“We are making these investments in recognition of the fact that our people need to be able to find health solutions within the county” the governor said.
The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to offer comprehensive post-anaesthesia management services and is part of the county’s efforts to attain quality healthcare.

The governor also opened a Doctors' Lounge at the County Referral Facility which is connected with WiFi to enable doctors work from the facility. It was part of the Doctors Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) that the county has fulfilled.
