Chogoria Hospital in Kenya is a 300-bed facility that sees 450 outpatients each day, and the current staff is not able to keep up with this high demand. Join the medical and spiritual ministries at Chogoria by serving as an orthopaedic surgeon. Approximately 70 percent of surgical patients at Chogoria have orthopaedic injuries. Although our general surgeons are doing their best, we have a great need for the skills of an orthopaedic surgeon.
In 1922, Scottish missionaries founded a medical outpost in the central highlands of Kenya, just east of Mount Kenya. During the next 80 years, the outpost grew into two boarding schools and Chogoria Hospital, a reputable 300-bed facility. Each of the ministries was effective in spreading the gospel of Christ throughout the area. In 2004, Chogoria Hospital came under Kenyan management. While the hospital has continued to grow and provide effective medical care, the number of fully-trained, missions-minded doctors is small. Currently, only one full-time, residency-trained doctor works at Chogoria.
