Machakos Hospital set to be upgraded

24 June 2014, 16:30

Machakos - Machakos County Governor, Alfred Mutua announced plans to upgrade the Level 5 Hospital in the region.

It will be equipped with major facilities to ensure that it delivered improved services.

Mutua was speaking when he made an impromptu visit to Machakos Level 5 Hospital where he checked on services being given to patients and the general state of the facility.

“The Hospital serves an expansive region and much will be done including upgrading it with Intensive Care Unit, Renal Dialyses services, oncology services to cater for cancer clients and a new 10 bed private wing to ensure that it gives the best services expected of a hospital of its calibre,” said Mutua.

Machakos Level 5 Hospital is the biggest public hospital in the county.

The governor said he was impressed with the standards that the hospital has achieved so far.

“The hospital is clean, patients are getting attended to faster, patients’ diet has improved, essential medicines are available at the hospital and doctors are motivated to serve the people,” said Mutua.

He added that these improvements have made the public regain their trust in the hospital.

Mutua said that Machakos County is equally equipping all hospitals in the county with modern medical facilities, equipment and adequate drugs, improving the health infrastructure by upgrading and building new dispensaries, health centers into community hospitals with maternity facility, mini theatre, laboratory, X-ray and modern inpatient facilities and implementation of a new countywide electronic health record system.
