St. Mary’s Mission Hospital Mumias is a Catholic Mission Hospital with a history spanning 88 years. It is located 1.5km from Mumias town in Mumias West Sub-county, Kakamega County in the Western part of Kenya. It has good road linkages to Kakamega, Bungoma, Busia, Siaya and Vihiga Counties making it accessible to the entire Western region and extending into the Eastern parts of Uganda.

The hospital was established in 1932 by the Ursuline Sisters of Bergen who came to Mumias as missionaries. In the 1940's it expanded to small semi-permanent buildings. The first permanent building was constructed in 1960 and today is used as the administration Block. In 1971, the first Medical Doctor to the facility was appointed. The last group of the Ursuline Sisters left for the Netherlands in 1983, handing over the hospital to the Catholic Diocese of Kakamega.​

St. Mary’s Mission Hospital Mumias is a Faith Based Organization (FBO) managed by a Governing Board whose members  are appointed by the Diocesan Bishop.

The hospital has grown tremendously over the years to become a teaching and referral centre with a 255 bed capacity. Initially, the hospital trained its own Nurse Aids, a training program that transited into the establishment of the present School of Clinical medicine and Surgery.
