COUNTY SET TO UPLIFT SUBA AND MBITA SUB COUNTY HEALTH FACILITIES TO BE FULLY OPERATIONALHoma-Bay-Asego
Plans are set to open the 100 million worth ultra-modern morgue facility at Suba sub-county hospital to aid service delivery within the region.
The 35 capacity mortuary with modern cold rooms has been established, with only drainage facility works pending.
County health executive Prof. Richard Muga during a visit at the facility on Monday, said the department will pay the remaining bit that will make the facility fully operational.
“This is an excellent mortuary where the County Government of Homa bay has invested a lot. We have agreed that we will have it opened to better serve the people of this area,” said Professor Muga.
The Professor also announced that the County Government shall post one radiologist to Suba Sub County Hospital in a bid to improve service delivery.
“I have found out that you lack a Radiologist to operate the very good machines found in the X-Ray room. We are going to identify one and post here immediately,” he added.
He also went to inspect the proposed Sindo Medical Training College in Gingo where construction is ongoing and assured the residents of the Governor’s commitment to speed up the process to enable the first batch of medical students serve the facility.
During an inspection of Mbita sub county hospital, Prof. Muga and his health team announced that the newly built theatre unit will soon become operational with the posting of two doctors to help ease congestion following the steady rise of inpatients.
Health Chief officer Mr. Duncan Ojiem, and county Health Director promised to work closely with the health workers and urged them to uphold ethics.
