Private Equity firm, Evercare, has taken over operations at the Nairobi Women’s Hospital, following the exit of its CEO.
The hospital’s CEO, Dr Felix Wanjala, stepped aside to pave way for the Kenya Medical Practitioners and Dentist Council to carry put inspections, amid claims that the hospital has been inflating patients’ bills.
Just last week, KRA suspended the hospital from its list of service providers, with a consortium of insurers including Jubilee, Britam, UAP, AAR, and CIC insurance suspending their credit services, citing cost inflation.
