Work is continuing on Kateri Medical Service's next clinic in Gusau. We are partnering with the Anglican Diocese of Gusau to build Graceland Anglican Hospital. Gusau is the capital city of Zamfara State in northern Nigeria.
Phase 1 of the new hospital will be completed in October, 2018. We will have a Dedication Service for the new hospital and then follow that up with a week long free medical outreach. After that, we will open the new hospital for business. As with all of our clinics, we charge on a sliding scale according to the patient's ability to pay.

Dr. Okeme Arome tells about the work of Kateri Clinic. We serve rural people who live about 90 minutes drive from an urban center where there are more advanced medical facilities and medical specialists. Most of the residents of Kateri and surrounding villages cannot afford the medical care available in cities. So our doctors provide basic healthcare for a wide variety of ailments, including malaria, typhoid, dysentery, child birth problems and road traffic accident victims (RTAs). Our doctors are generalists who must improvise to offer a wide range of services which are key otherwise available to the rural poor.
The “Nancy Mason Memorial Health Centre” in Iburu is dedicated to the memory of the late Nancy Mason.
when she was a child, Nancy dreamed of being a missionary. Her missionary dreams were put on hold when she married after graduating from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in nursing in 1962.
Besides raising her own children, Nancy worked as a school nurse in an elementary school in South Windsor, Connecticut for 26 years, overseeing the health of more than 500 young children. Nancy always had a heart for children.
Nancy came down with breast cancer in 1983 and fought a long and courageous battle. She died in 1996. In 2013, Nancy’s husband, the Rev. Alan Mason, donated funds to Kateri Medical Services to cover the cost of construction of the new clinic in Iburu. In a joint decision by Kateri Medical Services and the Diocese of Kaduna, we dedicated the new clinic in Nancy’s memory.
At the Dedication Service in July 2016, Bishop Timothy Yahaya, head of the Diocese of Kaduna, told the congregation: “This Clinic is dedicated to the memory of a woman who wanted to be a missionary when she was a small girl. She was a school nurse who dedicated her life to caring for children. In this clinic, her work will go on. And she is now serving as a missionary here in this place dedicated to her name."
