Homa Bay county residents can now breathe a sigh of relief after a Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan machine and an Out Patient center were launched at the County Teaching and Referral Hospital on Wednesday.
The CT scan machine worth Ksh.40 million will reduce the high-cost medical services as the residents have been traveling to the neighboring counties for the service.
Speaking during the launch of the two projects Governor Gladys Wanga said that the CT scan equipment will improve the speed and accuracy of diagnosis, ensuring the best possible care for patients.
Wanga said it was a major milestone for her administration to achieve within the first 100 days in office as she promised the residents during the campaigns.
The Governor said that her government has a plan of constructing a multi-storey building for the accident and emergency center before the end of the year.
She added that the newly built units are just the beginning of the big steps of development as far as the health sector is concerned.
The county boss urged the residents to access CT scan services without fear of bills further asking them to register for the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) card which will fully cover the expenses.
