The Kabarak University Teaching Research and Referral Mission Hospital is expected to open in 2020.It will offer services in cardiology and cardiothoracic surgery, cancer treatment, women and child healthcare, stem cell and regenerative medicine, neurology and minimally invasive surgery.

The hospital hopes to promote medical tourism to Kenya, but more importantly to reduce outbound medical tourism.
