The construction of a comprehensive cancer treatment centre in Mombasa to cater for the large Coast region is nearly complete.
The ultra-modern facility project which is within the Coast General Teaching and Referral Hospital compound is set to offer radiotherapy treatment.
The new centre is a joint project of the national government and the Mombasa County.
Speaking on Saturday, July 11, Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho said the center is the first of its kind in the region.
“Very soon patients in the coastal region requiring radiotherapy will not have to go to Nairobi to seek the treatment,” said Governor Joho.
"The facility will be a major boost to the existing Day Care Chemotherapy Center," observed the governor.
