KENYA – The government of Kenya is set to construct a mother and baby wing and an outpatient wing at the Nakuru Level 5 Hospital which serves a population of over 10 counties.

The facility will be a game-changer in reducing mother and child mortality rates in the region and will provide essential services to the community.

The outpatient wing will have a capacity to serve over 3,000 people daily, providing efficient and prompt response to population health needs.

The specialised outpatient wing at the Nakuru County Referral and Teaching Hospital is a crucial step forward in providing efficient healthcare services to the community.

With its continuous availability of services, the outpatient wing will play a vital role in ensuring that healthcare services are accessible to all, regardless of location or time.

With the support of our leaders, this facility will ensure that mothers and babies receive the care they need, when they need it.

In conclusion, the new mother and baby wing at the Nakuru Level 5 Hospital is an exciting development that will have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of mothers and babies in Nakuru and surrounding counties.
