Soldiers, their families and dependants from Eldoret Region and the wider Western Region will from June 2022 benefit from a Level IV proposed Eldoret Regional Hospital (ERH).
The ground breaking ceremony for the ERH was presided over by the Chief of the Defence Forces (CDF), General Robert Kibochi, on Friday, 29 October 2021.
The CDF informed soldiers and their families gathered at Moi Barracks Eldoret that building the 150-bed capacity hospital is inspired by the desire of the KDF Command to bring closer high quality specialised medical care to the service personnel and their families.
” I understand you have been incurring huge cost and travelling far to the Defence Forces Memorial Hospital in Nairobi and to other private hospitals to seek specialised medical care. You need not to worry now that you will be getting the same services here in Moi Barracks, once construction is completed, ” said the CDF.
Present during the ceremony were Service Commanders, General Officers, Senior Officers Officers, Soldiers and their families.
