There's a deep excavation in progress in Kilimani opposite Yaya Centre and next To Edifice Hotel. No project site board put up as of this morning. Anyone with an idea what project this might be?

KNH to put up Sh15bn seven-storey private hospital

Kenya’s largest referral hospital plans to put up a Sh15 billion seven-storey private hospital to fund public services in the parent institution.

In a public notice posted in the dailies, Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) said the 300-bed facility that will stand on 3.6 hectares will be developed under a design, construct, equip, finance, operate and maintain model within the next five years.

“Kenyatta National Hospital Board (KNHB) now wishes to have developed a separate private hospital (the Project) under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement that will serve fee-paying private patients, hence providing a source of additional funding to support the main public hospital,” says the published request for qualification (RFQ) notice.

The level six facility whose construction starts in 2020 is set to offer premium services and will be a standalone facility with 500 motor vehicle parking slots.

“The prospective bidder must have acted as a hospital operator for not less than five years in a performance-based Level 6 specialist healthcare facility under a public-public partnership contract or a privately run Level 6 facility with a minimum 300 beds,” says the RFQ.

I think equipping the hospital will cost more.

You are right. The cumulative cost of equipment for some units might cost more than the structure.

I hope some of the profits from the private wing will help to repair and run the public section. Plus it should be cheaper than the Narobi hospital across the street and all the other surrounding smaller health care providers in Upperhill and its environs.

Even that headline is totally wrong. KNH a public entity to use its funds (public) to put up a private hospital. What paradoxes are these? Are we normal people?

It is also simply not true that a 7 floor hospital would cost Ksh. 155 bn even after considering all the equipment they will install in it. Loot at the Kenyatta Universrity Hospital, which is a 650 bed facility with all specialized hospital equipment in it ccost Ksh. 8-10 bn. I am not sure of the exact amount but estimates put the cost to be around that. Think about that for a minute and let it sink in.
