Mayo clinic has branches all over the place whereas Kenyatta hospital does not have many branches which make it difficult to access for patients who leave far and are in need of quality treatment.
Mayo Clinic has established schools that teach medicine and scientific education but Kenyatta hospital has not.
Mayo has online services for patients which are an easier way to access medical facilities and they also have the needed equipments to treat certain serious ailments while Kenyatta does not.
In conclusion Mayo clinic is a well established centre that renders nothing but the best to their patients, their concentration is only for the interest of their patients. They have established good facilities that meet the patients’ interests and they use up to date technology. Kenyatta National Hospital is also concerned with their patients’ well being but it does not have the standard that Mayo Clinic has and most of the equipments needed to save lives.
