Our Story

A reputation of providing unrivaled access to world-class specialised health care

Upper Hill Medical Centre (UHMC) first opened its doors back in 2001, as a specialist medical centre committed to the ambitious vision: To provide all medical specialities under one roof.

Today, UHMC has built an outstanding reputation as Eastern Africa’s largest specialist medical centre, with over 40 clinics and 50+ renowned medical specialists, leading in the treatment of common and complex conditions across a broad range of specialities.

UHMC’s multidisciplinary, one-stop approach and its ultra-modern facilities (conveniently located in Nairobi at the junction of Argwings Kodhek and Ralph Bunche Roads, about 100 meters from The Nairobi Hospital) have greatly improved access to specialised health care. This has seen UHMC become the preferred medical service provider of choice, with over 2,000 patients visit each day.

A world class specialised health care destination in Kenya

Serving local and international clients

All too often, we hear of Kenyans proceeding overseas for medical treatment. This has created a misconception that specialised health care is unavailable in Kenya or is far too expensive compared to other countries. UHMC is keen on changing this narrative, one satisfied client at a time.

Cost-effective Care

Firstly, overseas treatment involves additional expenses, such as visas, air tickets and accommodation in addition to costs that are incidental to overseas travel for both the patient and accompanying relatives.

When tallied side-by-side, the overall costs can escalate to an amount exceeding the cost of similar treatment from right here at home. UHMC continues to strive to make cost-effective specialised health care options a reality to those in Kenya and the region.

World-Class Expertise

Secondly, there is the misconception of the lack of local, world-class health care specialists. At UHMC we take pride in being the home of renowned medical specialists across a broad range of specialities who have been trained at the top medical schools across the globe and with the expertise that is comparable to the world’s leading specialists in their respective fields.

Ultramodern Facilities

Thirdly, UHMC is continuously upgrading its ultramodern and patient-friendly facilities, ensuring that the specialists at the Centre can effectively utilise their advanced knowledge and techniques to produce the best possible outcomes for those we serve.

Our specialists are also supported by advanced diagnostic services provided by The Nairobi Hospital Diagnostic Laboratory Services and The Aga Khan University Hospital Diagnostic Imaging Clinic. Both are located on the first floor of UHMC.

This commitment to collaboration and partnership is what continues to steer UHMC as the go-to medical centre for both Kenyan and international patients.
