Many Coast patients now flock to the hospital after it was recently refurbished to offer additional services.
Though it is in Mombasa, the hospital also serves Kwale, Kilifi, Tana River, Lamu and Taita Taveta counties.
It now has cancer and dialysis units, open heart and neurosurgeries, among other specialised services. They have attracted many patients.
The maternity section is also crowded, as more women prefer to deliver at the facility.
“Let’s not play with public health. We are here to help one another and assist Kenyans to get quality medical services,” Health CS Sicily Kariuki said.
A CT scan has many uses but is particularly well-suited for quick examination of people who may have internal injuries from car accidents or other types of trauma.
It can be used to visualise nearly all parts of the body and is used to diagnose disease or injury and plan medical, surgical or radiation treatment.
The CS visited the Cancer Centre, the cardiac centre, the radiotherapy construction site, the intensive care unit and the maternity wing. She also commissioned a minimal access theatre for laparoscopy and endoscopy cases. The hospital has 10 theatres.
