Hospital Management Team



Chief Executive Officer

Mr Justus M Marete
The Strategic Plan for 2019 - 2024 has been built with the focus of enabling MMH to play a significant role in the national pursuit of universal health care coverage and increasing the impact of its Medical Ministry of healing in the community. The range of services offered and decisions to offer new services are informed by reports of the Methodist Church Synod Health Committee, recent reports on community needs and information available in the health services sector in the region.
However, we recognize that the most important resource that the hospital has are the existing staff of the hospital and those who will be invited to serve in the newly identified areas. We are therefore focusing on training and equipping staff with the required skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for offering excellent services.
