Boost for critical care

Boost for critical care: Critical care in Western Kenya has got a filip with a state-of-the-art ICU unit at Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital (JOOTRH) in Kisumu. The 7-bedded ICU unit with all top-of-the-range monitoring facilities was formally launched in September. It is the most well-equipped and biggest critical care unit outside of Kenyatta National Hospital in terms of size, capacity, and equipment. The unit has the capacity to admit dialysis patients, neonates and children. The CPHD team, in collaboration with GE Foundation and Assist International, installed the new units and imparted related training with the help of the hospital administration.
