New state-of-the-art hospital opens in Kirinyaga County

President William Ruto on Tuesday, 13 June 2023, opened the largest medical complex in Kirinyaga County, elevating Kerugoya County Referral Hospital from a Level 4 to a Level 5 health facility.

“The healthcare function will and has been better managed by the county governments and if anyone needs a testimony and confirmation of the same, they should see the hospital that has been built by the County Government of Kirinyaga”, said the president as he reiterated that the government will not take over the health management from counties.

The state-of-the-art Medical Complex takes the county’s medical care a notch higher by offering a full spectrum of specialized services for which residents would earlier be referred to facilities outside the county.

The hospital project that has been fully funded by the County Government was part of fulfilling the county’s development blueprint – The Mountain Cities 2032 which designates Kirinyaga Central constituency as the Wellness City.

Some the services offered at the 341 bed capacity hospital include specialist consultancy in pediatrics, ENT, oncology, dermatology, orthopedics, medical outpatient clinic, surgical outpatient, neuro-pediatric clinic, obstetrics and gynecology. The hospital also has a 12bed ICU and a 12 HDU and has all its beds fitted with oxygen.

The opening of the new hospital was hailed by leaders from across the political divide as a sign of progress in the devolution of healthcare services.

“My sister Anne, I salute you” Cabinet Secretary for Health, Dr. Nakumicha Wafula, said that she was very proud of Waiguru as she demonstrated that women can work.

“I have not seen a leader who works as hard as Waiguru. She is visionary, resilient, determined and focused” Said Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja.

Governor Anne Waiguru said that the accomplishment of the project is a demonstration that devolution works and if adequately supported, counties will be able to provide affordable and accessible healthcare to the citizens.

“As the Chairperson of the Council of Governors, I can assure you that the devolution of healthcare services has had a significant impact… over 90% of Kenyan population currently live within five kilometers or one-hour travel time to a health facility” she highlighted.

The hospital promises to provide much-needed healthcare services to the residents of Kirinyaga and will help to reduce the need for medical referrals to other counties.
