For the benefit of thousands of teachers from the area, Minet Kenya has enlisted the aid of six public hospitals in Kericho County.
The included hospitals are the Londiani, Kapkatet, Roret, Soin-Sigowet, and Fort Tenan sub county hospitals as well as the Kericho County Referral Hospital.
Over 8,000 teachers and their dependents will profit from the move, according to Minet Kenya CEO Mr. Sammy Muthui, who was speaking at the opening of the medical facilities on the grounds of the Kericho County Referral Hospital.
“It’s part of the company’s strategy to increase access to and bring medical services closer to
teachers,” he said.
He revealed that in the last few years, Minet expanded the teachers’ medical scheme to five
hundred and seventy medical centres in the country.
“This is an indication of our commitment to empower teachers. We will continue to actively
contribute to the health sector through our initiative of promoting good health and well-being,”
Since inception, Minet medical services have predominantly been offered in private and faith
“We have heeded to teachers’ request for a variety of options, especially specialized treatment.
We are having discussions with other counties to continuously partner with hospitals so that
teachers can receive medical care,” added Muthui.
The governor of Kericho County, Prof. Paul Chepkwony, praised Minet’s achievements and asked for greater public-private collaborations in the healthcare sector.
Over 1.2 million instructors are currently covered by the teachers’ medical system, including 345,000 registered teachers and their families nationwide.
