- The hospital will ease congestion at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital.
- The county has already kicked off construction of a Sh340 million hospital in Naro Moru.
- Once operational, the hospital in Kiawara will be used to train students studying at the KMTC campus.
Kieni MP Kanini Kega has secured Sh30 million for the building of a second level four hospital in the expansive constituency.
The lawmaker told residents of Kieni West Sub-County that the Ministry of Health had allocated Sh30 million for building the hospital in Kiawara after the constituency purchased a 10-acre piece of land.
The hospital will ease congestion at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital and save patients from the burden of travelling for over 50 kilometres to access medical care in public facilities.
NARO MORU HOSPITAL
The county has already kicked off construction of a Sh340 million hospital in Naro Moru which is in Kieni East Sub-County.
This will be the first big hospital in the area since independence as the constituency has only health centres and dispensaries.
The MP noted that plans to establish a Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) in Kiawara are at an advanced stage after officials visited the proposed site and supported the building of the new campus.
“We have bought land for the construction of the hospital and the national government has already set aside funds for it. In a few months, we will have an operation level four hospital that will bring reprieve to residents,” Mr Kega said.
