A government-run hospital, it provides care for the poor. Most specialties are catered for (including cardiothoracic surgery). It has a CT scanner (although this does not always work) and the renal unit is the biggest in East and Central Africa, and outside South Africa is the only one in a public hospital. Many of the departments are the only ones in the public sector in either Kenya or in Central/East Africa, for example the neurosurgery unit, which is the only one in the country. In 2002, the hospital colaborated with Guy’s Hospital to fund a ‘Free Open Heart Surgery Week’, aimed at those under 15 years old.
