Improving Healthcare in the County

In our endeavor to improve healthcare in Tharaka Nithi, the County Government is building a pediatric and amenity wards and later a male ward at Chuka referral hospital to ease congestion.

An ambulance fitted with life support machines has been sourced for the facility, and two more for Marimanti and Magutuni hospitals will be acquired and will be manned by paramedics.

Existing ambulances will be upgraded and attached to health centers across the county.

The county government has also bought vehicles to deliver drugs to health centers and hospitals to curb detouring of drugs and seal loopholes where we have been losing medicine.
