 Coastweek-- His Honour, the Minister of Health Kwale County, Dr. Athuman Chiguzo, officially received the keys of the newly constructed Palliative Care Clinic facility at Msambweni County Referral Hospital on Friday 16th September 2016 at 16.00 at the hospital.

This two roomed unit is the brain child of the members of the South Coast Branch of the East Africa Women’s League, spear-headed by their chairman Mrs. Pauline McKenzie, to meet the established need for community outreach for terminally ill patients. With sponsorship from the Commercial Bank of Africa, today this unit is a reality.

Utilising existing space within the hospital’s Outpatients Department, the facility provides a peaceful, private consultation room and an examination room, where patients can receive advice, guidance and treatment from the professional team of hospital staff who will man this much needed service, especially for the home care of patients, through the outreach programme.

The existing, largely unused waiting area was renovated to meet the hospital requirements – erecting floor to ceiling panels, lockable doors, ceiling fans, plumbing to two stainless steel sinks, lighting and sockets, replacing existing window frames with hard wood and frosted glass and the entire structure was painted throughout. 

 

 
  Coastweek-- The new unit keys, being handed over to the Minister of Health Kwale County Dr. Athuman Chiguzo by Mrs. Anne Vaughan.

This Palliative Care facility will greatly assist the hospital medical specialists as a referral unit for patients.

It will also provide a quality working facility for staff coping with the stress and demands of treating terminally ill patients and their caregivers.

It is the only Palliative Care Centre in the Kwale County.

The objective of the East Africa Woman’s League is to “promote the physical, moral and mental welfare and happiness of all women and children”.

South Coast Branch members appreciate this cooperation with the Kwale Ministry of Health in developing, through networking and partnership, this new health outreach service.
