Joy As LHS Karumaindo, Nguu Facilities Open Doors


Nguu residents in Salama ward have expressed their gratitude after H.E. Governor Ndiritu Muriithi formally opened LHS Nguu dispensary for use to the public. The event took place on June 3rd, 2022.


Before the LHS outlet at Nguu began operating, local residents needed to travel as far as Pesi, and Mutara to access medical care.


The need for this facility was made evident by the fact that more than 140 patients had been served by the facility in the 10 days leading up to the opening ceremony.


The Governor also led the opening of LHS Karumaindo, in the Githiga ward. Both LHS Nguu and Karumaindo will be offering services ranging from vaccinations, prenatal and neonatal clinics, medicine dispensing, and general consultations, to a community that previously had to travel several kilometers in search of the same.


In line with the integration of health care facilities into one service, patients using both LHS' Karumaindo and Nguu will also have access to ambulance services, specialized Medical Outpatient Clinics, and sample referrals, as the facility is part of a cluster of facilities centered around the nearby LHS for referral.


The operationalizing of the facility was the main event of a public engagement between county government officials, and local residents about a variety of local development issues, ranging from healthcare, and local security, to delivery of water services and local roads.


LHS Nguu and LHS Karumaindo become the 88th and 89th facilities to be added to the Laikipia Health Service.
