Statement from The Nairobi Women’s Hospital

Nairobi Women’s Hospital Nairobi, 10th February 2020: Following a meeting of its Board, the Nairobi Women’s Hospital confirms that Dr. Felix Wanjala has agreed to step aside while both an internal review and an independent inspection by the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Council are carried out. In the interim, the leadership of Nairobi Women’s Hospital will be undertaken by an Operating Committee reporting to the Board. This committee is comprised of three Evercare representatives. It is a priority to allow the review process to take place in the best possible conditions, in order to ensure clarity on the allegations that have been made. The Nairobi Women’s Hospital and the management team are committed to cooperating fully and in the most open manner. We expect this process will be concluded shortly, and we will update all stakeholders in due course. The Board and the management team of the Nairobi Women’s Hospital would like to thank Dr. Felix Wanjala for his continuous commitment and dedication to his role, the clinical staff and the entire organisation over the last six years.

Greed comes before a fall. Wa kubali their golden goose is gone.

RIP

Now some people are going to be rendered jobless in the name of greed

\this thing is going to consume them for a very long time. Trust, once lost, is very hard to redeem.

Kazi Safi sana

I hope they go under. Ubaya yetu hatuskii

Every private hospital does what NWH was doing. It’s just that they got caught. Many times you do not see it happening because it happens on a upper management level and is discretely passed down to staff. The staff have no clue what’s going on. But it happens all the time. It’s the norm. If you show up with an Insurance card, any hospital will recommend an extra test. Doctor will recommend a “ follow up” visit. Ahh hold the patient for an extra day for observation. …, etc.
NWH is going nowhere. A little coffee to Insurance executives and the hosi will be back in business. It is otherwise a decent hospital.

U think insurance executives who look for little excuses to avoid settling claims so that the company profits will go up will simply agree to what’s been happening over a cup of coffee???

Yaani they actually caved into this nonsense? Anyone who uses insurance knows that they weren’t lying.

Coffee in the satirical sense. But remember insurance companies do not care about their client, who is the insured. All they want is the monthly premium and pay as little as possible in claims.

I get you
But NWH kujitoa hapo itakuwa ngumu

I remember in 2017 AKI held a meeting with various stakeholders in the health sector ( or is it health INDUSTRY)that is hospitals,ministry of finance,health,and KMA

Insurance companies had complained about high fees charged by doctors and hospital

That’s why the government did come up with regulations that put a ceiling on how much doctors can charge as consultation fee

Insurance companies will gladly avoid this hospital Ndio iwe funzo kwa wengine
