In the continuing efforts to upgrade community health services, the department of health and sanitation has embarked on major refurbishment projects on several health centres across the county. The project includes the refurbishment and some remodeling works.

To date, upgrade and expansion works are ongoing in Kapsabet County Referral Hospital, Nandi Hills Hospital, Kapseng’ere health centre and Serem health centre, while other facilities in different wards across the county are in the process of being renovated.

  County Executive Committee Member for health, Ruth Koech said the refurbishing programme, being undertaken by the department, is part of a thrust by the County Government to improve health care services at the community level, in order to enhance preventive care and reduce the incidences of non-communicable diseases (NCD).

“Expansion of our primary care centres will allow for curative actions and also improve the preventive side of care,” Ruth stated.

“The idea is to have institutions that function as mini hospitals with extended hours, and diagnostic treatment that provide quality and affordable healthcare,” she noted.

Kilibwoni Health Centre is undergoing a series of renovations to upgrade its delivery of community health services.

The scope of work at the Kilibwoni Health Centre includes renovation of the roof; tiling; plumbing and electrical works; paving and landscaping of the premises; and providing furniture and equipment.

The facility provides maternal and child health, dental, as well as curative services to residents of Kilibwoni and surrounding areas.

Ms Chelagat Caroline, a resident of Kilibwoni trading centre expressed gratitude for the work done.
