India hospitals launch referral centre in Nairobi to provide information, consultation to 3,000 patients
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.
