An In­dian hospi­tal chain has launched its first in­ter­na­tional re­fer­ral cen­tre in Nairobi to act as a one-stop shop on their ser­vices and treat­ments.

Based in Up­per Hill, the cen­tre will en­able pa­tients in­quire about ser­vices of­fered by hos­pi­tals run by med­i­cal firm Max Health­care.

It will also func­tion as a fol­low-up cen­tre for pa­tients in East Africa, as­sist­ing them with supplementary con­sul­ta­tion with doc­tors in India.

“East Africa is of sig­nif­i­cant im­por­tance to us, as we cater to al­most 3,000 pa­tients per year from the re­gion. The launch of the cen­tre is a pa­tient-centric step to de­liver bet­ter health­care out­comes in the re­gion,” Max CEO Ra­jit Me­hta said at the launch in Nairobi last week.

They would also build links with local health­care service providers to sup­port them in build­ing ca­pac­ity and in­fra­struc­ture.

Me­hta said the cen­tre would also de­liver doc­tor and staff train­ing pro­grammes, and con­duct con­sul­ta­tions and sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dures in local hos­pi­tals.
