Mpeketoni has always been the social and economic epicenter of Lamu West.
Enter devolution, its strategic importance was amplified, such that an important institution like Mpeketoni Sub-County Hospital was elevated to its current status from a Health Center.
But it takes appropriate infrastructure to enable it operate as a proper Hospital, which in reality is a cautious capital-intensive journey.
However, it is a journey worth taking…
The ongoing works of the Outpatient Department (OPD) block at Mpeketoni Sub-County Hospital is an earnest journey in that route. Once complete by December 2020, it will house Outpatient Units and the Administration offices.
That way, different specialist clinics that previously shared space will now have their own dedicated clinics with adequate space for better service provision. No more of the Nutrionist Clinic or Dental Clinic sharing the same room with the Comprehensive Care Clinic.
Fundamentally, this allows the hospital to operate fully as a hospital, not a Health Center.
