Medical Services and Facilities
With few doctors offices offering a private family practice option for people in the Kasai provinces, the Good Shepherd Hospital and outpatient clinics address that need for adults through their internal medicine departments (there is a separate pediatrics department). A cadre of eight doctors treat a broad range of diseases and trauma not requiring surgery — malaria, AIDS, tuberculosis, diabetes, hypertension, gout, anemia, typhoid, meningitis, respiratory infections, ear-nose-and-throat, skin diseases, dysentery and other gastrointestinal diseases, parasites, etc.
The Good Shepherd Hospital has an extensive surgery schedule. It is widely known for its leadership in fistula repair. Major workloads include surgeries of the digestive tract, orthopedic and trauma surgeries, reconstructive surgeries and OB-Gyn surgeries.

• X-Ray and Ultrasound
• Administration and Billing
• Emergency Room
• Tshilala Benyi (patient family hostel)
• Guest House
