Cardiothoracic Center Update: Resident Housing Completed & Funding Gap Closed!

The Cardiothoracic Center at Tenwek Hospital (CTC) will be a state-of-the-art unit to care for patients needing life-saving heart, esophageal, and lung cancer surgeries. The 175-bed CTC will house six cardiac operating rooms, a cardiac catheterization lab, an endoscopy suite with four procedure rooms, and a chapel.

Hospital leaders dedicate the recently completed Resident Housing.

The apartments for physician trainees are now open and occupied. The infrastructure upgrades required to build the CTC – including building excavation, electrical service, sewage treatment, and water purification – are well underway.

A funder has stepped forward to pledge all the remaining funds needed to complete construction of the CTC! Hospital leaders expect construction to begin in May and are seeking an exemption from the usual 16% government tax. Please pray with us for a favorable decision.
