The facility, whose construction begun mid-2019, is expected to be completed by September 2020.
The project is in line with the county government’s massive reforms in the health sector in order to boost the implementation of President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
The medical complex had a 250 -bed capacity inpatient section that will add to the existing space to make it a 500-bed capacity facility and added that the project was geared towards transforming the county into a wellness city.
The project is fully funded by the county government to the tune of Ksh1 billion with technical support from the national government.
The facility will have an ICU, HDU, an outpatient wing, theatre, emergency and casualty department, pediatric, surgical and medical wards, counselling and palliative care, pharmacy, CT scan and X-ray.
The hospital will have specialist consultations, with a general surgeon, paediatrician, ENT, physician, obstetrician and gynaecologist among others.
