The Nairobi Women’s Hospital, located in Hurlingham, Nairobi, was founded on March 5th, 2001 by Dr. Sam Thenya.
Its initial focus was to provide Obstetrics and Gynecology services, but it has grown to be a leading healthcare provider for all genders and ages.
The hospital is currently under the temporal leadership of an Operating Committee reporting to the Board following the resignation of Dr. Felix Wanjala as CEO in February 2020.
Some of the services provided in the hospital include Accident & Emergency, Pharmacy, Laboratory, Radiology & Imaging, and Inpatient services.
The hospital also runs various specialized clinics, such as Paediatric, Gynaecology, Dentist, Neurology, Oncology, Plastic Surgery, Dialysis, Dermatology, and Physiotherapy clinics.
Moreover, it currently has nine branches located in Hurlingham, Adams, Ongata-Rongai, Kitengela, Nakuru Hyrax, Nakuru CBD, Naivasha, Meru, and Mombasa.
The Nairobi Women’s Hospital also runs a non-profit charitable trust called the Gender Violence Recovery Center (GVRC) that provides free medical treatment and psychological support to survivors of gender-based violence.
It also established a medical training college named The Nairobi Women’s Hospital-College in June 2008. The college has since graduated over 300 health workers skilled in various specialties.
