Why Day Hospitals?

Epione Surgical Partners Home Banner

Day hospitals provide a convenient, quality driven, patient-centric environment for doctors and patients, with generally better outcomes than traditional acute hospitals.

Shorter waiting periods

Shorter waiting periods

Surgeons can maintain their schedules without interruption due to emergencies that can delay scheduled surgeries in the hospital setting. The waiting times for patients are therefore reduced and only confined to surgery and recovery times.

Lower readmission rates

Lower readmission rates

The patients have lower risks of being re-admitted into the hospitals due to hospital acquired infections. Re-admission rates currently stand at about 35-40% for acute hospitals whereas day hospitals are currently experiencing 5-10% re-admission rates.

Reduced cost of care

Reduced cost of care

Most of the procedures performed at day hospitals cost about 50-70% of the price being charged at acute hospitals depending on the type of procedure. This is due to the fact that day hospitals are much smaller and confined spaces with very low overhead expenses.

The Market Opportunity

In Africa, the ambulatory services market is projected to grow to $25.0bn by 2022.



However, up to more than 90% of the procedures are currently being performed in acute hospitals, leaving the day hospital market largely untapped.



Epione aims to increase the number of day procedures performed at day hospitals to about 25% from the current less than 10% in the next 5 years.
