Kabarak to open Kenya’s fifth teaching and research hospital

Kenya’s Kabarak University has broken ground for its US$450 million teaching, research and referral hospital, the country’s fifth and probably the most expensive.

The university expects the facility to be operational in three years’ time. It will consist of a 500-bed “multidisciplinary tertiary” hospital and 250-bed teaching hospital within the private university’s extensive land in Nakuru county in the Rift Valley region.

The university, owned by Kenya’s ex-president Daniel Arap Moi and family,  plans to draw on the US Green Building Council’s LEED certification model to develop and operate the facility, with US engineering firm General Electric Healthcare as its technology partner.
