The opening of a 22- bed capacity twin ward at Kyambeke Health Center in Ilima ward, by Deputy Governor H.E Lucy Mulili on Thursday will provide much-needed medical services to an estimated over 5,000 residents.
The building which has been realized through a donation from the “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints” to the county government will cut the distance of seeking medication elsewhere from the far-flung hilly Ilima villages.
“This facility will put to an end the long hours of traveling to other health facilities in the neighboring sub-counties,” Mulili stated
Flanked by the area MCA Hon. Jonathan Muthoka, nominated MCA Hon. Sarah Mbilo and Ag. Chief Officer of Health Services Dr. Stephen Ndolo, Mulili reiterated the government’s commitment to delivering accessible and affordable Healthcare services to all the people.
She noted that the county has partnered with KEMSA so as to ensure a steady supply of Medicine to all the county health facilities.
The church funded two wards (female and male) and supplied equipment including patient beds, an oxygen concentrator, an autoclave, medical refrigerators, wheelchairs, and furniture among others.
