About the Hospital
In 2020, CURE International joined with the Zimbabwe Orthopedic Trust to form CURE Children’s Hospital of Zimbabwe. The hospital is the newest center in the CURE network, opening its doors in April 2021 and specializing in the care of children living with physical disabilities. The hospital was refurbished by the Zimbabwe Orthopedic Trust in partnership with the Zimbabwean government and is located adjacent to United Bulawayo Hospital. The hospital has 40 beds and a newly constructed operating theater block with three operating rooms.
The CURE Children’s Hospital of Zimbabwe is the first hospital in Zimbabwe that is dedicated to serve vulnerable children and families through the provision of orthopedic and spiritual care.
