OUR VISION at Texas Cancer Centre Kenya, is to be the premier cancer facility in sub-Saharan Africa. Named after the location of the largest cancer centre, Texas Cancer Centre (TCC) was started in July 2010 as a specialised cancer nursing home. This was in response to a gap that the founders of the hospital noted in the health care service provision in the region, where clients were unable to promptly access specialist cancer treatment services due to lack of knowledge about the right doctors and where to find the services with ease.
TCC was born out of the principle that accessible, affordable and quality healthcare should be available to everyone without compromising the quality of service or overall treatment outcome. With this in mind, the hospital has paved its position as a formidable player in the primary healthcare provider sector and is committed to continuously pursue excellence and provide world-class services to all its customers.
Initially the Centre only offered chemotherapy treatment as an outpatient service. Later, an inpatient facility in Hurlingham, Nairobi was built.
With assistance from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, TCC has been able to acquire and install a radiotherapy machine, set up a diagnostic laboratory and acquire x-ray machines and ultrasound equipment.
Today, the institution has grown into a leading private cancer care and treatment centre which is the process of building an ultramodern facility with state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment equipment across its four branches.
Besides offering 24-hour nursing care, and a host of several other services, the hospital also runs a cancer support group where cancer patients get together. We not only believe in strengthening our patients’ physical strength, but also trust that emotional wellbeing goes a great deal into building our patients’ faith in the treatment they are receiving.
As such, we strive to be recognized and trusted by people living with cancer as the premier center for healing and hope.
