They attributed the cause of action to be due to some administrative challenges they are facing which they need to work on before resuming its operations.

Nairobi Women Hospital was on the spot over allegations of overcharging patients.

Doctors at the hospital are also accused of recommending unnecessary tests and procedures to inflate the bill.

Addressing the issue, the board of directors promised to investigate the matter.

The Kenya Medical Practitioners Board has also stepped in to confirm the allegations.

Kenyans leaked information purporting that the hospital has put in place targets for the doctors including daily admission s.

Through a joint meeting, the insurance firms resolved to withdraw themselves from accepting bills from the hospital until when the matter is handled.
