Bliss Health Care banking on continuous innovation as it marks 10 years

NAIROBI, Kenya, May 20- May 2021 marked an aluminum anniversary for Bliss Healthcare Limited as they celebrated 10 years of providing quality healthcare services through 82 clinics spread across 41 counties in the country – which makes Bliss Healthcare easily the largest clinic network in the country.

“In a year marked with an unprecedented global pandemic, we are proud to be one of the leading healthcare providers in the country,” said Vishal Sharma, Bliss Healthcare’s V.P. of Operations at their head office during the aluminum anniversary celebrations.

“What started out with just a handful of clinics ten years ago has grown to a network of over 80 plus Bliss centers, making it one of the largest, fastest and most affordable growing network of healthcare providers across the region.”

“After 10 years of hard work, commitment and determination, Bliss remains just as ambitious as when it began, having gained more experience, passion, sharpened its skills and collaborations and I couldn’t be prouder to be joining this team on its tenth anniversary, and the cusp of the 2020s decade.”

Bliss Healthcare has undertaken an ambitious range of innovative, structural actions and decisions that are transforming the clinic network to rise up to the challenges of business in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.

These include their Chronic Disease Management program currently serving over 20,000 patients, Telemedicine serving over 10,000 patients, the Company Scholarship Program and the Bliss at Home Program for patients.

Outgoing South African COO Dr. Selepe Percival had an older man’s wise words for the staff at Bliss HQ.

At a personal level, he urged everyone to ‘always be prepared to seize the opportunities that life gives you’ and said that from his medical viewpoint, a good memory is what most gives one upper-hand in life and follow-up.

“Whole grains, fish cooked in olive oil, followed by a fruit salad is the ideal meal for a human being,” he said.

Fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to lower levels of beta-amyloid proteins in the blood.

Dr. Selepe described Bliss Healthcare as a place where everyone’s contribution is highly valued across the board.

“If founders of companies are the architects, and we doctors are the engineers of such an organization, then it is important to remember, not just for Bliss Healthcare but every other business, that if not for the guy who mixes the cement, you will not have a house, or if you do, it will crack and collapse if he does a shoddy job …”

Caroline Machine, a manager with the Customer Experiential emphasized that celebrating the 10th anniversary is all about Bliss employees, customers, patients and partners who have made success possible.

Ms. Machine announced a series of both corporate and CSR events that Bliss Healthcare kicks off from the 24th of May as part of their aluminum anniversary machine.

“We’ll be donating various items to needy communities in the coming weeks, from foodstuff in bulk to sanitary masks and towels; distribution of gumboots to prisons and farmers; and our doctors and nurses giving health and career talks in various schools across the coming year, because Kenya needs more dedicated healthcare workers in the future as the current pandemic has highlighted, not just in our country, but right across the whole world.”
