The Town of Chogoria, Kenya
Chogoria is a town of nearly 30,000 in central Kenya, located just east of Mount Kenya National Park. The town has grown significantly since the Chogoria Hospital was established in 1922 by Dr. Clive Irvine, a Scottish Presbyterian missionary. Chogoria Hospital draws patients from throughout the region, where access to healthcare is otherwise lacking, and has become one of three training sites in the country for Family Medicine residency training.
At Chogoria Hospital, which is now operated by the Presbyterian Church of East Africa, the good news is preached while urgently needed medical care is given. The Serge team serves at the hospital, providing compassionate, high-quality medical care to rural patients, while training and discipling a new generation of Kenyan interns and residents. The Family medicine residents will extend the reach of gospel-driven whole-person care throughout Kenya and the region.
Building the Team
The Serge team in Chogoria seeks doctors and medical professionals who will creatively train young Kenyans in clinical care, while assisting in capacity building at Chogoria Hospital. Current priorities are for an obstetrician, pediatrician, and family medicine doctor.
- For doctors to join the team;
- For patients to encounter Jesus through the loving care they receive;
- For lives to be saved;
- For a strong, healthy partnership between the hospital and the local church.
