Aga Khan Mombasa elevates care standards with upgrade

In an effort to enhance the provision of specialised healthcare services and grow its reach, the Aga Khan Hospital in Mombasa has undergone a significant renovation that will see it better serve an estimated 1.2 million patients.

This transformation has upgraded the facility from an 86-bed hospital to a 115-bed institution, poised to deliver improved, comprehensive, and integrated healthcare services to communities in Kenya’s Coast region.

Among the hospital’s new features are a dedicated Accidents and Emergency Unit, a spacious Intensive Care Unit, the region’s inaugural Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the private sector, and the first Sleep Lab employing state-of-the-art technology for diagnosing and treating sleep disorders.

Additionally, the hospital now offers specialized care in cardiology, oncology, neurology, psychiatry, and advanced surgical procedures.

This investment underscores Aga Khan Hospital’s commitment to upholding quality healthcare standards across its various locations in Kenya.

Princess Zahra Aga Khan, Chair of the Executive Committee of the Aga Khan Health Services, and Mr. Bertrand Willocquet, Country Director of Agence Française de Développement, visited the hospital to witness the completion of the renovation project.

Both expressed satisfaction with the improvements and enhanced capacity brought about by the upgrade. Established in 1944 as a 4-bed maternity home in the Ganjoni area of Mombasa, Aga Khan Hospital, Mombasa, has evolved into a vital healthcare center, serving over five counties in the Coastal region through purpose-built facilities and skilled medical personnel.

Out of the total expenditure, Kes1.2 billion ($8.54 million) was a loan from the Agence Française de Développement, with an additional funding of Kes523 million ($3.68 million) from the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN).

Aga Khan Health Services (AKHS), one of three agencies of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN), collaborates with Aga Khan Foundation and Aga Khan University to combat health challenges in low and middle-income countries.
