Doctors at Ndanai Sub-County Hospital, Sotik performed a successful Caesarian Section operation on Wednesday 22nd May, 2019 after the hospital got a fully equipped theater and additional medical staff.

“This is a major stride in efforts to improve access to healthcare in Bomet County as envisioned in H.E Dr Joyce Laboso’s manifesto. Similar services are expected to be done in Kapkoros, Sigor, Irwaga and Tegat sub county hospitals. This will also mean Longisa County Referal Hospital will be decongested in terms of patients requiring surgical services” Health CEC Dr Joseph Sitonik said.

This is the second successful surgical birth in a sub county hospital after one done in Cheptalal sub county hospital on 11th July, 2018 by a medical team done by Dr Robert Lang’at

The proud parents of bouncing baby Blessings Moraa expressed their joy and thanked Dr Joyce Laboso’s government for the stride it has made in improving access to maternal healthcare.

Dr Eric Kibet who led the medical team said that the newly equipped theatre and the additional medical staff that the county government of Bomet has provided will reduce maternal deaths and cut the costs of seeking the services in distant Hospitals.
