Dreamland Mission Hospital, part of the IcFEM mission, provides care for the rural community in the Mount Elgon and Bungoma county of Western Kenya. It sees 40,000 patients a year and is staffed by over 100 Kenyan clinical and support staff as well as UK volunteers. As well as inpatients, it runs a comprehensive outpatient service, including a 24/7 assessment by clinical officers, basic laboratory testing, pharmacy, orthopaedics, physiotherapy, child welfare clinics, family planning, ante-natal and post-natal care.
