If you’re using the previous categorization, a level 5 hospital is a provincial hospital or just a secondary facility.
Level 5 health facilities provides a variety of medical services as well as training and internships for diverse groups of health workers. Aside from coordinating administration and providing health assistance to the sub-counties, they also perform specialized care duties.
Clinical services in Kenya are divided into six competence levels, ranging from level 1 to level 6, with Level 1 caring for the simplest patients and Level 6 caring for the most difficult. The majority of Level 5 hospitals serve as a point of referral for complicated conditions from Level 4 hospitals (District Hospitals).
