OUR HISTORY

Family Health University College started in a garage at 51 Guggisberg Street, Korle Bu, Korle Gonno, Mamprobi in 1997 as a Diagnostic Centre. It grew into a hospital and was later moved to Zoti road in a rented premises and now to its permanent location at Teshie, directly opposite the Kofi Annan International Peace Keeping Training Centre. As the hospital grew, the need to train our own health personnel saw the establishment of the Nursing and Midwifery School and also Ghana’s Premier Private Medical School. In 2016, the institution was given a University status and formally became known as Family Health University College.
