The Nairobi West hospital and Heart Evaluation Centre Machakos have organized a free health camp in Machakos County on Saturday 29th October 2022.

The Nairobi West Hospital has been a reputable private healthcare service provider in Nairobi for over 35 years, offering accessible and affordable patient-centered healthcare with excellence in quality and service.

The facility has various departments from bone marrow transplants, urology, oncology, dental, dermatology, radiology, and ENT to cardiology among many others.

The Open-day forum themed “Free Heart Clinic ”, will be open to the public and held at M.H.E.C off Konza Wote Road, Muthini Estate. The medical camp will provide cardiologist reviews, free blood pressure checks, free blood sugar checks, free medication, and an 80 percent discount on ECG, Echocardiograms, and Carotid Doppler services.

Chief Medical Director at the Nairobi West Hospital, Prof. Andrew Gachii, in a statement said that the initiative is aimed at benefiting members of the society who are suffering from various heart ailments.

He added that Nairobi West Hospital continues to endeavor in providing the best quality cardiac care through such open days aimed at educating the public on best cardiovascular health practices to minimize the mortality rate caused by heart disease, which many times go unnoticed until it is too late.

The hospital offers world class patient focused medical treatment and accords the highest standards of care.

Just under two weeks ago, they unveiled the first-ever Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in Kenya, further increasing their capacity to treat even complex diseases all under one roof, and more importantly eliminating the need to travel abroad for such treatment. In addition to this, the hospital also houses a Helipad to accommodate air rescue services from all parts of the country in an effort to bolster emergency response services.

Heart Evaluation Centre, Machakos in a statement said, “the exercise is seeking to create awareness on affordable medical services in the country,” and hailed The Nairobi West Hospital’s management for their consistent innovation in the medical field and offering world class services.

“Quality healthcare is a necessity to all human beings and most people are unable to access it in Kenya. For this reason, we found it best to hold this medical camp herein as a way to bring services closer to the people,” they further added.

Dr. Ephantus Maree from the Ministry of Health recently pointed out that cardiovascular diseases are the second leading cause of mortality in Kenya after communicable ailments, adding that the Ministry is prioritizing heart health to save more lives.

“These are diseases of great economic importance and we need to invest as a country and put a lot of effort to ensure that we address cardiovascular diseases. It is estimated that by 2030, the economic burden caused by cardiovascular diseases in this country will be 3 trillion Kenyan Shillings,” Dr. Maree said.
