The Hospitaller Order of St. John of God is an International Catholic Health / Charity Organisation with more than 250 Centres and Hospitals in over 50 countries worldwide. The services were extended to Cameroon in 1968 through the invitation of late Nzo Ekankgaki, a native of Nguti-Cameroon. Today the brothers are present  in three Diocese and regions of the country : St. John of God Catholic Hospital Nguti in the S.W Region (Manfe Diocese), created in 1970, St. John of God Intergrated Health Centre, Batibo in the N.W. Region (Bamenda Arch Diocese), Created in 1984,  Centre de Sante et Orthopedique Catholique de St Jean de Dieu, Boko village,Douala, (Douala Arch Diocese), created in 2010 and St. John of God Catholic Health centre Yassa (Diocese of Douala) October 2014, being the most recent created centre, all with the aim of providing affordable quality services to the sick, the poor and the underprivileged of the society.  

The extension of services to Yassa was thanks to the prior and present generals and provincials (African Province) (Br. Pascal Piles Fernandez and Donatus Forkan; and Br. Simon BeKaar, Late Br. Patrick Nshamdze, Br. Robert Chakana and Br. Batholomew Kamara) respectively. A piece of land was acquired in Yassa village under Japoma health district of Douala and a pioneer structure of 11 rooms and 3 external toilets was mounted.

On October 7th 2014 Br. Linus Tangu, provincial counselor and his team formally opened the doors of the newly constructed structure by Juan CIUDAD ONGD to the population for healthcare. This was with the financial and material contributions from Nguti, Boko, Batibo centres and other hospitallers communities.
