Wavinya commissions fully equipped level-3 hospital

Machakos Governor Wavinya Ndeti has commissioned a Level 3 community hospital at Kyumbi along the busy Nairobi-Mombasa highway to enhance healthcare provision for Kyumbi residents.

The hospital, which was built to ease pressure from Level 5 hospitals and serve the people on the busy highway at Makutano Junction, was also a gift from Purple Dot International Limited, who are property developers of residential homes in Kyumbi.

The governor, who was speaking at Kyumbi Level 3 during the commissioning, said that the hospital was strategically located to save lives given its location along the busy Nairobi-Mombasa highway, where traffic road accidents often happen.

The governor affirmed that the hospital is a testimony to what can be achieved through public-private partnerships (PPP) for the greater good of the county.

“This achievement is a result of collective vision and commitment from our donor partners, the Purple Dot, and I also call upon other donors to partner with us in various projects that will improve the livelihood of Machakos residents,” said Wavinya.

She further pointed out that as Machakos County government, they must commit to playing their role as a community to safeguard the infrastructure from the theft of drugs and to ensure the facility is used for the benefit of the people and future generations.

Wavinya promised Machakos residents that Kyumbi Level 3 is just one of the several hospitals they have recently built and are planning to add more so that healthcare provision will be the cornerstone of development in the county.

The county boss added that the new hospitals and the Community Health Promoter Programme, which they launched last week, will ensure Mwananchi does not have to travel long distances to seek medical services.

The fully equipped hospital has mother-and-child units, a theatre, a paediatric laboratory, an X-ray room, special clinics, an outpatient unit, and a nursing station.
