The health sector in Nandi County has faced major infrastructural development over the past two years.
Under the leadership of Governor Stephen Sang, the health sector has received massive funding to support transformation of various hospitals within the county not only at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital but also in all the sub county hospitals that have benefited from the government’s robust equipment distribution plan.
Governor Sang is keen on availing residents easy access to specialized treatment at lower costs.
