Mahatma Gandhi aptly said, “It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”

Healthcare reform is one of the greatest challenges in our world today, and more so on the African continent. In keeping with SST’s mantra to transform lives as we change communities, the new healthcare division specializes in turnkey healthcare solutions in an effort to tackle some of Kenya’s foremost healthcare delivery challenges.

Our solutions help unlock immense value so hospitals and medical specialists can do what they do best - provide high quality care to patients. Our objective is to offer a one-stop shop across six distinct healthcare services namely: medical equipment supply, installation and after-sales service; construction of new medical facilities or upgrade of existing facilities infrastructure; mobile clinics fabrication and deployment; medical applications training; turnkey healthcare programs implementation (PMO); and hospital information systems (HIS) and healthcare information technology (HCIT) deployment.

Our services target governments (national or local), hospitals (individual or groups) and private practice (doctors), and seek to enable delivery of quality, accessible and affordable healthcare across the following eight medical faculties: radiology, oncology, laboratory diagnostics, renal, neonatal, maternal, intensive care and primary health.

In Kenya, medical costs are rising amid growing demand for high-quality medical services. Additionally, the disparity between urban residents and rural residents in access to medical facilities has become an issue. Other issues include a shortage of medical practitioners. This investment will support the digitalization of medical services and lead to more efficient medical work, while also raising the level of medical services by using cloud computing to share data. IT-based medicine will also make it possible to provide treatment and diagnosis to remote regions.
