The Sean Gilbert Memorial Medical Center
In late 2018, One City Ministries embarked on a God-sized goal and began planning the construction of Phase I of The Sean Gilbert Memorial Medical Center. Named after our beloved son, who passed away in 2007, this Medical Center will be an epicenter for diagnosis, research, restoration, healing, education, and so much more for local Ugandans! As evidenced by the growing demand for our weekly medical clinics, the need for preventative empowerment, treatment and improved diagnostics in and around the Light Village continues to grow.
We broke ground on the Center in July 2019 and our progress is garnering much attention throughout Uganda. Slated to open in late 2021 the Center will be a transformative game-changer for the many communities in the large Mbale District. "Because treatable diseases will truly be treated and more serious illnesses will be properly diagnosed many lives will be saved!" says Bishop Tukole, One City’s Theological Training Director. "The Center's goal is to achieve better overall health and vitality throughout Mbale through improved diagnosis, education and health training. This will help all become more productive and capable of handling life's challenges in-spite of a very tough set of conditions", say One City's Founders, Mike and Deb Gilbert.
