The late president Daniel Arap Moi’s family is seeking to build a multi-billion private hospital. The hospital, whose total estimated cost will be Sh. 35 billion, will be built through the Kabarak University which is owned by the family.
The Moi family hospital will be based in Nakuru. It will have 500 beds and will be built on a 100-acre piece of land in Kabarak.
“The estimated project cost is Sh. 35,049,177,543.95. The development is along Nakuru Ravine road. The land is privately owned by Kabarak University Trust. The development is to be built on a 100-acre land,” regulatory filings show.
The filings were made to the National Environmental Management Authority (Nema). They show that the hospital will offer premium services and also host a top cancer treatment centre. It will also host a research and training centre for health professionals in the East Africa region.
The hospital will be completed within three years. It will be referred to as the Kabarak University Teaching, Research and Referral Mission Hospital (KUTRRMH).
“The proposed development will be located on LR. no block 10/1920 opposite Kabarak University gate 20km from Nakuru town,” the filings show.
The mega project will be constructed by Canadian firm Minaean SP Construction Corp which made the expression of interest for the project in 2021.
“Kabarak University Teaching, Research and Referral Mission Hospital (KUTRRMH) will be a 500-bed teaching speciality hospital which consists of a main hospital equipped with Cancer and Research centres, with its medical campus adjacent to the thriving Kabarak University campus in Nakuru County,” said Minaean SP Construction Corp in its regulatory filings.
“The value of the EPC contract is estimated to be approximately $257 million (Sh. 28.1 billion). A Strategic Partnership Agreement is anticipated to be negotiated and signed between the two organizations for in-depth involvement in the full execution of the project with other contracts to follow.”
