Our Teaching hospital aspires to bring a difference in the quality of training, research and health care service provision in the country through prioritizing research, student centered training and patient centered health care delivery.  Madda Walabu University Goba Hospital has trained thousands of health care professionals since 2007, who are serving the country in different capacities and played a significant role in alleviating the shortage of health care professionals in the country.

The provision of health care service was started in a very small and old hospital owned from Oromia regional health bureau. The university attempted to manage the challenge of the infrastructure through expansion and renovation parts of the old hospital as a temporary solution, however to alleviate the challenge at the grassroots, the University is almost completing G-plus eight huge modern Hospital, except for furnishing with medical equipments, which is still our area of threat.  The hospital management is working and opens to work with the governmental organizations, non-governmental organizations and the community to secure furnishing the hospital with the needed medical equipments. Our teaching hospital with the young, energetic and vibrant staff and leadership is committed to continue hard work to improve the quality of health service provision and quality education and research in all disciplines.

We will be pleased to have you join us here at Madda Walabu University, Goba Teaching hospital and you will find the information you need on this website.
