The Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret town will get two Cuban doctors who will help in supporting the health system.

Uasin Gishu Governor, Jackson Mandago has revealed this saying the move will help improve the hospital’s healthcare system.

The two Cuban doctors are among the 100 Cuban specialists who are in Kenya as part of the bilateral agreement between the two countries.

The ministry of health said that the objective of bringing these specialists was to enable Kenyans to benefit from Cuban’s robust primary and curative healthcare system that was affordable.

He said that the County Government had facilitated the setting up the five ICU beds at the cost of Sh.50 million bringing to 20 the ICU beds in the Hospital.

The County boss further revealed that his administration will build Mortuaries in both Ziwa and Kesses District hospitals, so as to assist in decongesting MTRH funeral home.

He hailed the MTRH for its efficient service delivery to the residents of the North Rift and the neighbors in East and Central Africa.

The hospital chief executive Dr. Wilson Aruasa hailed the support from the county government saying the hospital had made significant developments as a result of their continued assistance.
