Kenya’s dream to attain Universal Health Coverage and turn the country into a medical tourism hub has received a shot in the arm.
This is after AAR Hospital unveiled Cutting-edge technology in an effort to cut down on Kenyans who travel out of the country to get medical attention.
The equipment is aimed to significantly enhance patient care, diagnostic accuracy, and treatment outcomes while at the same time providing the best possible medical evaluations for patients.
The equipment include cutting-edge anaesthesia machines, Laparoscopic Tower and Endoscopic Tower and blood and cell technologies for precise and prompt treatment of sickle cell disease and other ailments.
Laparoscopy can be used to help diagnose a wide range of conditions that develop inside the abdomen or pelvis.

According to AAR Hospital CEO Aysha Edwards, by integrating advanced machinery into their healthcare system, the hospital aims at empowering their healthcare professionals to identify potential health issues early.
This, she said, will in turn enable proactive measures and preventive care strategies to be implemented hence lead to improved patient well-being and long-term health.
