Nairobi County government on Wednesday demolished personal clinics, pharmacies and laboratories located in close proximity to Mama Lucy Kibaki Medical center in Umoja Estate.
The demolitions were prompted by problems from hospital superintendent Dr Musa Mohammed who wrote a letter to the county govt before this thirty day period, urging them to withdraw licences of the private facilities around its premises.
Quite a few believe that the private services are owned by medical practitioners doing the job at the hospital.
Dr Mohammed argued that the non-public facilities had been tarnishing the identify of the healthcare facility and disrupting functions.
The county bulldozers introduced down additional than 30 private clinical clinics reverse the healthcare facility.
Mama Lucy Healthcare facility treats far more 1,000 sufferers daily, but the facility has been grappling with problems, which include shortages of prescription drugs and employees.
