Under the leadership of Governor Susan Kihika and the proactive approach of the Department of Health, residents of Bahati Sub-County can look forward to the imminent full operationalization of these health facilities. The dedication and hands-on approach demonstrated by the county leadership instill confidence among residents that their health needs will be met effectively and efficiently.

The operationalization of these health facilities will bring a multitude of benefits to the people of Nakuru County. Firstly, improved access to healthcare services will lead to better health outcomes for residents, reducing the burden of preventable illnesses and diseases. Additionally, the upgraded infrastructure and equipment will enhance the quality of care provided, ensuring that patients receive timely and comprehensive medical attention.
