“This is a place for peace and recovery ensuring high standards of treatment,” he stated.

Located on a 15 acre piece of land in Nakuru’s pipeline estate, JOMEC provides a safe haven and respite where anyone who has endured trying times as a victim of drugs and alcohol can get help that they need.

JOMEC is a Nursing Home established under the Medical Practitioners and Dentists Act (cap 253) and licensed to operate as a private medical institution.
