Kajiado County Governor Joseph Ole Lenku has launched the ground breaking construction of Saina Outpatient Dispensary at Dallalekutuk ward that aims to benefit at least 15,000 patients.
Governor Lenku revealed that Kajiado County Referral hospital has been praised for offering good medical services, making the hospital congested and doctors overwhelmed by the high number of patients therefore Saina dispensary would ease the congestion by treating patients with minor illnesses.
“We have experienced challenges in Kajiado referral hospital because Kajiado residents lack a dispensary where they can receive outpatient treatment. In order to solve the congestion at referral hospital, we have started the construction of a small dispensary that we are launching today and I believe in less than four months the dispensary will be operational,” revealed Governor Lenku adding that the dispensary will offer three main services.
“In this dispensary, we will have a theatre section, a maternity wing for women to deliver safely and an outpatient section. The services in this hospital will be free because it will be a community dispensary,” added Governor Lenku.
