Highly-qualified doctors and medical officers are in-charge of running the out-patient clinics. These clinics cater to both routine and emergency cases. A major advantage at Diani Beach Hospital is the distinct lack of prolonged waiting times before one gets medical attention due to the newly computerized hospital information system. Should you wish to have an appointment with a particular doctor please get in touch with the hospital receptionist.
Outpatient fees have to be settled at the front office. Upon settling your bill you will be given a detailed receipt which you can use to claim back from your respective insurance companies.
The hospital can pick-up a patient and drop them off to the respective hotels or cottages at no extra cost. Arrangements for this can be made with the hospital receptionist through the hotel or cottage reception.
