Peponi Specialty and Executive Clinic in Westlands as part of its commitments
to provide quality specialized care to its patients. This becomes the 49th
outpatient medical centre operated by the Hospital - with 4 in Uganda, one in
Arusha, Tanzania and 44 in Kenya.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Speaking at the launch ceremony, Dr Shawn Bolouki, the
Hospital Chief Executive Officer said that the clinic, located on 6 Peponi Road
in Westlands, is run by a dedicated team of consultant doctors and specialist
nurses across different specialties.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">“Our aim with the Peponi Specialty and Executive Clinic, is
to increase access of our services to the people of this great city. This
clinic shall provide a one stop setting for our patients to receive care from
consultants of different specialties including Surgery, Paediatrics, Cancer,
Family Medicine, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Dental, Plastic Surgery,
Haematology among others”, he Said.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">“The facility will double-up as a wellness centre where
people will be able to do their annual medical checkups as well as
pre-requisite medical examinations.”</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Dr Bolouki further noted that despite the disruption of
normal activities occasioned by COVID-19, healthcare needs have not changed and
it was important for patients to continue their care, timely and safely.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">“Do not wait for your situation to deteriorate especially
for those suffering from chronic conditions. To ensure your continuity of care,
we have put in place various safety measures to protect all people visiting the
hospital as well as our staff.” He added .</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">Hon. Justin Muturi, Speaker of the National Assembly and
Chief Guest at the launch ceremony lauded the Hospital for remaining a leader
in the provision of healthcare in the region.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">“I am happy to note that this Peponi Executive and Specialty
Clinic will be run by Consultants from different specialties. This is a great
step towards ensuring that patients access the best care they need,” he said.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">“Of particular interest to me is the fact that this clinic
will have a wellness centre. This fits in well with preventive care. I urge my
colleagues in Parliament and fellow Kenyans to make use of the wellness centre
thorough regular health screening to know the status of their health especially
this time when non-communicable diseases are ravaging lives.” </span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The Speaker also praised the hospital for being a pioneer in
the health sector as seen in the acquisition of the region’s first PET CT scan
for the management of cancer, heart disease and neurological disorders.
Recently, the hospital started conducting Prostrate PET CT Scan, making Kenya,
the second country in sub-Saharan Africa, after South Africa to conduct this
test.</span></p><p><span style="font-family: helvetica;">The new Peponi Executive and Specialty Clinic also has a
well-stocked pharmacy and onsite laboratory for routine and specialized tests.
