Mombasa County Government

The state-of-the-art facility, developed in partnership between the national government and Mombasa County Government as part of the Universal Health Coverage (UHC) pillar of the Big 4 Agenda, features state-of-the-art equipment to offer comprehensive cancer care .

Kenyatta University Teaching

The center which will serve cancer patients in the region and beyond becomes the second public facility of its kind in Kenya after the Kenyatta University Teaching, Referral and Research Hospital.

President Kenyatta

Speaking after launching the cancer center, President Kenyatta praised the partnership between the national government and county governments in providing health services to Kenyans.

Citing the example of the cancer center, the president emphasized that without cooperation between the two levels of government, no significant development would be achieved.

“This hospital is now in a position to provide services because we sat down with the governor who offered us the land so that we, as the national government, could set up the infrastructure and install modern equipment.

President Kenyatta

“We are doing all of this to ensure that the Wananchi have unrestricted access to quality health services. We are doing these things not only in Mombasa but throughout the country,” said President Kenyatta.

Head of State

The Head of State reiterated his call for all Kenyans to register with the National Health Insurance Fund to facilitate their access to treatment.

President Kenyatta

President Kenyatta added that he is advocating for continuity in leadership so that Kenyans continue to enjoy the services his government has started, including UHC and improved infrastructure, among others.

Mutahi Kagwe

Health CS Mutahi Kagwe said the launch of the specialist cancer center is part of the president’s updating of UHC’s vision of ensuring Kenyans have access to excellent health standards at affordable costs.

“We thank them because it is very easy to take things for granted, it is easy to assume that any other leadership would have brought similar developments. But without good leadership there would be no development,” said CS Kagwe.

Kisumu and Nyeri

CS Kagwe noted that a similar cancer center will open in Nakuru next month, followed by Garissa, Kisumu and Nyeri counties.

Mombasa Governor

Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho praised the cooperation between the national and county governments, saying he had fostered the vision of establishing a cancer center for a long time, but was only able to realize it when President Kenyatta’s leadership began work on close collaboration with the opposition.

President Kenyatta

“Whoever criticizes our cooperation with you (President Kenyatta) does not have the interests of Kenyans in mind. Much of the progress we have made in my second term has been the result of our joint work with the national government,” Governor Joho said.

The Governor added that for the first time in Mombasa’s history, a large number of patients from private hospitals are seeking treatment at the public hospital.

Your Excellency

“Your Excellency, I want to confirm that we are overwhelmed by the referrals that come to us from private hospitals. Your Excellency, I also want to confirm that we are overwhelmed by the type of support we are receiving from private sector professionals, consultants and physicians who want to practice here,” the Governor said.

President Kenyatta

President Kenyatta commended the county government’s leadership in prioritizing people’s health and championing medical tourism, saying this will help expand the county’s revenue base.
