Created in 1989, Kumba Baptist Health Centre (KBHC) is today one of the fastest growing urban health centers of the CBC Health Services. The Health Centre has the potential of becoming a big hospital. In March 2018, KBHC had 165 staff and two resident medical doctors. KBHC has a well-equipped lab, a theatre with advanced equipment, and a modern infrastructure capable of admitting 500 patients. The Health Centre has a bed capacity of 49 spread in four wards. The supervising hospital, Baptist Hospital Mutengene (BHM) pays a doctor’s support visit to the Health Centre every month. KBHC operates a satellite store of the CBC Central Pharmacy under the Performance Based Financing (PBF) project. The satellite store also serves the government and other private health facilities in the area. Patients seen at the Health Centre come from Kumba and the other parts of Meme Division, parts of Ndian Division, Manyu, and Kupe Manenguba divisions and from the Litoral Region (Mbanga, Loum, Nkongsamba, etc). KBHC operates 24/7 and sees an average of 5,000 patients every month.
