Speaking on Wednesday,Kingi said the twin opening up of a 64-bed paediatric ward and 45-bed maternity ward, with fully equipped theatres at the Mariakani Sub-County Hospital will bring to fruition, determination to take healthcare closer to Wananchi.

“Further, we have assigned a general surgeon, an orthopedic and spinal surgeon, a paediatrician, a physician and two Obstetric/ gynaecologists, who will offer specialised treatment at the facility” he said

The governor added that they are also upgrading Mariakani Hospital into an internship centre, which will see more personnel assigned to the facility that will fully serve the over 50,000 reisdents within its catchment area, thereby decongesting the Kilifi County Referral Hospital and the Malindi Sub-County Hospital.
