Stima Sacco Society has handed over the renovatedNaivasha Level five hospital’s female medical ward to the latter’s management. The refurbishment of the ward demonstrates the Sacco’s continued commitment towards elevating the hospital’s efficacy, which began with the renovation of the male ward.
“The Nairobi-Naivasha highway is a busy road,” said Dr. Gamaliel Hassan, the chief executive officer, Stima Sacco adding that occasionally, accidents occur on the road and some of the victims are taken to Naivasha Level five hospital.
Data from the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) indicates that last year ( from January to November), over 3,114 Kenyans perished in road accidents, marking a significant increase in road carnage. Pedestrians were leading with 1,108 deaths followed by motorcyclists and passengers at 884 and 424 deaths respectively.
Dr. Hassan said the renovation of the Naivasha Level Five hospital was a demonstration of the values underpinning Stima Sacco’s mission and the choices made each day by its staff as they engage with society. “We focus our energy on initiatives that support our diverse workforce, enhance and protect our environment, strengthen the communities around us and most importantly, advance consumer health and wellness,” he said.
Speaking about the state of Covid-19 pandemic in Kenya, Dr. Hassan thanked all the physicians and health care professionals for their hard work and commitment during this challenging time.
“Among the heroes who have emerged from this crisis are the health care professionals who have risked their own health to serve their patients. The nation is indebted to you. As we move forward, we know that the pandemic continues to evolve and the health care community must continue to deliver high-quality care to all patients. In this regard, we as a Sacco will continue to give a supporting hand in the areas that we are able,” he said.
The chief executive officer emphasized that Stima Sacco places a high value on being a good corporate citizen. “We understand that our promise is our most vital product and through authentic relationships, we are building better, stronger, more sustainable communities in the places where we do business.”
