About Us

The Federal Medical Centre Katsina was initially conceived in the mid-70s by the defunct Kaduna State Government to provide specialist medical Services in the Katsina and Daura emirates which constitutes the present Katsina State. Construction started in the early 80s which include 2No Out Patient Departments (OPDs), 2No Wards, 13 Housing Units, water and electricity connection. When Katsina State was created in 1987, the hospital was taken over by the new state for completion. The hospital covers a total land area of 221,028 Hectares (546,182 Acres).

On 29 October 1996, the hospital was handed over to the Federal Government to serve as a Federal Medical Centre in conformity with Federal Government's policy of establishing a Medical Centre in states that do not have teaching hospitals. It is over years now since the agreement for the takeover of the Centre was signed and a lot of development has been recorded.
