The burden of Cancer is rising globally, In Kenya for example, Cancer is the 3rd leading cause of death after infectious and cardiovascular diseases.

According statistics of the  National Cancer Institute of Kenya(NCI), Breast, cervix uteri, oesophagus, prostate and colorectum are the leading types of new cancer cases in both males and females across all ages, with oesophageal cancer being the leading cause of cancer deaths, followed by cervical cancer and then breast cancer.

In this regard, STMH-K strategically thought of a comprehensive oncology unit  for treatment, diagnosis and prevention of cancer. Some of the services offered in the unit include:

  • Cancer testing and screening
  • Chemotherapy
  • Nutrition and Counselling
  • Physiotherapy and rehabilitation
  • Palliative care

We have partnered with visiting Oncologists, who run the Outpatient Oncology Clinic every Tuesday and does the ward rounds in the unit. To ease the financial burden of treatment, we have partnered with Medical Insurance companies and  we are also NHIF acredited thus the Chemotherapy sessions are fully paid by NHIF which is the primary insurance.

Apart from the State-of Art-Euipment,the unit also has motivated and qualified professionals who work round the clock to give the patients quality services and aid in their recovery process. In all this we are driven  by the spirit of Love and Service hence our motto, “To Love and To Serve”.
