International Patients


Receiving medical care in another country can be difficult and stressful. At The Karen Hospital, we understand this and we are here to your trip as smooth and comfortable as possible. We take a team approach to your care and combine your medical need and personal preferences in to an experience that will make you feel as close to home as possible.

Our International patients’ desk will facilitate your coming to the hospital for treatment and your travel back home.

Before Travelling:

  1. Confirm with your doctor that you are fit to travel
  2. Understand fully what procedure/treatment you will receive in our hospital and the expected follow-up
  3. Please note that in some cases the final decisions on your treatment plan may change after the Doctor meets and examines you in person. In such a case, the doctor may recommend a different treatment.

Appointment Scheduling

The hospital facilitates prior scheduling of appointments to confirm on doctor’s availability during their arrival at Kenya and ensure a minimal turnaround time at the hospital.

Treatment Packages

Special treatment packages are offered for international patients to accommodate their requirements and needs for a cost-efficient treatment. However, please note that there could be some changes to this package once the patient has been reviewed by our clinical team

Visa Assistance

The hospital provides assistance in handling and processing of all documents required for the permit of visa to make sure that our patients do not face any hassle in obtaining their treatment. You may need a medical visa to come to Kenya for treatment. Once we get a detailed medical history we will issue you with a letter to help get the medical visa.
