Nanyuki hospi­tal to get a train­ing col­lege

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Rift Valley -

The Nanyuki Teach­ing and Re­fer­ral Hospi­tal will re­ceive Sh800 mil­lion ma­chines from the na­tional gov­ern­ment, Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta said on Mon­day.

He said the hospi­tal will be el­e­vated to a fully fledged teach­ing fa­cil­ity. Uhuru spoke while com­mis­sion­ing med­i­cal equip­ment at the fa­cil­ity.

He said the hospi­tal will cater to pa­tients from the neigh­bour­ing Meru, Isi­olo, Sam­buru and Ny­eri coun­ties. “Pa­tients who used to seek med­i­cal ser­vices from as far as Nairobi will be get­ting them here. We also want to ease travel costs,” Uhuru said.

The Pres­i­dent, Deputy Pres­i­dent Wil­liam Ruto, CSs and other guests were stopped in the town to ad­dress a crowd that had gath­ered in the streets, block­ing their con­voy.

Uhuru, who was on a two-day tour of the Mt Kenya re­gion, also launched con­struc­tion of a re­nal unit at the Nanyuki Teach­ing and Re­fer­ral Hospi­tal and com­mis­sioned ra­di­og­ra­phy equip­ment pur­chased by the state.
