The firm has been expanding its presence in the Kenyan market by opening Out- patient centres in major towns in the country.

NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 18 – AAR Healthcare is set to open a 100-bed capacity hospital in Nairobi this year as it seeks to strengthen its presence in the Kenyan Market.

AAR Group Chairman Frank Njenga says this is part of the Sh10 billion expansion plans in the country and the region.

“Discussions are at an advanced stage to see us open a hospital in Nairobi, we are looking for location and will fund the expansion through savings as well as borrowing from our partners, “he said.

The firm has been expanding its presence in the Kenyan market by opening Out- patient centres in major towns in the country.

In addition, the firm which launched its 14th Out-patient centre in Thika town on Friday has set eyes on Ruaka, Ngong, Kitengela and Nyali in 2015.

The firm so far has about 36 health centres in the region and about 14 in Kenya with plans to enter Kigali in 2015.

The firm has presence in Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.

“We are on a strategic growth path to expand our presence in the Kenyan market and the region as a whole and make our services available we believe there is a huge market in the country as the middle class is growing rapidly,” Njenga said.

In 2012 the firm launched a fully-fledged insurance company operating as AAR Insurance Kenya Limited that looks to drive the market penetration of insurance into untapped markets around the country.
