Nairobi Women’s Hospital College has been rebranded to the Evercare College of Health Sciences in a move aimed at expanding the quality and standard of the medical courses offered at the institution. The Founder and Director of Strategy of The Nairobi Women’s Hospital group which comprises The Nairobi Women’s Hospital, Gender Violence Recovery Centre (GVRC) and Nairobi Women’s Hospital College, Dr. Sam Thenya, spoke at the opening event said: “I recognized a gap in the market for quality health sciences education. When I opened the College, I had a vision that we could transform healthcare through quality education and I have seen this vision become a reality over the years.” “Since inception in 2011, we have trained over 600 healthcare professionals; we will continue to do this as we expand our programmes so that we can have a greater impact on the quality of healthcare in Kenya, and the region. I am proud and honored to have The Evercare Group buy into and scale this vision to the next level,” said Dr. Thenya on Wednesday. Susan Pos, Chief Nursing Officer and Head of Quality for the Evercare Group, said at the announcement, “As Evercare we are constantly looking at ways we can have a greater impact on the service and delivery of healthcare in our markets so we can enhance skills, talent and the quality of care provided.” The Evercare College of Health Sciences will offer international standard specialist nursing programmes, as well as accredited programs for other healthcare disciplines such as pharmacy and allied health. In addition to offering specific healthcare programmes, the College will also be the first to offer front of house skills training, patient experience and service excellence courses ensuring that every employee has the right skills to improve the experience of every patient they encounter. Ruth Osoo, Principal for Evercare College of Health Sciences said, “We believe that Kenya needs nurses and other staff who are specialists and sub specialists in the care they provide. It’s no longer enough to just have generalists; we need to support consultants, nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals so our homegrown local talent can manage complex clinical cases resulting in improved patient outcomes throughout the country.” The College is not just open to Evercare but also welcomes other healthcare facility employees, as well as young adults who have graduated from school and want to pursue a career in healthcare. “The College will allow Kenyans and other nationalities take their careers to another level. It will help provide them with the skills and knowledge to lead and develop healthcare in our country and beyond,” said Dr. Thenya. The Evercare College of Health Sciences will provide a mix of virtual and in person courses.
