Chairman's Report

Sabatia Eye Hospital has had a very successful year despite the slow start for the year which followed a long electioneering period that otherwise would have significantly affected our service delivery.

The hospital successfully developed and implemented the 2018-2021 Strategic Plan which outlines the key strategic areas we intend to give priority in the next four years. We are enthusiastic about our vision in maintaining our hospital as a center of excellence committed to providing quality healthcare with a reputation for exemplary eye care services, training of eye care workers and sustainable growth.

We believe in and practice the highest levels of medical ethics. Patient safety and quality service assume the highest priority at Sabatia Eye Hospital. We give equal treatment to all our patients ranging from the highest dignitaries in the society as well as patients from all socio-economic strata. This is based on our core value of offering ethical and dignified services to all our clients.
We are at present, together with our development partners, working on three major capital investments being:

  1. setting up of an additional 36 bed Pediatric Ophthalmology center with a dedicated theatre and outpatient area all equipped with state of the art ophthalmic equipment– when completed in 2019, we should be able to give all our children a better accommodation all our patients. This project is co-funded by Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), CBM, Rotary Club International and Sabatia Eye Hospital
  2. Upgrading of the training center to support current hospital training programs which include Bsc. Comprehensive Ophthalmology and Cataract Surgery ( Bsc. COCS) in collaboration with Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT), Ophthalmic Skills Upgrading Course ( OSUC), and elective programs for University of Nairobi, Masinde Muliro University and Kenya Medical Training Centre. This project is currently supported by internally generated funds from the hospital but we are hoping to invite other partners to support the training program 
  3.  Extension of the existing theatre from the current 3 tables to 5 tables and a general upgrade of the theatre equipment. This project is being fully supported by CBM Italy 

We recognize technology plays a vital role in delivering superior healthcare and hence we invest continuously in procuring the best of equipment to serve our patients and improve our service delivery which has helped us stay above the competition.
The year 2018 also marked a shift of gears into a new management model where the hospital reviewed its Human Resources manual and the organization structure. The board separated the roles of the CEO from that of the Medical Director with Mr. Were Wycliffe being appointed the Hospital CEO and Secretary to the board and Dr. Jean Claude Niyonzima being appointed the Medical Director. The change in the model is in line with the 2018-2021 SP and the overall hospital growth strategy where the MD has more time to concentrate on the clinical operations of the hospital while CEO is the overall head of the institution.
I take this opportunity to thank all the members of the board, management, and staff of Sabatia Eye Hospital for being our greatest asset and for making all our plans actualized. I also thank all our founding members and development partners as well the Government of Kenya and the County Government of Vihiga for the support accorded in 2018. We look forward to a greater 2019 and beyond.
Our greatest gift is to remain the beacon of hope to all people on all life seasons, both in times of illness and in times of wellness. We Treat, He Heals
