The Makerere University Hospital used to occupy the present Makerere University Police Post. In 1972, the then Sick-Bay, which was called Students Health-Service was transferred to its present premises. These premises came under possession of the University at the expulsion of the Asians by the then President of Uganda Field Marshal Idi Amin Dada. The then Nile Nursing Home was purchased by the University as a large and alternative place for the University Hospital; able to cater for a wider Makerere University Community. On 16th February, 1978, President Idi Amin visited the Sick-Bay and he crowned it the Hospital status; thus the name Makerere University Hospital.
