Jimma Hospital was established 60 years ago during the Italian Invasion. It is the only specialized referral hospital in southwest Ethiopia. It is located 3km from town. In 1984, following the defeat of the Italian force, the Ethiopian Ministry of Health coordinated Jimma Hospital as a hospital for the people. It became training center for doctors, nurses, pharmacy technicians, and laboratory technicians, although it’s initial purpose of establishment had been to serve the invading soldiers. From 1991-2001 the Oromiya Regional Government Health Bureau ran the hospital. Since 2001, Jimma University has taken over administration and performed renovation and budget and service improvements. Jimma University hospital is a referral hospital. There are 350 beds including surgery, pediatrics, gynecology & obstetrics, internal medicine, psychiatry, ophthalmology and other departments.
