Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital CEO Dr. Wilson Aruasa has affirmed the facility’s partnership with the County on referral cases, noting Uasin Gishu County hospitals’ role in decongesting the Country’s Second largest referral facility.
Making a presentation before the Parliamentary committee on health, Aruasa noted that County facilities have been well equipped thus reducing the number of people visiting the referral hospital for medical services such as surgical, maternity, X-rays among other specialized services.
With regards to the new Referral Hospital, Dr. Aruasa noted that MTRH is on discussion with the County on Human Resource functions which will eventually see MTRH handing over the current facility as they shift to the new 2,000-bed facility that is set to begin construction soon.
While responding to the Committee, Health CEC Everlyn Rotich raised issues on medical Consultation, saying that Counties ought to create a network which will see a rotation of these consultants across various Counties, a point that was supported by the committee.
Rotich further noted that the County is compliant on remitting its payment to the Medical Supplies Agency, KEMSA but raised issues on the baby steps in supplying Medicine to the County.
The Committee led by Sabina Chege has applauded the great teamwork and relationship between the County Government and MTRH.
The Committee then took a tour around MTRH.
