HIGH DEPENDENCY & CRITICAL CARE UNITS
CRITICAL CARE UNIT (CCU)
The ultra-modern CCU has been designed in line with the JCI standards. It has been fitted with smart glass, rendering curtains obsolete and making it infection control compliant. The rooms are also fitted with hermetic doors which are internationally accepted in health care institutions as they are antimicrobial and scratch proof.
The Critical Care Unit has a total capacity of 16 rooms; 3 of which are negative pressure isolation rooms and 2 are anterooms.
The Critical Care Unit is managed by 10 doctors and 54 registered nurses, 37 of whom are trained critical care nurses.
All the nurses and doctors receive regular ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) training and are equipped with the most up-to-date evidence-based practice in accordance with American Resuscitation Protocols.
2:00pm – 4:00pm: One visitor per patient
*Children under 12 years are not allowed in the wards
High Dependency Unit
The High Dependency Unit serves to offer patients a place to transition from the Critical Care Unit while still needing close monitoring. Similarly, patients who do not require admission to CCU but are too sick to be in the wards are admitted in the unit. It comprises of five ward beds and two isolation rooms.
Neonatal Intensive Care (Nicu)
Due to the increased number of births resulting from improved technology, the number of premature neonates in the hospital has increased, necessitating the establishment of an ultra-modern Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), which is in the new Maternity Ward.

COVID-19 Isolation ICU
The UN-TNH Treatment Facility had been created in response to the UN Secretary-General’s desire to have a dedicated global medevac solution for the UN that is also capable of supporting Kenyans in need of complicated COVID-19 management.
Unlike many other facilities built as part of humanitarian response efforts by the UN, this facility is designed to remain active and serve Kenya and the region beyond the COVID-19 pandemic and for many years to come.
The specialized 135-bed medical facility comes with 18 Intensive Care Unit and 45 High Dependency Unit beds that can be converted to Intensive Card beds as the need arises. The facility has bolstered the capacity of Kenya’s national healthcare system, supporting local COVID-19 patients alongside UN staff and the diplomatic community.
The facility also provides for dialysis and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). The ECMO equipment, imported by the UN, is the first of its kind in East and Central Africa.
