Trace the Roots of our hospital

St. Joseph Hospital Jirapa was started in the convent of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary Congregation (FMM) in 1949 as a wound dressing centre for the people of Jirapa and its surrounding communities. In 1953, the then Catholic Mission of Tamale adopted and converted the wound dressing centre into a hospital to provide basic services in General Medicine, Deliveries, Surgery and Paediatrics; with the sole aim of extending the healing ministry of Christ to the poor and marginalized. Aside the clinical service, the Hospital was also mandated to train pupil nurses and midwives to the required standards of the regulatory bodies (Ministry of Health). It was also moved to its present site and managed solely and purely as a mission institution by the Church.

Our History

Their critical staffs were mainly expatriates. In 1956, the Mission entered into an Agency Agreement with the government of the then Gold Coast, now Ghana, where the government was required to provide such infrastructure, as may be required, and the emoluments of the requisite staff engaged and employed by the Mission. The Agency Agreement in its original form has remained till date, but its operations have substantially changed over the period.


The Catholic Health Service Trust (CHST) is a non-profit private healthcare provider that is under the ownership of the Catholic Church in Ghana. The CHST's institutional health facilities, including hospitals and clinics, have been in existence since the early 1950s. These facilities were established during a time of pressing need for healthcare services in the region, and have since been providing vital healthcare services to the local communities.

The training schools have assumed autonomy and the mode of engagement and employment of some key staff has altered. The specific objective of the hospital is to deliver accessible and quality healthcare services in a congenial atmosphere, to the optimum satisfaction of our clients through a well-motivated staff In the existence of St. Joseph Hospital for this over sixty years, trend has always been to celebrate our feast day in the month of May along with honouring our retirees who toiled so much for the service of the sick. On the 10th of March 1953, the Cornerstone of Jirapa Hospital was Laid by Mr. Burdon, the chief commissioner,Tamale.
