Ladnan is a new general hospital situated in the Pangani area of Nairobi that has a vision to revolutionize the healthcare sector in the area and in Kenya at large.
Ladnan Hospital is committed to enhancing the quality of life of our patients by providing high quality, cost efficient, multi-disciplinary medical services , delivered with a personal touch.
We approach clinical quality by focusing on structures, processes and outcomes of care. Superior clinical outcomes (or end results) can only be achieved through infrasturcture of a high standard and care processes that are sophisticated, reliable and internationally tested against international benchmarks. Our commitment to transparency regarding patient safety is demonstrated in the annual Clinical Governance Report, published as part of the annual report of Ladnan Hospital. The purpose of this report is to present an overview of clinical quality activities within the Ladnan Hospital.
- Anaesthesia: There are three main types of anaesthesia:
- General anaesthesia: This is where the patient is put into a state of controlled unconsciousness for the duration of the operation.
- Regional anaesthesia: This involves injection of local anaesthetic which numbs a particular region of the patient’s body. The patient will be conscious but free from pain and may receive some sedative if he or she wishes to.
- Local anaethesia: This involves injection of local anaesthetic to numb a smaller portion of the body. The patient will be conscious but free from pain.
Cardiology: Cardiology department is equipped to deal with a wide range of heart conditions , using both preventative and therapeutic treatment modalities.
The following investigations are regularly done:
- Diagnostic tests
Electrocardiogram (ECG) – recording of the electrical waves from the heart to assess the heart rate, rhythm, heart wall thickness and chamber enlargement as well as early detection of heart attacks.
- Chest x-ray
To assess heart size and to look for early signs of heart failure.
- Holter monitoring
A small walkman size device connected to the chest wall with wires, which records the ECG for 24 hours.
- Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
A special blood pressure cuff is connected to the patient’s arm which records the blood pressure and pulse rate on a cassette recorder.
- Treadmill exercise test
The patient walks on a computerised treadmill at a predetermined speed and gradient.
- Echo doppler test with colour doppler blood flow imaging
Using ultrasound the heart is imaged from various angles. Heart chambers, muscles, valves and blood vessels can all be seen on the video screen and measurements made
- Intensive cardiac care unit (ICCU)
We have a state-of-the art intensive care unit with facilities for bed side and central monitoring of ECG, blood oxygen, bllood pressure or venous pressure.
- Inpatient Rooms
Private ward rooms also include facilities for bedside monitoring of ECG and blood oxygen saturation.
- Preventative cardiology
Risk factor profiling is done for all patients attending the department. Early detection and treatment of risk factors for heart attacks is the only method of reducing the incidence of death and disability due to heart attacks in the community.

In late 2011, Ladnan Hospital was the first multi-disciplinary hospital in Pangani. As a healthcare facility, it has continued to dominate Eastland’s healthcare landscape in terms of the quality of its medical staff, the breadth of services it offers and the standard of equipment it operates.
It was opened to serve the medical needs of family households in Nairobi and beyond by providing 24 hour in and outpatient facilities, maternity, theater, laboratory, pharmacy, radiology (x-ray & ultrasound), Dialysis, ICU/HDU Unit and dental services. The hospital has a competitive advantage due to its average size which gives room for personalized attention to patients.
