Elgeyo Marakwet County government unveils a 60 bed capacity unit at Iten Referral Hospital

03, Oct 2014

Elgeyo Marakwet county government has unveiled a 60 bed capacity unit at Iten referral hospital in a bid to improve provisions of health service in the region. The move is also aimed at decongesting the Moi teaching and referral hospital in Eldoret which currently serves the entire north rift region and western parts of the country. The new wards will complement the acquisition of modern medical equipment, laboratory supplies, theatre equipment, incubators, delivery beds, mattresses, bed sheets and laundry machines in an attempt to ensure there is ease access to medical services. Area governor Alex Tolgos said he was concerned about the high number of local residents who rush to Eldoret in search of health services when the same could be offered at within his county.
