The 24-hour Accident and Emergency (A&E) Centre
Conveniently located at the main entrance of the Hospital. The Accident and Emergency Center is manned by a specialist in emergency medicine and works in conjunction with the cardiac catheterization Lab in management of heart attacks. The Centre is compliant to international standards of emergency, trauma, life support and this has shaped the Hospital’s speedy response to incidents, accidents and disasters.
Critical care is provided in the Critical Care Unit (CCU) and the High Dependency Unit (HDU) as a continuum of the emergency care.
The staff members of the A&E recognize the need to treat patients with utmost respect and professionalism. They go out of their way to ensure that patients are attended to in a timely and effective way before discharge or transfer to inpatient wards.
The A&E partners with several consultants in management of patients as the need may arise. In addition, there is collaboration with other medical centres from East and Central Africa who choose to refer their patients to the Nairobi Hospital for further specialized management.
The Centre has increased its capacity over the years and is now able to serve about 350 patients per day. The medical staff is made up of 25 doctors and 44 nurses. Moreover, there is a fully fledged Pediatric Department that attends to an average of 70 patients per day.
