Sanitas Hospital, the brain child of Australian entrepreneur Krishnamurthy Venkateswaran, is a modern private health care provider in Dar es Salaam established in October 2011.
Tanzanians loved the European ambience, cleanliness and standards and Tanzanian prices of Sanitas and supported it in large numbers making it a 24/7 busy and vibrant hospital.
Right from its inception Murthy developed a network of super-specialized surgeons in various disciplines who shared his values and got them to visit regularly & perform major surgeries right here at half the expense overseas. Patients could be with their loved ones during their most vulnerable moments in the comfort of their familiar environment and food. The concept caught on big time and hundreds upon hundreds of Tanzanians have undergone surgeries that may have otherwise been exported.
Sanitas, under Murthy’s leadership, is the only hospital in Tanzania that helps people suffering from Lymphoedema lead a near normal life.
