The Outspan Hospital started operations with the establishment of an Out Patient Department on August 7, 2001. A month later, the In Patient Department was opened with a capacity of 21 beds. Currently, the Out Patient Department has evolved into a one stop shop for all medical services expected of a national referral hospital. Despite the high cost of day to day operations and purchase and maintenance of modern medical equipment, The Outspan Hospital has retained very low rates in charges and fees. Some of the rates have never been reviewed since the facility opened its doors.
Some of these hospital charges and fees have remained constant in order for us to live by our vision of providing affordable but high quality health care. This has been achieved while we invested in sophisticated and expensive medical equipment. This is in keeping with the fast changing demands of our clients, modern technology and our status as a teaching hospital.
The Outspan prides of a Pharmacy stocked with the widest range of pharmaceuticals and non pharmaceuticals in the Mount Kenya region. A laboratory capable of undertaking highly complicated tests that can only be found available in top hospitals in Nairobi. The X ray Department is equipped with the latest Four dimensional Colour Doppler for quality ultrasonic imaging, a Mammogram Unit to enhance our capacity for breast imaging of various conditions and general survey or screening of Breast Cancer among other services. Four clinicians occupy the four consultation rooms. The Outpatient department also hosts the Dental Unit and a Maternal Child Health and Reproductive Health clinic. More than ten specialised clinics are held in a week.
