Mbagathi Hospital Media Tour

Nairobi 29th March 2023

Governor Sakaja Johnson’s vision to ensure Mbagathi hospital becomes among one of the Nairobi City County’s health facilities of choice in the provision of Emergency services and offering of broad spectrum health care provision is slowly being realized with the institution set to grow in leaps and bounds as the facility is set to launch a second ICU unit in the county after Governor Sakaja’s launch of a similar facility in Mama Lucy Kibaki hospital several weeks ago.
Mbagathi1Speaking after hosting several media houses who toured the facility today; County Executive for Health, Wellness and Nutrition, Dr. Nyalita  “Mbagathi Hospital was built in the 1950s and was known as the Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH) and served as the infectious diseases isolation facility for the King George VI Hospital, now Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH). It wasn’t until 1995 that the hospital acquired autonomy from KNH to become a fully-fledged district hospital for Nairobi City. Under Governor Sakaja’s leadership this facility is set to become one of the leading hospitals in Nairobi. As we speak, we have a state of the art 112 mortuary as well as an internationally accredited laboratory. We also offer general and specialized healthcare services that include outpatient and inpatient services, dental clinic, radiology, renal clinic, eye unit, maternity, nutrition, pediatrics general clinic, and physiotherapy services.”
Mbagathi2Currently, Mbagathi Hospital offers services to about 1,200 outpatients on a daily basis and a bed capacity of 320 beds.

Said Dr. Nyalita, “The hospital was able to set up a 160- bed capacity isolation centre as part of the country’s COVID-19 response strategy. Which is now being used as a cholera isolation centre. I want to thank Governor Sakaja for his continued support and for ensuring that we are allocated a budget to ensure we bring onboard another 200 health workers who will be onboarded to serve in various units of this facility. Our priority right now is to offer efficient services to area residents and keep the governors’ manifesto alive.”
