Kenyan parents living along Thika road can enjoy the convenience of having a pediatric hospital near their residence thanks to Getrude’s hospital which has opened a new branch at Thika Road Mall.
“We wanted to bring our services closer to our clients,” said Risper Oliech,the marketing executive at the hospital. “Our clients who live in this area are usually forced to commute all the way to Muthaiga in order to access our services but now with this new branch, they will not have to commute far or not even commute at all.”
On why they chose Thika road mall as they location to open their new branch Risper said; “we wanted to meet our clients halfway, we chose a location that we thought will be convenient for them.”
The pediatric hospital will offer the same care and services as they do in their other branches which include; accident and emergency, pediatric outpatient, specialist pediatric clinics, well baby clinic, pharmacy, laboratory, international travel vaccination, dental: all ages and nutritionist clinic.
“For services such as dental care, we will have specialists come in once a week at first but as we grow in the area, we will have them on location.”
The hospital is located on the 2nd floor next to Barclays Bank and Cooperative Bank. It operates from 8am to 8p on Monday to Saturday and from 8am to 6pm on Sundays. “Those are the working hours but we do not stop working until we are done with the last patient.”
