A group of stakeholders from the various sectors of the health industry in Kenya came together and decided that it was high time deserving health facilities, practitioners and students get recognition for their contribution towards making Kenya a better country in terms of health care service provision.
After several months of brainstorming and planning, the idea of having the inaugural Quality Healthcare Kenyan Awards was born. The awards were divided into two broad categories; the people’s choice awards and the general awards. For the people’s choice awards, the public nominated their preferred hospitals of choice and the ones with the highest votes were shortlisted as finalists. Tenwek Hospital managed to be shortlisted as a contender for the faith based facility of choice and the race was against Kijabe Hospital and AIC Cure.
We also successfully submitted an entry for the Tenwek Hospital Eye and Dental Centre for consideration to win the Innovation Project of the Year Award for the period between 2016 and 2018. In the end, Tenwek Hospital emerged victorious! We won the faith based facility of choice award and we were 2nd runners up for the Innovation Project of the Year Award.
We thank all those who believed in Tenwek Hospital and in our vision of providing quality and compassionate care to our patients. We acknowledge that we still have a long way to go, but we wish to reassure our commitment towards provision of quality yet affordable services to those we serve.
Asanteni sana for choosing Tenwek Hospital and for believing in us!
