Increased bed capacity in the Hospital with addition of 9 more general ward beds – The Uhuru Ward.
Likoni clinic bed capacity was increased from 6 to 22 with expansion into a new building adjacent to the existing clinic.
March 2019 saw the completion of one of the finest Intensive Care Units set-ups in Kwale County with a state of the art 3 bed ICU. The ICU is fully equipped to handle any emergencies as per international norms. The ICU team received a major fillip with the recruitment of a fulltime in-house Intensivist and a dedicated ICU-specialist Head Nurse. The ICU staffing capacity was increased to 4 nurses.
Further advances were made with the addition of a new Endoscopy suite with the latest endoscopic instruments thus placing the Hospital as one of the only facility in the region to perform both upper and lower GI endoscopies.
New in-house consultants, to cater to the growing patient population, were hired on a full-time basis. This includes an orthopaedic and trauma consultant, an anaesthetist and a physician.
The first joint replacement surgery was performed in 2019 at the Hospital and we have since performed several total knee replacements and total hip replacements.
