dc.description.abstract The research paper evaluated the existing facilities maintenance management practices and processes in major hospitals in Kenya. The facility managers from major hospitals were interviewed on medical equipment management. The data collected from the facility managers determined their effectiveness as they managed the life cycle of the medical equipment. The results offered management the opportunity to appraise the overall maintenance program and sought improvement for increased efficiency and more effective utilization of available resources. The challenges encountered in this research included hospital's policy and technological resources. The facility maintenance management in the public hospitals was not effective as they were ranked forty percent on their performance. The maintenance computer program was developed to improve the existing facilities maintenance management for hospitals in Kenya. The program guides the user on the causes of the fault, possible personnel to handle the fault and establishment of inventory system of medical equipment. en_US
