Is Kenyatta University Referral Hospital operating below its capacity?

Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral, and Research Hospital is a modern health facility with a state of the art equipment. It was build at a cost of Sh.8 billion.

It has a bed capacity of 650 beds, including 28 ICU beds. It sits on a 100-acre piece of land. It is located on the northern bypass, a few kilometers from Kahawa West.

The hospital is struggling with the hiring of top managers. Its current head Wekesa Masasabi will proceed for his terminal leave in May. Massive jobs have been advertised in the process, but the facility is still highly understaffed.

It picked on a low note, but it will be just a few months before they experience overcrowding like the case in other referral hospitals.

It is a fully-fledged hospital with Medi-Care, Oncology/Cancer Unit, Renal Services, Trauma, and Orthopedics. They also have a funeral home.

The hospital started operations in 2019 after years of inactivity as a result of ownership wrangles between Kenyatta University and the Ministry of Health. It was then resolved that the Ministry of Health would run the facility following a directive from the president.
KUTRRH is a referral hospital and does not accept walk-in patients.

It will help to decongest Kenyatta National Hospital, Kiambu Level V, and Gatundu Hospitals.
