In the future, no patient will need to go out of the state for treatment: CM Bhupesh Baghel

The capabilities of the private sector will also be used to boost the government’s plans in this connection, as per a statement issued from CMO Chhattisgarh Bhupesh Baghel.

Bhupesh Baghel, the chief minister of Chhattisgarh, on Wednesday stated that the state government is in the process of developing health facilities of international standard.

The capabilities of the private sector will also be used to boost the government’s plans in this connection, as per a statement issued from CMO Chhattisgarh Bhupesh Baghel.

The state government, which is trying to strengthen the health infrastructure of Chhattisgarh from villages to the capital Raipur, also wants to make maximum use of the capacity of the private sector.

Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has directed to reserve 25 acres of land in Nava Raipur. It will be used to set up a reputed private hospital with international facilities, where treatment will be done under state schemes.

“All government hospitals from the block to the district level are already being made well-equipped,” the CMO Office said.

“In future, no patient will need to go out of the state. There will be facilities for the treatment of all types of serious diseases including multi-organ transplant. One thousand to 1500 beds will be made of multi-super-specialty hospital,” the CMO Office said, adding, “Patients from neighboring states will also benefit.”

Mr. Bhupesh Baghel has already sought an action plan from all the collectors to make the government hospitals from the development block to the district level well-equipped.

After the second wave of Coronavirus, Chief Minister Mr. Baghel has kept the work of strengthening health infrastructure in his top priority.

Recently, during the inauguration of development works and Bhoomi Pujan programs in the districts, he also inaugurated new facilities in many government hospitals.

According to Mr. Baghel, “It was at the time of the second wave that the government had resolved to further strengthen the health infrastructure.”

With the establishment of a private hospital of international standard in Nava Raipur, the state as well as the neighboring states will get its benefit.

Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has asked the Chief Secretary of the State to prepare and submit its action plan within 15 days from the Health Department.

He said that super-specialty facilities are available for the treatment of all kinds of diseases in many government and private sector hospitals in the state, but even after this, on many occasions such situations arise due to which patients have to be taken to metro cities through ambulance or by other means.

Mr. Baghel said that this process is not only very expensive and painful, but at the same time, there are chances of death of serious patients. “Therefore, it is necessary that such a hospital of national repute in the private sector should be established in the state, so that the treatment of all types of serious diseases can be made available in the state itself,” he expressed.

CM Baghel has asked the Chief Secretary to make a provision in this hospital, especially with the facility of multi-organ transplant, as well as various types of multi-super specialty facilities.

“The hospital should have a capacity of one thousand to 1500 beds. It should provide treatment under Khubchand Baghel scheme or Ayushman Bharat scheme,” the CM directed.

He said that there should be a provision in this that a reputed medical institution, which demands the minimum amount of annual expenditure on establishment and maintenance of the hospital from the government, would be selected for the construction of the hospital.
