In Kenya, under the newly devolved health sector, Hospitals are categorised into six groups. These hospitals in various levels are dedicated to providing healthcare services to patients according to the magnitude of the illness. Here are the six categories of hospitals in Kenya

1. Level 1(Local Medical Centres)

These are the basic level medical centers found at the community level. They are mostly established by qualified community health practitioners. They provide basic medical attention such as consultation and issuance of simple drugs such as pain killers and basic antibiotics.

2. Level 2 (Dispensaries)

These are dispensaries established by the government, community members, or NGOs meant to provide basic medical services at the community level.

3. Level 3 (Health Centres)

These are health centers found at the sub-county level, they provide medical services such as consultancy, prescription, treatment, and dressing.

4. Level 4 Hospitals (Primary Referrals)

These are the Sub-County hospitals found at various sub-counties which were formerly known as district hospitals. They provide advanced medical care and have wards where patients can be admitted.
