The hospital carters for the entire population of the Zambia Police Service which stands at 18,000, although this is beyond the figures since it also extends its services to the surrounding communities and other areas such as Chilanga and Chongwe.

Other services are Tuberculosis, Physiotherapy, Radiography, Scanning, Ex-ray, Laboratory tests, Nutrition, Environmental health, Social welfare and counselling.
The hospital is fully run by police officers who are qualified in different fields that include; Doctors, Clinical officers, Physiotherapists, Nurses, Radiographers, Laboratory Technicians, Pharmacists and Midwives among others.
