Located in the rural Kumi district of Eastern Uganda, Kumi Hospital was originally founded as a leprosy center by the Church Missionary Society in 1929. In 1997, Kumi Hospital started offering outreach programs and outpatient care for a wide range of medical conditions. It has 350 beds and is a leading healthcare provider in the region. Kumi operates as a non-profit entity with the intent to provide affordable care to all those who require it.
To attract and retain qualified medical staff, the project team was engaged to work on an employee morale project. It focused on identifying areas of motivation and satisfaction for the nursing staff. The goal of this project was to establish alignment of organizational policies to nursing staff morale and construct a feasible long term strategy that Kumi Hospital could use to improve and maintain nursing staff motivation.
