The Medical Center

Dodoma Christian Medical Center (DCMC) was launched in 2003 with a focus on community health in rural villages. Today it is a thriving 50-bed medical center with nearly 120 employees. From safe childbirth and surgeries, to dental care and comprehensive family medicine, DCMC has become the facility of choice for reliable, high-quality healthcare throughout Central Tanzania.

Tanzania has made incredible strides in the last two decades toward improving healthcare in the country. Once ranked near the bottom of global statistics, Tanzania has dedicated attention and resources to improving quality of life — and it has had an impact!

While great strides have been made,

concerning health statistics still remain that DCMC is responding to.
