Today we marked another significant milestone in Machakos County when the investment my Government has put on health care paid off with the county’s first Neurosurgery.
The procedure, successfully performed on 52 years old Henry Mutinda was conducted this morning and the patient is recovering at the HDU ward at Machakos Level 5 hospital.
The entire procedure and subsequent treatments are free of charge under our universal health care program.
I am pleased that the hospital has modern theaters, an international style ICU and facilities that match some of the best hospitals in the world.
My plan is to transform our healthcare facilities to provide quality and efficient health services comparable to those found the the developed world. We have the will, the know how and the resources.
I congratulate my leadership in the ministry of health and the medical personnel for a job well done. I especially recognize the following heroes involved in the surgery:
Theatre manager: Halima Adan.
Neuro surgeon: Dr Sam Njiru
Assistant surgeon: Dr Doreen Mirowba
Anesthesiologist: Dr Wairimu Mwaura
