About PCEA Chogoria Hospital

Chogoria hospital was started by the Scottish missionaries back in 1922 with the help of Mr and Mrs. Irvine being in charge. Chogoria hospital is on a side-road that branches off Embu - Meru highway about 2km from the highway. Chogoria hospital was built in a serene environment around 200km north of Nairobi city. It is situated within the fast-growing Chogoria township in the Mwimbi division, Maara district in Tharaka - Nithi county.

The first permanent building of the hospital was built in 1926. The hospital was then established under the management of the Scottish missionaries and later the ownership was transferred from the church of Scotland to the Presbyterian Church of East Africa (PCEA) in 1956.
