In operation since 1998, AIC-CURE International Hospital in Kijabe, Kenya, is Africa’s first orthopedic pediatric teaching hospital for children with disabilities. Faced with a growing demand for services ranging from orthotics to orthopedic surgeries, the CURE team looked for master planning services to update its infrastructure systems and adapt to increasing patient demand on the campus.

The masterplan includes an in-depth infrastructure assessment of the existing facilities’ electrical, mechanical, plumbing, sanitation and buildings. Alongside the infrastructure assessment, a healthcare delivery assessment was performed to identify gaps and inefficiencies that can be addressed to maximize capacity and quality of care.
An onsite visioning session was held with the CURE Kijabe team to identify critical objectives for the project. Using the knowledge acquired during the existing conditions review a set of solutions was developed for the challenges the CURE team and facilities were facing in regards to current operations and future growth. CURE Kijabe’s 5- 10 year implementation plan will allow for it to update and expand its facilities through coordinated spatial and infrastructure plans.
