Bomet Annex – Tenwek’s New Outpatient Clinic

Advancing Tenwek’s Mission into Bomet

When working people in Bomet experience illness or injury, they would like to receive the quality care Tenwek Hospital is known for. But they cannot afford to sacrifice a day’s work and pay to visit the hospital clinic. As a result, they are missing the great opportunity for physical and spiritual healing that Tenwek offers.


The Bomet Annex will provide a full range of outpatient services in a convenient venue. The facility is being thoughtfully and strategically renovated to provide clinical space and services to support both current needs and future growth. The Bomet-based clinic will attract new patients while helping relieve congestion and improve efficiency at the hospital. Just as Tenwek’s regional network of dispensaries delivers compassionate care in Christ’s name to people where they live, the Bomet Annex will embody Tenwek’s mission and work in that city.

Since 2014, Friends of Tenwek has already raised and invested nearly $150,433 to help Tenwek Hospital purchase, renovate, and begin to equip the outpatient clinic. This support has included acquisition of the land and former nursing home facility, renovations, and purchase of diagnostic equipment. With the end of the project in sight, FOT is dedicated to raising $56,000 before the close of the 2017 calendar year.



FOT Will Mirror Tenwek’s Investment


In a sign of how strategically important the Bomet Annex is to Tenwek, the hospital has dedicated funds for the project in its operational budget. We are partners in this with Tenwek Hospital– FOT funds will mirror an equal investment by Tenwek.

Earlier this year, FOT announced its commitment to raise an additional $100,000 so that renovations could be completed and Tenwek could open the clinic. As of November 1, we have received just over $44,000 towards this goal, with gifts received from fourteen individuals and foundations. The inspiring generosity FOT donors have demonstrated over the years persuades us that we can reach this goal by year’s end. Your gift today will have eternal impact.
