Equity Afia adds two more clinics to its network

Equity Afia has added two more clinics, which are the sixth and seventh to its network. The two new clinics are in Ruiru and Nyeri towns.

Equity Afia is implementing a sustainable, integrated health model under a franchise network that oversees a group of clinical entrepreneurs providing standardised, quality healthcare throughout the country.

Speaking during the launch ceremony in Ruiru, the Chief Guest, Equity Bank Kenya Chairman Prof. Isaac Macharia said all the Equity Afia facilities are NHIF (National Hospital Insurance Fund) accredited, facilitating further access to quality medical services by majority of Kenyans. “The clinics will not only provide curative care, but they will be heavily involved in preventative healthcare,” he added.

Equity Group Foundation Executive Director, Mr. Reuben Mbindu said the health facilities are focused on the well-being of communities. “Our aim is to extend affordable medical services to all, without people having to dig deeper into their pockets,” said Mr. Mbindu.

So far, Equity Afia has operational clinics in Ongata Rongai, Thika, Buruburu, Kayole and Kawangware . The clinics offer comprehensive outpatient care for the whole family. Services include consultation by the doctors, a wide range of outpatient procedures, modern laboratories and well-stocked in-house pharmacies.

Further, they have in-house specialists such as paediatricians, gynaecologists, obstetricians, ENT services, physicians, nutritionists, physiotherapists, antenatal and well-baby clinics.

Equity Afia was established by Equity Group Foundation and franchise holders can get support services from Equity Bank like financing. It is also providing a platform for alumni of the Equity Leaders Program who are qualified health professionals to join the franchise and use their health expertise to transform lives and livelihoods of Kenyans through offering affordable, quality and accessible healthcare.
