Mombasa, Kenya, 18 February 2024 -Completed renovation of the Aga Khan Hospital, Mombasa marks a milestone in its ongoing commitment to provide quality health care to a population of nearly 1.2 million people. The refurbishment has transformed the 86-bed facility into a state-of-the-art 115-bed secondary hospital, offering comprehensive, integrated health services to the communities it serves.

The renovation project represents a total investment of $12.2 million, with significant support from the French Development Agency (Agence Française de Développement - AFD).

Princess Zahra Aga Khan, Chair of the Executive Committee of the Aga Khan Health Services (AKHS), and Mr Bertrand Willocquet, Country Director of AFD, visited the hospital today and expressed their satisfaction with the renovation and the enhanced capacity it has brought about.

Aga Khan Hospital, Mombasa, with its outreach centres, stands as the premier healthcare service provider in the coastal region, consistently expanding its reach and diversifying services to meet the evolving needs of the community. Since the inauguration of a 4-bed maternity home in the Ganjoni area of Mombasa in 1944, the integrated health network has grown into a central hub serving over five counties in the region through purpose-built facilities and highly skilled doctors and nurses committed to delivering quality care.

The hospital has been awarded the prestigious SafeCare Level 5 certification, an international benchmark for safe and quality patient care. It is the first AKHS hospital in Kenya to achieve such accreditation, with eight of its outreach health centres also attaining the highest level of SafeCare certification - Level 5.

The newly renovated Aga Khan Hospital, Mombasa is poised to provide enhanced healthcare services to the people of the coastal region and Kenya at large. The facility now features a dedicated Accidents and Emergency Unit, a larger Intensive Care Unit, the region's first private-sector Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the inaugural Sleep Lab utilising cutting-edge technology for diagnosing and treating sleep disorders. Holding Level 5 certification from SafeCare Health Standards, the hospital is well-equipped to offer specialised care in cardiology, oncology, neurology, psychiatry, advanced surgeries, and more.
