Welcome Message from the CEO
As a surgeon, restoring quality health is the number one instinct which has also been my drive this far in health management. Providing health solutions in a competent and caring environment, and complementing the efforts of the public hospitals, are the core values of our existence.
Medicine is advancing, with each day presenting new cases that require advanced diagnostic equipment. Private health facilities face this as their number one challenge because equipment is expensive on top of all the taxations.
Our only channel, I believe, of providing quality health care as medical and health personnel, especially in least developed countries like Uganda, is in partnerships. I have seen this work for CASE Medical Centre that has managed a case of blocked Cartoid Artery with the help of a team of specialists from Pecs University Hungary; spine surgeries with the spine team from America and many others.
We take pride in specialist brains here in Uganda but these are nothing without platforms for continuous medical education and equipment. The young and promising breed of doctors is banking on us to furnish them with up-to-date skills that meet the day-to-day global advances in health and medicine. Patients are equally informed, not only from finding the internet highly resourceful but also from being part of the heightened level of medical tourism, thus important for us as well to level up.
CASE Medical Centre attained ISO 9001 Certification adding it to the hierarchy of standard operating environments as far as health care in Africa is concerned. Aside from possessing standard health management capability, this certification is a green light for health groups, facilities and personnel to partner and get involved in uplifting health care in Africa and most importantly COMESA region.
Please be part of this boost.

Dr A. Kato Ssebbaale, Founder/CEO
Date of birth 20 December 1963, Mulago Hospital, Kampala, Uganda
Married 1 spouse with 4 children
Dr Ssebbaale attended Makerere University and graduated with honours in MBChB in 1988. A year later he put his skills to practise interning at Mulago Hospital. He worked as a Medical Officer in the Urology Department under the direct supervision of two consultant Urologists.
He further worked as an Assistant Lecturer in Makerere University from 1994 to 1996 and in 1996 was promoted to a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Surgery. He also served as Assistant Secretary to the Association of Surgeons of Uganda (ASOU) during 1996.
In 1995, Dr Ssebbaale mastered in Medicine (Surgery) and in the same year founded and started operations in a clinic he registered as Case Clinic located on Bombo Road at the time. He opened doors to his clinic offering free medical care to Watoto Children below the age of 18 – especially victims of the Kony scourge. This relationship later grew into an ongoing partnership with Watoto Child Care Ministries.
He enrolled in a postgraduate programme in Management at Uganda Management Institute to bridge the gap in his management competence and in 2001 emerged with a Diploma in Management.
His career grew further in 2003 after pursuing and majoring in Laparascopic Surgery (WALS) at Appollo Hospitals in Hyderabad. This experience enlightened his vision for his constantly growing Clinic.
In 2000, his entrepreneurial drive had him start an indigenous Health Maintenance Organisation, Case Medcare Ltd, a new concept in Uganda medical industry that has since grown to managing health care needs of more than 20,000 members with growing hope of pushing this farther.
As demand rose in 2003, the simple office practice referred to as Case Clinic outmoded its clinic stature maturing into a medical centre. This centre has since grown into a leading medical service provider in Uganda. Currently, Case Medical Centre is a 75-bed, fully serviced hospital within the city of Kampala. The hospital receives referrals from all over the country and neighbouring countries, Kenya, Sudan, Zaire (DRC), Rwanda and Burundi.
Among notable achievements, in October 2000, Dr Sebbaale pioneered haemodialysis treatment for the first time in Uganda for patients with end stage renal failure.
In 2004, he started Specialist Laparoscopic Services in Mulago Hospital, National Referral and Teaching Hospital and performed the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy in Mulago Hospital.
He has written five publications on various topics ranging from Urethrotomy, surgical camps, postoperative nasogastric suction and management of superficial burn wounds in children.
CASE Medcare is a Health Management Organisation, an insurance arm of CASE Medical Centre incorporated with the Registrar of Companies since 2002 and licensed by the Insurance Regulatory Authority of Uganda.
This arm is the vehicle through which we package health care services for corporate institutions, families and individuals catering for clients who desire to secure their health at a fraction of the actual cost.
With corporate institutions, we are open to both mid-market and small companies but also to NGOs. Ugandans today have shown great interest in securing their health and this has forced us to equally zoom into families and individual packages.
As Healthcare Managers, we aim for smoothness in healthcare management. To achieve this, we embark on strategies to manage the increasing cost of care, wellness programme implementation and innovative care delivery models such as designing our products in such a way that they appeal to clients cost effectively.
Innovatively, we aim to keep abreast of advancing technology, holding a social media platform on Facebook and a website that allows for instant feedback to and from our clientele. As all technology out there, this enables us respond to our client needs to their satisfaction.
As far as corporate social responsibility is concerned, we pride ourselves in our relationship with the Watoto Child Care Ministries that started from Case Medical Centre’s inception. This project is currently being managed by Case Medcare Ltd. managing healthcare needs of the Watoto Children below the age of 18 years old. These children have since enjoyed plastic reconstructive surgery at Case Medical Centre – particularly victims of the Kony rebel scourge – although we equally offer them material support every now and then e.g. uniforms for the choirs.
Together with the Kiwatule Rotary Club, Case Medcare brings healthcare closer to the urban poor through the Kiwatule Outreach Services.
Our day to day operations revolve around helping our consumers understand the value of the product they are buying and how to use it effectively. Managing employer and consumer expectations is one of our biggest challenges in this era of prolific consumer knowledge guided by the internet.
It is among our future plans to go beyond the boundaries of Uganda, deeper into the East African Community and COMESA region, but until then, we trust to remain your fluent healthcare managers in Uganda.
