Maua Methodist Hospital is an agency of the Methodist Church of Kenya and serves as a regional medical center in the Maua area of Meru County.
Serving a population of over 450,000 persons - including 110,000 children - the hospital provides general medical services including maternity, surgery, dental and optical.
In addition to the "in house" services, the hospital has an extensive Community Health Department (CHD)
which includes palliative care, operation of a clinic at Ndoleli, supervising emergency food relief . Additionally, it oversees an Early Childhood Development program based at a local public school which provides a good start to AIDS orphans who live in the area.
The CHD also is extensively involved with teams of people from churches around the world who want to come to Maua to make a difference. Teams are involved with medical clinics, construction of small homes for orphans, deworming of children in school and elsewhere, delivering and planting "kitchen gardens", and other activities.
