Kenyatta National Hospital.
The Kenyatta National hospital –KNH through its Chief executive officer Richard Leresian Lesiyampe is set to engage with officials of the coming devolved system of governance with an aim of opening centers in them.
Lesiyampe disclosed that, this will help them to diversify its services which are of need to most Kenyans.
The hospital which is mandated to treat special cases reveals that they have been dealing with primary treatment though they intend to specialize and be more efficient.
“We need to have a specialized hospital that will deal with only children, the idea of children being treated with adults is not okay and there is really a need for a public hospital that will deal with special cases of children to be built in the country,” Lesiyampe added.
Speaking in Nairobi, he cautioned motorists to be careful while driving saying that off late they have been receiving 10 victims of road accidents and the figure has been escalating especially on weekends and end month.
Lesiyampe said that there is need for public transport motorists to be checked for any eye implications sighting that all measures including Alco blow should be used to avoid the high rate of road accidents in the country.
He also revealed that the hospital has been running on a Sh 1 billion deficit yearly due to most of their patients incapability to raise money for their treatment with others absconding payments. The hospital revealed that 70% of their patients are unemployed thus calling upon stakeholders and the government to increase their funding.
