Equity Afia, the medical franchise of Equity Group Foundation (EGF) has opened a new medical centre in Muranga County, bringing the total number of outlets within its concession to 36. This will be the second clinic in the county after Equity Afia Kenol that will serve residents from Muranga and its surrounding environs.
The new medical centre which is located at ECN Building along Uhuru Street and managed by a qualified Consultant In-charge will offer residents a wide range of quality and affordable healthcare services including but not limited to; general consultation, dental services, optical services, dermatological services, paediatric services, nutrition services, specialised care in obstetrics and gynaecology and wellness services.
Speaking during the opening of the facility, Equity Group Board Chairman Professor Isaac Macharia noted that the opening of the Muranga franchise is part of a larger strategic plan that will see Equity Afia provide easy access to quality healthcare in the country.
The Equity Afia franchise of medical centres have been established by alumni of the Equity Leaders Program (ELP) who have trained in the medical field and use the program to inspire each other, share ideas on how to grow and improve the franchise but most of all contribute to giving back to society by offering their skills and knowledge for the greater good of the community.
Other than offering treatment, Equity Afia as a franchise has invested in preventative healthcare by offering clients and the general public advisory services and creating time and resources for community health development programmes such as medical camps and the training of various groups such as teachers, child care givers and corporate institutions among others.
