Google in partnership with Emergency Medicine Kenya Foundation (EMKF), Ministry of Health and BP Systems Online, have mapped public hospitals with emergency medical care services across the country on Search and Maps enabling Kenyans to navigate online with ease by searching “emergency centre near me” and find their closest hospital as part of Project 47: Emergency Departments in 47 Counties . Additionally, patients can now easily find opening times, contact numbers and the emergency services offered in the public hospitals online.
