The hospital was established in 1926 by Dr. George Way Harley and his wife Winifred. It had to close after severe damage by looting and a rocket attack during the summer of 2003, but reopened in March 2004.
In 2005, the hospital has two physicians, an ophthalmologist, and a general practitioner who also carries out surgery. Services provided by the hospital include an outpatient clinic, obstetrics, pediatrics, and laboratory services. It also runs an Eye Project with a jeep-equipped outreach team to bring patients for operations such as cataract removal.
