Oasis Medical Centre is a health development initiative that was established in 2005 by missionary Pia Lind from Sweden and Kirsi Nyrhinen from Finland who have been working with an indigenous African church Jesus Celebration Church since 1993 in the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa. Oasis Medical Centre was initiated in 2005 as a social program responding to the health issues facing the coastal town of Mtwapa in Kilifi county, especially with HIV/Aids. It is managed by a Board of Trustees of professionals with a main goal to reach the community with the love of Christ and make a sustainable change in peoples’ lives. Their services have since then spread beyond the boundaries of Kilifi county to other coastal counties such as Mombasa, Kinango and Malindi. The main aim of this project is to bring much needed help to the people of this community through awareness of HIV/AIDS disease, how to implement behaviour change, mother-to-child care, good nutrition, the importance of hygiene and clean water, family-planning and small-scale business training for self-sustenance.
From a small dispensary unit in 2005 Oasis Medical Centre has grown to become a level 4 hospital with out and in-patient services with over 50 members of staff. The out and in-patient treatment and care services are made effective and efficient by competent staff lead by a resident Medical Officer caring for an average of 100 clients daily. Special week days are located for specialized doctors such as gynaecologist and dentist. The goal of the institution is the holistic healing and development of a person’s spirit, soul and body.
