MAJOR EXPANSION PREPARES KAPSABET COUNTY REFERRAL HOSPITAL FOR GROWING HEALTH CARE NEEDS
The county government of Nandi is committed to improving provision of health services to its people.
The nearly completed expansion and renovations at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital are designed and built to accommodate a projected increase in demand for health care in the hospital’s service area.
The construction of covered walkways linking theatre 2 and maternity – Nyayo Ward, OPD ablution block, renovations at MCH parking area including drive ways, construction of doctors lounge and renovation works at rehabilitation department is complete.
In addition to an expected increase in demand for emergency services, the hospital expansion and renovation will accommodate increased integrated outpatient services and additional office space for physicians.
The installation of an elevated steel brazed water tank 80,000 litres (20m high) is almost complete. Prior to the construction of the water tank tower, the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital had to rely on an underground water tank which needed electricity – presently being supplied by electricity to pump running water into the hospital facilities. With the new water tank, the hospital now has an uninterrupted supply of tap water.
The construction of the modern Mother and Baby Hospital Complex is currently ongoing.
