Manguzi Hospital is situated in South Africa, tucked in the corner formed by the Indian Ocean and the Mozambique border. Founded by the Methodist Church in 1948 and still maintaining a Christian ethos, Manguzi is perhaps one of the best functioning examples of the District health system in action. Manguzi is a 280 bed District (level 1) Hospital, belonging to the Kwa-Zulu Natal Department of Health. Outpatients is by far the busiest section of the hospital seeing approximately 3500 patients per month. OPD includes a Resus Unit (RU) which is used for critically ill medical and surgical patients.
