Nairobi — Aga Khan University Hospital has launched a new Peponi Specialty and Executive Clinic in Westlands in what, the management said, is part of its commitment to provide quality specialized care to its patients.

This becomes the 49th outpatient medical centre operated by the Hospital – with 4 in Uganda, one in Arusha, Tanzania and 44th in Kenya.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, Dr Shawn Bolouki, the Hospital Chief Executive Officer said that the clinic, located on 6 Peponi Road in Westlands, is run by a dedicated team of consultant doctors and specialist nurses across different specialties.

“Our aim with the Peponi Specialty and Executive Clinic is to increase access of our services to the people of this great city. This clinic shall provide a one-stop setting for our patients to receive care from consultants of different specialties including Surgery, Paediatrics, Cancer, Family Medicine, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Dental, Plastic Surgery, Haematology among others”, he said.

“The facility will double-up as a wellness centre where people will be able to do their annual medical checkups as well as pre-requisite medical examinations.”

Dr Bolouki further noted that despite the disruption of normal activities occasioned by COVID-19, healthcare needs have not changed and it was important for patients to continue their care, timely and safely.

“Do not wait for your situation to deteriorate especially for those suffering from chronic conditions. To ensure your continuity of care, we have put in place various safety measures to protect all people visiting the hospital as well as our staff,” he added
