Kenyatta National Hospital has unveiled its plans to construct a Sh15 billion seven-floor private hospital in a bid to solicit funds to fund its services in the parent institution.

The hospital (KNH) said the 300-bed facility will stand on 3.6 Hectares parcel of land, and be developed under a design, construct, equip, finance, operate and maintain model within the next five years.

“Kenyatta National Hospital Board (KNHB) now wishes to have developed a separate private hospital (the Project) under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement that will serve fee-paying private patients, hence providing a source of additional funding to support the main public hospital,” says the published request for qualification (RFQ) notice.

The level six facility whose construction starts in 2020 is set to offer premium services and will be a standalone facility, complete with 500 parking slots for vehicles.
