Commemoration festivities also included the planting of several trees, a tour of the hospital, tea and the unveiling of a commemorative plaque.
The hospital is also continuing to provide excellent service to the community by employing a new doctor, Dr. Oliver Sharack Mamati, who arrived at a critical time during a nurses’ strike. The government has seconded Dr. Harry Shivachi making our medical team a strong one. Staff changes also include Mr. William Wambugu, the new administrator, whose experience includes service at Kikuyu, Maua and other hospitals. There is still a need for a resident doctor.
As there is no mortuary in the area, a building project is underway to provide mortuary services locally. We are appealing to FUM and friends to come to our aid and support us in this project.
