Governors Anne Waiguru and Charity Ngilu have dismissed critics of the devolved health function, saying the sick are better served by counties governments.
The two spoke on Saturday during a tour of Lady Grig Maternity Hospital accompanied by Governor Hassan Joho.
The Kirinyaga and Kitui governors commended Joho for upgrading the facility.
They said more money should be sent to counties for health instead of being channelled to the Health ministry.
"Health services are better in devolved units because they are closer to the grassroots people," Waiguru said.
Ngilu said the push to have the health function taken back to the national government is misplaced.
