New Delhi: MAMC faculty arms up against Delhi government

New Delhi: MAMC faculty arms up against Delhi government

New Delhi: It’s a warzone at one of the country’s most prestigious medical colleges, Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC), after the faculty Association at the college and its associated hospitals, has threatened an En- Masse Repatriation to CHS facilities, on account of the growing interference of the Delhi government in the organisations’ functioning.

The doctor are in a revolting mood after recent decision of the Delhi Health minister to takeover the Medical Superintendent’s office complex at the institution .

In a letter written to the Lt Governor yesterday, the faculty Association of MAMC and associated hospitals (LNJP hospital, GB Pant Hospital, GNEC ) have pointed out towards the growing interference of the Health Department in the day to day working of medical professionals at MAMC and its related group of institutions. This, the doctors allege has caused them extreme humiliation and is affecting the delivery of the quality healthcare to the patients. The letter stated

The final insult comes in the form of the Health minister’s decision to illegally and forcible occupy for himself and his representatives, the heritage Medical Superintendent’s Office complex by displacing the institutional head, thereby attempting to decapitate an 80+ year old glorious institution.

This is not only an unprecedented act but also lays to waste the plans of bettering patient care to trauma patients, by displacing the administrative offices of Lok Nayak Hosptial to the grounds and first floors of the designated trauma block with blatant disregard for the care of the injured patients.

Demanding the LG’s office to intervene in the matter, the doctors have threatened stating that if such behavior continues, the doctors would be forced to resort to En- Masse Repatriation to CHS facilities.

    This is how all centres of excellence are being destroyed systematically. It is our prestine duty of all alumini of Mamc to join hands to thwart any attempt to under mine the working of the institution.

    Another shocking news that Orthopaedic Block will be an administrative office of the Lok Nayak Hospital. The orthopaedic Block stands to day on the plot of REEMA Block,belonging to the department of Orthopaedics since the inception of the IRWIN HOSPITAL. The block was vacated by us in 1982 as the building was unsafe.i was involved in planning of the 6 floors building since 1979. The maps and design of the building was done by me under the supervision of Prof. G.C.Das, Prof. J.S. makhani, Prof S.S.yadav and subsequently took charge of the plan in 1994,all addition modification done by me with the help of the superintendent and executive Engineers of the PWD. the building was exclusively for the department of
    Orthopaedics,with independent Operation rooms,Wards, Out patients and Occupational physiothery department. it was supposed to be the Nucleus for the Trauma Centers ,planned all around Delhi on the line of Sushrut Trauma Center the only Trauma center of Delhi. The same also came up during my tenure. Mrs. Adarsh Misra the Principal secretary of Delhi had given
    noting on the file of the REEMA BLOCK (orthopaedics Block) that the building will be developed for exclusively for the Department of Orthpaedics.
    the building should not be converted in an administrative block. 38 crore of the public money will go down to the drain. i strongly suggest the faculty of the orthopaedics should not allow to convert the original status of the building.

  4. As an alumni (74 MBBS) and practicing in the USA it is disheartening to find out about the current situation.Hopefully the higher powers will see the light.
