Malindi District and County Hospital

Malindi is a smaller town in the coastal region and very popular with Italians, in-fact referred as ”little Italy”. The beaches are among the finest in East Africa. The hospital is smaller compared to Mombasa; but currently elevated due to the services and population it’s attending to.

The popularity Malindi derives is mainly from the Program Residence in Malindi – it is literally on the beach: you walk from the residence, through a tropical neighborhood and you are on the beach with surfable wave tides.
