Tenwek Hospital is currently in the process of constructing a permanent outpatient clinic in Bomet town. This clinic will serve to reduce the amount of travel necessary for local patients that require routine/repetitive care, and increasing access to early primary and preventative care. Check back later for more details including location, opening date and available services.
In 2013 Tenwek sent several surgical teams to South Sudan, including trips to orphanages in Torit & Nyamllel and a trip to Werkok hospital. Each trip lasted two weeks and included medical clinics, health education for children and local midwives, and surgical cases performed at local government hospitals & Werkok. Teams included an attending physician and PAACS residents. Although future goals include 5 surgical outreach trips per year, conflict in South Sudan prevented further trips in 2014.
The Eye Unit made five extended surgical outreaches to East Pokot, Samburu, Meru, Aweil (S Sudan), and Tonj (S Sudan) in 2013, performing over 700 cataract and other eye surgeries. These extended outreaches enhanced the ministries already present and active in each of these locations.
