The Baptist Medical Centre in Nalerigu is a respected mission hospital located in the Northern Region of Ghana. It was founded through the joint efforts and vision of the Ghanaian Baptist Convention (Gold Coast Baptist Conference) and the International Mission Board (Foreign Mission Board at that time) in 1958. In 2014, the IMB handed the hospital over to the Ghana Baptist Convention who now manage and maintain it.
Currently the BMC is a 123 bed hospital whose reputation brings people from as far south as Accra, as far east as Togo and Nigeria, and as far north as Burkina Faso and Mali. Most recent yearly statistics are as follows: 60,000 outpatient visits, 10,000 inpatients, 1,200 major operations, and 2,500-3,000 minor procedures.
Over those nearly 60 years, it is estimated that well over 3 million patients have visited the hospital and around 70 Baptist churches have been planted in northern Ghana.
We believe that our service earns hearing for the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ, and we are looking forward to the future as we continue to serve Christ by serving the people of West Africa.
