List of 15 Newly Built Hospitals in Nairobi Unveiled

The menace of overcrowding of public hospitals in Kenya especially in Nairobi has been with us for decades since independence however a solution has now been found. This was revealed on Tuesday 2021-10-19 when the Kenyan Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita posted a list of new hospitals which have been built by the Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS).

Waita’s revelation came just a day after the former KMPDU official Doctor Oluga commended the government for her effort in ensuring that the Kenyatta National Hospital is no longer overcrowded.

“Who has noticed that Kenyatta National Hospital is no longer congested? Well, over 160,000 patients who would otherwise go to KNH have been attended to in 15 newly established hospitals in the last 6 months, said Oluga.

This appreciation message from a senior medical doctor prompted Mr. Nzioka Waita to give out a full list of the hospitals which were built during the tenure of NMS and which have helped in easing the congestion in Nairobi’s health sector.

Below is the list of the 15 hospitals listed by Mr. Waita;

Riruta Health Centre - Kawangware

Lucky Summer Health Centre

Gumba Mathare Health Centre

Muthua Uthiru Health Centre

Kiamaiko Dispensary

Reuben Health Centre - Mukuru kwa kwa Reuben

Njega Health Centre - Mukuru Kwa Njega

Zimmerman Picken Dispensary – Githurai

Ngomongo Dispensary – Korogocho

Ngundu Kamulu Health Centre

Kianda 42 Health Centre

Gochagi Dispensary - Kangemi

Kayole Soweto Dispensary - Soweto

Ushirika Health Centre - Dandora

Tasia Health Centre

While voicing his appreciation over the completion of the 15 hospitals, Waita acknowledged the effort of the NMS who initiated and oversaw the building of those health centres. He further added that the original blueprint of the project was aimed at creating 24 such hospitals and therefore there are nine more to go.

The NMS took over the management of Nairobi County after the controversial impeachment of the former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko.
