NEEDS BETTER HEALTH FACILITIES
Kabogo said the Thika Level-5 Hospital will have a state-of-the-art maternity and neonatal wing, whose construction is still ongoing. He said Kiambu Level-4 Hospital is also undergoing renovation to boost its patient handling capacity. The county government has added dental units to the Wangige, Githunguri and Karuri Level-4 hospitals. “Soon, a state-of-the-art dental unit will be opened at the Thika Level-5 Hospital to handle all specialties in dental cases and surgeries. Level-2 and level-3 health facilities have increased to 70 from 52 in 2013,” Kabogo said.
