Over 10k Lives Transformed – KUTRRH’s IMIC Marks 2nd Anniversary

Exactly two years ago, KUTRRH boldly ushered in a new era by introducing the first-ever cyclotron and two ultramodern PET CT scanners in a public healthcare setup within Sub-Saharan Africa. This ground-breaking move, spearheaded by the visionary leadership under the Chairperson of the Board of Directors Prof. Olive Mugenda, the CEO Mr. Dagane, and IMIC’s Director Mr. Isaac Kamau, marked a monumental leap forward in the pursuit of cutting-edge medical technology.

Since its inception, the Integrated Molecular Imaging Center (IMIC )at KUTRRH has been a catalyst for change, impacting the lives of more than 10,300 patients. The cyclotron and PET CT scanners, coupled with a skilled and dedicated workforce, have not only served Kenya but have become a beacon of hope for the entire African continent. In the pursuit of Universal Health Coverage goals, KUTRRH has partnered with the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF) to make molecular imaging services available, accessible, and affordable to all.

The establishment of IMIC stands as a testament to the commitment to shielding patients from the economic burdens associated with catastrophic spending on ever-costly cancer diagnosis.

As the facility celebrates two years’ of transformative progress, the staff and management of KUTRRH reflect on the lives touched, the diseases uncovered, and the hope restored. KUTRRH’s pioneering strides in molecular imaging stand as a testament to what can be achieved when science, compassion, and leadership converge. The journey has just begun, and the future of healthcare in Africa looks brighter than ever.
