The Nairobi Hospital has a 24-hour Accident and Emergency (A&E) Centre which is conveniently located at the Hospitals main entrance. The Centre has increased its capacity over the years and is now able to serve over 500 patients every day.
There is an adequate complement of medical staff made up of doctors, nurses, Radiographers, pharmacists and various supportive staff. A fully fledged Pediatric Department specifically designed for children and handles all pediatric cases.

The staff of the A & E Centre is made up of certified professionals in Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Advanced Trauma Life Support and Acute Psychological Counseling.
The Centre is equipped with a resuscitation room, X-ray, laboratory, theatre and pharmacy to manage disasters and emergencies. This makes it a one stop total quality medical emergency center. There is also a helicopter landing pad that provides quick access for patients evacuated and airlifted from various places across the country and region.
