Maua Methodist Hospital (MMH) is an institution of the Methodist Church in Kenya, established in 1928 by British Methodist Missionaries in obedience to the great commission of Christ (Matthew 28:19-20). From that humble and modest start, the hospital has grown to be a Regional Referral Hospital in Meru County, providing holistic services to a wide catchment area and offering training of health care workers. Maua Methodist Hospital has also become an important hub for community health and development services.

The General Superintendent of the East Africa District of the Methodist Church observed in his 1918 annual report the need for a healing ministry in Meru. In response to that report, the British Methodist Church approved the building of a 50-bed hospital in 1928. Construction was done in the next 2 years and the hospital was officially opened on July 15th 1930. The facility was given the name ‘Berresford Memorial Hospital’ in remembrance of Thomas Berresford, a young man who had planned to become a doctor but unfortunately died at the age of 22. The family donated the university fees for Thomas to the Methodist Church to build a hospital.
