In August 2016 The Nairobi Hospital launched an extensive expansion plan which will expand the capacity of the hospital to make quality healthcare more accessible in the region. The hospital has deservedly earned recognition throughout East Africa and beyond as an advanced diagnostic, treatment and referral centre. In 2016 hospital professionals saw almost 185,000 patients and performed almost 10,000 operations.
Mr. Gordon Odundo, CEO of The Nairobi Hospital said, “The Nairobi Hospital is looking forward to working with Vitro on this project which will offer tremendous value to our clinicians and enhance the quality of care to our patients. The hospital prides itself as being the leading healthcare facility in the region and this initiative will bear great testimony to our ability to be innovative in all matters that ensure the highest standards are met.”
Commenting on the contract Declan Daly, CEO Vitro Software, said, “We see our contract with the highly respected Nairobi Hospital as our first step in the vast continent of Africa. We plan on significant growth over the next couple of years. With The Nairobi Hospital contract and a local Kenyan partner, Savannah Informatics, a Kenyan based health informatics firm, we are well placed to grow, not just in Kenya, but to other sub-Saharan countries. I want to pay particular tribute to Enterprise Ireland for their focus in helping Irish companies develop export markets which was significant in leading directly to this opportunity.”
Opened in 1954, The Nairobi Hospital has excelled in medical expertise and services provision and has deservedly earned recognition throughout East Africa and beyond as an advanced diagnostic, treatment and referral centre. Expansive investment in latest technology and medical equipment has allowed the hospital to establish leadership in medical procedures both in Kenya and beyond. The leadership of The Nairobi Hospital has a vision of service excellence. This is evidenced in the ambitious expansion plans and the commitment to process improvement and best practice protocols. The investment in IT systems, including the Vitro implementation plan, illustrates the commitment to improving patient care, allowing care givers to provide better and safer patient outcomes for all who attend the hospital.
Minister Simon Coveney TD said, “This announcement exemplifies the significant opportunities that exist for Irish and Kenyan organisations to benefit from new trade relations. I am pleased to witness the signing of the contract between Vitro Software and The Nairobi Hospital, Vitro Software’s first contract win on the African continent. I wish Vitro Software continued success in the future and I hope that this is just a first step in their expansion into increasingly dynamic African markets.”
