President’s Message


Welcome to Negele Arsi General Hospital and Medical College!

We built this hospital to improve the health care and education in our community, and with you on our side, I am positive that we will succeed in our quest to set the Gold Standard in Patient Centered Care. This hospital grew from an intense need for health and a better quality of life in this community. From our humble beginnings, we have risen from the neglected piece of land to welcome you and the rest of the world into a campus where HOPE is always possible.

Your commitment reflects the Health, Opportunity, Progress and Education that can be achieved with the Gold Standard in Patient Care that we strive to give to every patient, every time.
