More than 30,000 residents of Matasia in Ngong will benefit from a new modern public health center meant to ease the suffering of patients in search of quality medical care.
The facility built at a cost of 50 million shillings has a pediatric wing and an adult ward.
This modern health public facility has taken the county government of Kajiado three years to complete.
Residents of Olkeri, one of the more populous wards say it could not have come at a better time.
For years residents of upper and lower Matasia had to walk long distances to Ngong and Ongata Rongai to seek medical services.
Expectant mothers were hardest hit as some were forced to delivered their babies on the roadside.
Locals say the facility is a dream come true and they are now expecting enhanced services urging the county government to set up a renal unit in the centre.
According to Kajiado Chief Executive for health Esther Samoire the facility that sits on a half an acre piece of land is expected to serve more than 200 patients a day.
The initial land meant for the clinic is said to have been grabbed prompting the county government to hive off land meant for a police station. The paediatric and adult wards have 15 beds each.
