Our cancer care centre is fully equipped with the latest state of the art equipment for cancer diagnosis and treatment. Cancer is the 3rd leading cause of death in Kenya and second among non-communicable diseases accounting for 7% of the overall mortality rate.

KUTRRH comprehensive Cancer Care is one of the Hospital’s flagship projects aimed at filling the gaps of cancer care in the country in terms of early screening, diagnosis and treatment. For cancer diagnosis,
the Department uses MRI, CT Scan, Ultrasound, and Blood Tests.

The available treatment options are:

  • Surgery
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiotherapy.

Radiotherapy is key to cancer treatment, with over 60% of the cancer patients requiring it. To cater to this need, the
Department has a modern Linear Accelerator; an advanced machine for precision radiotherapy which includes 3D
radiation.

The Hospital is also in the process of constructing an Integrated Molecular Imaging Centre (IMIC) for comprehensive early diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

The Cancer Care Centre is run by experienced Oncologists, Medical Officers, Pharmacists, Oncology Nurses, Medical Physicists and Radiotherapy Technicians. This team of dedicated professionals is committed to ensuring all cancer
patients who walk through the Centre’s doors receive the highest quality care possible.

Currently, the Centre can provide radiotherapy treatment to 60 patients in a day, thus reducing the treatment waiting period. This has been possible only through proper planning and improved efficiency in capacity utilization.

Beyond having state-of-the-art equipment and staff, the Hospital is forging collaborations with local and international institutions. The goal is to carry out groundbreaking research and to offer innovative clinical
care that provides advanced treatment. Most importantly, care is patient-centred, where every patient is offered individualized attention.
