RESIDENTS TO BENEFIT FROM RENAL SERVICES AT NYAMACHE SUB COUNTY HOSPITAL

Patients with kidney failure in Kisii County will now access dialysis services at Nyamache Sub County Hospital in Bobasi following the launch of a five bed Renal Unit at the facility.

Governor James Ongwae today inaugurated the unit alongside a second theatre and a water supply system.

Previously, the services were only offered at the Kisii Teaching and Referral Hospital (KTRH) which has a capacity of 10 beds.

“We have added a new theatre that is fully equipped. Patients in need of kidney dialysis will no longer travel to KTRH for dialysis,” said Ongwae at the facility.

Governor Ongwae who was accompanied by his Deputy Joash Maangi said his administration will open such services in all Sub Counties in bid to bring services closer to people.

The governor who also commissioned a water supply system said water challenges at the facility and the nearby medical training college will be a thing of the past.

“Since upgrading of the facility to a Sub County hospital, my administration has installed modern diagnostic equipment, hired and deployed more doctors and other health workers, and; established a theatre complex that is operational alongside the renal unit and second theatre,” said Ongwae.

“My Government has invested heavily in the Health sector especially in infrastructure, Human Resource, provision of drugs and equipment and capacity building,” added the Governor.

Maangi said women who develop complications during birth no longer have to travel to Kisii for caesarean section procedures as they can access this service at the hospital.

Members of the County Assembly present led by the Deputy Speaker Devins Ngoge who also represents Masige East ward thanked the county government for the improved services at the hospital and vowed to work hand in hand with the county leadership to realise development.

Later, the governor graced a graduation ceremony of community Health Volunteers sponsored by the County Government in partnership with Living Goods.

The governor commended Living Goods for their support saying the trainees will help in empowering residents at the grassroots to improve productivity and thus reduce poverty, hunger and child and maternal deaths.

“The country faces a shortage of health workers hence the need to devise community health strategies to address community needs at local level. Kenya Vision 2030 emphasizes preventive healthcare and health promotion to improve healthcare and reduce the burden of illness in the community,” said Ongwae.

The Governor noted that the training of the community health volunteers came at an opportune time when the country is focussing on the attainment of Universal Health Coverage (UHC).

Living Goods Country Director Thomas Onyango and his deputy Ruth Ngechu stressed the importance of community health workers in solving global health challenges.
