About Us

Kenyan lives matter

At Katani Hospital our number one goal is to “Cancel Appointments with Death, Dying, Disability and Illness and Restore You to Wellness and Life.”

Katani Hospital is a multi-specialty hospital founded by Modesta Vesonder, CEO and Terrance L. Baker, MD, MS; Sollay Kenyan Foundation, and friends and family. This institution aims to provide the highest standards of medical care to all patients regardless of financial resources.

Katani Hospital has a capacity of 144 beds with two operation theaters and a staff with experienced, well-trained physicians and nurses. We are partnering with local and regional hospitals; community physicians; community nurses; and nurse mid-wives to provide a network of clinics throughout the Nairobi community as well as remote areas of Kenya. We believe that this network of hospitals, clinics, physicians, nurses, practitioners, nurse mid-wives and local area medicine men will ensure that all patients in our immediate community as well as the Kenyan community in general will have medical services available that are often readily needed in order to save a patients life and to prevent unnecessary disability.

Since we opened in October 2018, dedicated by Prime Minister Raila Amollo Odinga, we have continued to grow with a substantial increase in our medical services.
