About the Hospital

Konkola Mine Hospital is run by Konkola Copper Mines Ltd. It can very easily boast to be one of the more well equipped hospitals in Zambia and rightly so. This is probably as a result of its recent refurbishment in readiness for the construction of the Konkola Deep Mine Project.

It has most standard modern equipment including Haematological, Biochemistry and Immunology analysers, blood gas analysers and a digital xray unit complete with image intensifiers.
