About the Hospital

Lydia looks out a window at CURE KenyaIn 1998, CURE International, in cooperation with the African Inland Church, opened the AIC-CURE International Hospital in Kijabe, Kenya. Along with being CURE’s first hospital, CURE Kenya was Africa’s first orthopedic pediatric teaching hospital for children with disabilities. The 30-bed hospital provides care for children suffering from a wide range of orthopedic conditions, such as clubfoot, burn contractures, osteomyelitis, and other acquired or congenital conditions. The hospital also conducts mobile clinics to identify children in remote areas who can be treated at the hospital and to provide follow-up care for those who have received surgery.

Located in the Rift Valley city of Kijabe, the hospital attracts patients from every region of the country. Through the training of surgeons, nurses, and healthcare professionals, CURE Kenya aims to improve the country’s overall capacity to treat children born and living with disability.

Kenya Orthopedic Residency

The orthopedic training program at CURE Kenya is certified by the College of Surgeons of East, Central, and Southern Africa (COSECSA) and managed in cooperation with the Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS). It is widely recognized as one of the leading orthopedic surgical training programs in East Africa. Doctors participating in the residency program spend five years training at CURE Kenya, the Kijabe Medical Center and, whenever possible, other CURE hospitals in Africa. Upon completion of the program, the orthopedic surgeons continue to work at a CURE hospital or another African hospital for an additional length of time.
