Governor Lenku during the commissioning of the Matasia Hospital.
Residents of Olkeri, Keekonyokie and parts of Nkaimurunya ward have finally benefited from a Level Three Hospital.
The Matasia Health Centre was launched today, several months after it opened doors to patients without being fully complete due to public demand.
Governor Joseph Ole Lenku and his Health CEC member, Esther Somoire, led Matasia’s Community in welcoming the County’s newest health facility.
The residents were full of joy and several of them narrated the ordeal they had endured while seeking health services in hospitals far away in Ngong and Ongata Rongai.
The hospital’s importance to the local community is indicated by the 8,000 patients it has treated since November last year.
According to the Health Centre’s register, the hospital has also treated 4,000 children while immunizing 30 children every day.
It also handles about 30 Family planning clients and about 30 Ante Natal Care mothers a day.
Governor Lenku said the County will continue constructing the remaining infrastructure buildings as well as equipping the hospital with the necessary equipment.
” We shall increase the nurses from the current four. We shall also build a maternity in due course, ” said Governor Lenku.
The Governor was accompanied by area MCA Peter Gitau, Moses saoyo kusero, James Waichanguru Ndirangu ( Nkaimurunya), Mwathi Pere ( Ongata Rongai) and nominated MCAs Ngogoyo Onesmus, Hon Mario Sandra Pepeon and Lucy Mathenge.
