The National Bank of Kenya and Kenyatta National Hospital today unveiled a makeover of the hospital’s state-of-the-art kitchen. The Ksh25 million kitchen renovation marks the completion of phase one of a three-part project aimed at giving the referral hospital a facelift.
This is the first renovation of the kitchen since the hospital opened in 1901 and will improve the quality of meals prepared there for over 2,000 patients daily.
Ag. CEO Kenyatta National Hospital, Dr. Evanson Kamuri, said catering services are vital in supporting patient management.
“Well cooked nutritious food increases the response of a patient to the medical treatment offered by our specialists,” said Dr Kamuri. “We have no doubt that our patients will appreciate the improvement in our catering services as a result of this gracious project.”
“The partnership with KNH commenced in 2003 and has since grown into a very successful relationship between,” said National Bank of Kenya Managing Director and CEO Wilfred Musau.
“We have been able to deploy technology-powered payments processing solutions to KNH to enable them to process their supplier payments, salary payments, patient refunds and statutory payments from the comfort of their offices reducing manual work.”
The National Bank of Kenya has a strategic branch within the hospital to ensure maximum support for the institution to meet its obligations efficiently. This relationship shows the importance of engaging in strategic partnerships by bringing together the national governments, civil society, the private sector, and other actors to support and achieve the ambitious targets of the government’s big 4 agenda.
