Our History

Bavaria Hospital is one of the multiple Catholic assets that constitute the Mary Hill Catholic Center Okigwe. The site was conceived by His Excellency Most Rev Dr Anthony Ilonu in 1987 when he appointed Rev Prof Jerome Okonkwo to acquire a place on the highlands between Nkoto and Ubahu for the proposed Mary Hill Center for Pastoral, Health and Technology. Rev Fr Okonkwo tried to actualize this dream but later met a deadlock when he noticed that the place was a center of a long standing dispute between Umunaga/Umuamadi Ubahu and Ezekiel O. Ezeagu/Nkoto in Ihube. Both towns contended the site to be their traditional ancestral abode. Jerome Okonkwo tried his best but abdicated the venture when he noticed the quantum of troubles involved.
Rev Fr Reginald Nnamdi took over the place from Fr Okonkwo but soon gave up and succumbed to some disputant’s maneuvers and threats.

Message from the Builder and Cordinator

Dear friend,

Welcome to Bavaria Catholic specialist hospital website.
On the 10th of December 2016, we welcomed catholic faithful’s and the entire citizens of Okigwe senatorial zone, southeast Nigeria, to the launch of our multi-Specialist Hospital. In a little over a year, we’ve grown much bigger than we were, providing high quality and affordable primary, secondary and tertiary medical care to the poor, downtrodden and the good people of Okigwe.Our Hospital is primarily a facility of gratitude and an expression of love. Gratitude to the people of Bayern who sponsored my years of studies overseas in Munich. It has become a testament to humanity that God loves all equally and our health is his concern.
Our aim is to uplift the health-care delivery where it is needed the most especially in Okigwe. Ideato north and south and Umunneochi and Isuikwuato Local Government areas. It is our goal to offer the best affordable healthcare with commitment and empathy.
