Bomet Annex Nears Completion!

Tenwek Hospital will soon bring its healing mission and Gospel message to Bomet, Kenya, a bustling city which is home to more than 110,000 people. The hospital’s outpatient clinic is expected to open shortly, as soon as site work is complete.

The need for a city-based clinic is urgent. The hospital’s outpatient clinic treats, on average, 430 patients each day. The new satellite clinic will reduce the strain on the hospital-based clinic and enable many more people to receive care for chronic and emergency medical conditions.
