Nairobi Women’s Hospital CEO Felix Wanjala has stepped down.
This is to allow an investigation into allegations of malpractices against the health facility.
It did not last long before Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) slapped the facility with a suspension of services as well.
The taxman suspended the facility from its list of approved medical care providers in a memo dated February 5.
In a memo sent to staff on Wednesday, KRA explained that the suspension would remain effective until a slew of contentious issues between the Authority and the hospital are resolved.
KRA further advised its staff to seek medical care from other approved providers as listed on the company’s website.
The Association of Kenyan Insurers (AKI) also suspended the hospital from their accredited service providers.
In a press statement, AKI said the suspension would hold until a review on the quality and the cost of services at the facility was completed.
Meanwhile, insurance companies, among them AAR, Jubilee, Old Mutual and CIC, also suspended payment of bills in the nine branches of the hospital, citing administrative concerns.
