We had the privilege of hosting His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta, CGH, President of the Republic of Kenya, who officiated the Dedan Kimathi University Comprehensive Cancer Management Centre's groundbreaking ceremony.
The establishment of the Dedan Kimathi University Comprehensive Cancer Management Centre is in line with the Kenya Vision 2030, which aims at providing high-quality and affordable health care to improve the quality of life for Kenyans. It is also in line with the Big 4 Agenda that aims to achieve Universal Health Care.
The Cancer Management Centre will become a national and regional centre of excellence in cancer research and management. It will be a 150 inpatient and ten intensive care bed capacity Hospital and is envisaged to serve patients drawn from Nyeri, Laikipia, Samburu, Isiolo, Kirinyaga, Murang'a, Meru, Tharaka-Nthi, Embu and Nyandarua regions. Its design, which emphasizes the full range of healthcare from scanning, diagnosis, treatment, and palliative care, aims to fill the gaps in cancer care in the region in terms of early diagnosis and treatment.
