KENYA – The President of Kenya, His excellency William Ruto, is set to officially open the AAR Hospital on Wednesday 15th February 2023 from 10 am.
The facility is part of the larger AAR Network which provides quality service to the population of Kenya & Uganda.
The Hospital, located in along Kiambu road in Kenya’s Kiambu county, delivers an unparalleled patient experience through a customer-centred approach that leverages innovation and an engaged workforce.
It is a Level 5 state-of-the-art facility that began operations in 2021. It offers a range of healthcare services including emergency & urgent care services, renal unit & dialysis services, obstetrics & gynaecology services, critical care services, medical & surgical services, specialized clinics, and paediatric services.
Other services provided include well-baby and travel vaccine services, theatre services, executive check-up clinics, diagnostics and imaging services, and pharmacy Services.
It has a capacity of 140 beds, 4 operating theatres, a 12-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU), a 9 bed High Dependency Unit (HDU) and a modern Neonatal ICU. The renal unit has 11 beds with the capacity to dialyse 40 patients a day.
One of the unique features of the institution is that the outpatient services are delivered through independent emergency care facility and the outpatient facility.
This separation of the outpatient services implies the ambulatory care will continue without interruption from incoming emergencies as happens in other institutions.
The establishment of the facility was through funding from International Finance Corporation (IFC), International Fund for Health in Africa (IFHA- Netherlands), Swedfund, FinnFund, Investeringsfonden for udviklingslande (IFU-Denmark) and Promotion et de Participation pour la Coopération Economique (PROPARCO-France).
The investment is managed through Hospital Holdings Investment (HHI), a company duly registered in Kenya.
