Reports have indicated that countries across the globe are working on ways to strengthen emergency medical response. It means that Nairobi West Hospital is headed in the right direction.
Dr Kanyi said, “This air ambulance can pick anyone from anywhere in the country and outside and right here at Nairobi West where we have a 45-bed ICU facility just two floors below the helipad where the patient will receive immediate attention.”
The hospital’s Helipad is located on the rooftop of the 7th floor in its main branch located in Nairobi West.
Dr Kanyi said, “Earlier plans were to fully stock the air clinic with oxygen to better handle patients who need to be on life support machine while being transported to the hospital.”
