FHOK - Family Care Medical Centre Nyeri

Background

FHOK –FCMC Nyeri was started in 1965 and is one of the 14 FHOK medical facilities. It is one kilometer from Nyeri town and is situated next to KEMSA, opposite Nyeri PGH.

It started as a focal point in provision of Information, Education and communication in the area of Family Planning in both Central and Eastern area. Family Planning services were however introduced two years later.

With the introduction of Mobile clinics in 1969, the center employed more healthcare providers who gave quality healthcare services. This led to the centre being a center of excellence in Family Planning services in the given area which again led to the establishment of a Regional VSC Training Center that served Central and Southern Africa.

In addition to the VSC training, the clinic also acted as a training centre for doctors and nurses on the insertion and removal of Norplant.

The clinic used to operate outreach clinics in Karatina, Tetu, Gichugu and Nanyuki among others. It also acted as a reference point by the CBD agents who were trained through the CBD program. The CBD agents are today’s Community Health Workers.

The demand for services has since grown prompting the organization to expand the health services which have so far been integrated.

FHOK- FCMC Nyeri is currently offering fully integrated health services with SRH/FP services being her core interest. It has also a maternity unit.
