By Seliphar Machoni

The Kakamega Teaching and Referral Hospital, which has been stalled for some time, is set to be completed.

The hospital, which is located in Kakamega County, is expected to provide much-needed healthcare services to the people of the region.

The completion of the hospital will bring relief to the residents who have been eagerly awaiting its opening. Once operational, the hospital will offer a wide range of medical services, including specialist care and treatment for various health conditions.

The project, which was started several years ago, faced numerous challenges that resulted in delays. However, the government has now stepped in to ensure that the hospital is completed and fully operational as soon as possible.

The Kakamega Teaching and Referral Hospital will be a significant addition to the healthcare infrastructure in the region, improving access to quality medical care for the local population.

Health Cabinet Secretary Susan Nakhumicha reiterated the Government’s commitment to completing the Kakamega Teaching and Referral Hospital (KTRH) during her visit to Butere Sub County Hospital.

Accompanied by Deputy Governor Ayub Savula and area MP Tindi Mwale, Nakhumicha announced plans to establish a multi-agency team to assess the readiness of the stalled facility for upgrading to a Level Six Hospital.

“The facility should serve as the primary public referral hospital in the region and neighboring counties such as Vihiga, Bungoma, and Busia,” emphasized Nakhumicha, calling on local elected leaders to collaborate harmoniously to ensure the project’s completion.

Expressing confidence in the project, Nakhumicha highlighted the need for a comprehensive approach, including effective management post-completion.

Deputy Governor Savula revealed ongoing discussions with investors from India to provide financial support for equipping the facility. President William Ruto has also committed Sh200 million from the supplementary budget.

Furthermore, Nakhumicha assured approval for the construction of the Kenya Medical Training Centre campus (KMTC) in Butere Sub County, primarily funded by the National Government Constituency Development Fund.
