New hospital seeks medical tourists


Kabarak University has partnered with international organisations to build a teaching hospital with 500 beds in Nakuru, Kenya.

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.

GE Healthcare will assist the university with infrastructure development, technology transfer, education and capacity building.

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