Tenwek Hospital

We Treat, Jesus Heals

Tenwek Hospital, a ministry of World Gospel Mission and Africa Gospel Church, is located in Bomet, Kenya. From its humble beginning as a single-nurse dispensary in 1937, Tenwek has grown to a 260-bed hospital offering specialty care to patients from local and regional areas as well as from throughout the country.

Tenwek is one of the world’s leading mission hospitals. It attracts skilled surgeons, physicians, and other medical staff for short-term appointments, as well as medical missionaries and their families, who devote themselves to the hospital’s work for long-term assignments.

The hospital’s motto, We Treat, Jesus Heals, underscores its mission: to share the Gospel by providing medical services in the name of Jesus Christ. As patients’ physical needs are addressed, they and their families also receive prayer, spiritual counsel, and support from the hospital chaplains.

In pursuit of its mission and ministry to patients’ physical and spiritual needs, Tenwek sponsors the following initiatives:

Tenwek Hospital is one of the greatest evangelistic outreaches I know of anywhere in the world today.
