NANDI COUNTY SET TO BEGIN CONSTRUCTION OF FIVE ULTRA MODERN HEALTH COMPLEXES
The construction of five modern health complexes in Nandi County will begin soon.
A tender for the construction of the modern hospital complexes was advertised recently and construction will begin soon after evaluation exercise is completed.
Governor Sang’s administration wants to make sure patients are treated in Nandi and not referred to far-flung facilities out of the county.
The first phase of the health complexes is expected to be the finest in the region.
The over 300 bed capacity Kapsabet County Referral Hospital for instance will boast a Mother and Baby Wing, a High Dependence Unit (HDU), Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Emergency and Response Unit, state-of-the-art theatres and a Cancer Screening Centre at a cost of about Sh 500 million with the first phase costing a tune of 100 million.
This is one of the major projects that the county government is undertaking to reduce referral cases from Nandi to MTRH and Nairobi and also improve health care services in the county.
Other facilities are Chepterwai Hospital Complex, Kabiyet Hospital Complex, Kobujoi Hospital Complex and Nandi Hills Hospital.
