The Outpatient Department at Tenwek Hospital sees between 121,000-150,000 patients every year. Clinical Officers function as the primary providers of the general care clinics, while Medical Officers and Attending Physicians do consultations and staff the specialty clinics. Outpatient Department functions as the referral gate for non-emergency clients that may require specialist care.
In the Outpatient Department the Hospital's motto, We Treat Jesus Heals, is taken very seriously. The staff strive to understand and respond to the patient's spiritual needs along with their medical needs. A chaplain works in the department on a full time basis and gives messages of hope to the waiting patients every day.
