Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital
Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) is the second National Referral Hospital in Kenya. It is located in Eldoret, in the Rift Valley Province of Kenya. It was opened in 1917 as a cottage hospital and it was not until the establishment of Moi University in 1984 and the subsequent establishment of the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University that the hospital elevated from a district hospital to a teaching and referral institution.
The hospital has an 800 bed capacity and received patients from western Kenya, parts of Eastern Uganda, and the southern Sudan. The AMPATH Centre is connected to MTRH and the staff work very closely together. Students from Moi University School of Medicine learn at this hospital, and students and residents from the AMPATH Consortium institutions are also often found on the wards learning from and teaching their Kenyan counterparts.
