More than seven years of operations have made the Diani Beach Hospital an integral part of Diani, a tourist resort identified with the chain of hotels and luxurious villas that line Diani Beach.

The hospital is accessible to everybody and has filled a big void in comprehensive health care that had for a very long time forced patients in the area to endure the inconvenience of long distance travel to seek similar medical attention in Mombasa.

Diani Beach Hospital is proud to have one of the country’s most well equipped hospitals with high standards of medical care at the Kenyan Coast. The hospital’s high standards are comparable to most of its European counterparts.

Diani Beach Hospital is recognized by IAMAT (International Association for Medical Assistance to Travelers)

The design and ambiance of the hospital also tends to maintain the continuum of the tourists “pampered status” in the hotels, as is reflected in the size and the orientation of the rooms, the furnishing and the extras like satellite TV, DVD and provision for internet browsing in the rooms.
