany the patients who come from long distances stay. Two wells have been drilled in this area and shelters erected to help the many relatives who stay in this area.
At the Colony they have their own clinic, kitchen, offices and also a tannery and shoe-making workshop where special shoes are made for the leprosy patients. Many of the people staying in this area are admitted for longer periods of time.
Patients coming for medical care are not charged any fees for any services and those admitted are fed and cared for during their stay at hospital. Many patients keep coming from even greater distances each year for medical help, especially for surgery as the Hospital has excellent Theater facilities and a very qualified staff. One of the important new factors is that Chitokoloki now has a modern ICU (Intensive Care Unit) which has monitoring equipment and oxygen concentrators etc. to meet special situations. Recently a new modern theater and storage areas were added and piped oxygen and suction now is available in all three theatres. A separate bulk storage area at the rear of the hospital is for storing the extra medical supplies and equipment.
