Equity Bank network of franchised medical centres Equity Afia has today opened two more branches bringing the total centres to 35.
The two, Equity Afia Matuu and Equity Afia Kisii medical centres are expected to enable atleast 1.3 million Kenyans to enjoy access to quality and affordable healthcare services.
Located in Matuu at Al Plaza along KC Road and in Kisii at Ouru Complex along the Kisii- Kisumu Highway, the two medical centres enter the respective markets to complement medical services offered by other private healthcare service providers, mission facilities and government healthcare centres.
With the opening of the two new medical centres, Equity Afia now has a presence in 13 counties across the country including Muranga, Nairobi, Kajiado, Kiambu, Mombasa, Meru, Kakamega, Nakuru, Nyeri, Kisumu and Trans Nzoia.
“It is our vision that all Equity Afia medical centres including the Kisii and Matuu clinics will act as first response emergency centres for many, wellness centres for those seeking a healthy lifestyle but most of all, as primary medical centres for all Kenyans offering quality and affordable medical services,” said Equity Group Foundation Executive Director Reuben Mbindu.
Established by alumni of the Equity Leaders Program (ELP), the Equity Afia medical centres operate under the Hub and Spoke business model thus ensuring that all clients visiting medical centres under the Equity Afia network enjoy increased efficiency and enhanced quality of care.
Commenting on the opening of the two centres, Equity Afia Kisii Medical Officer-In-Charge, Dr. Magare Magare said, “As Equity Afia, we are happy that we now have presence in Kisii and Matuu and that residents of the two areas will enjoy affordable services.
