COUNTY GOVERNMENT TO CONSTRUCT, RENOVATE, UPGRADE OVER 70 HEALTH FACILITIES
The County Government of Nandi has announced plans to construct, upgrade and renovate over 70 health facilities in Nandi in an effort to bring services closer to the people and decongest the Nandi Hills and Kapsabet County Referral Hospital.
County Executive Committee Member for Health and Sanitation, Ruth Koech revealed that the project would be completed this financial year.
The county executive committee member further explained that the upgraded facilities would benefit residents of the six sub counties in Nandi County.
The facilities will be upgraded and some elevated to the level three and four status which means that they will now offer child health, accident and emergency services as well as non-clinical support and referral services.
“The upgrades have already been budgeted for and once we are done the impact will be felt in the county,” the Health CEC explained.
“Cases of people admitting themselves or mothers taking their children to KCRH for immunisation since such functions should be carried out at the lower level facilities,” stated Ruth.
