About St. John’s Hospital and Fertility Centre

St John’s Hospital and Fertility Centre was established as a private health care facility on 23rd November 2012.

The Hospital envisions to become a centre of excellence in the area of Reproductive Health Care with the establishment of a modern health centre and provision of quality healthcare services. The hospital has recently launched a telemedicine platform called the ‘FON DR’ where the general public can access health advisory by calling +233501258518.
