New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled today the state of art, super-speciality public hospital – Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Medical Sciences and Research in Ahmedabad today.

PM inspected the facilities at the hospital. He lauded the efforts of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation for setting up a world class hospital and said, “Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Medical Sciences and Research in Ahmedabad hospital will prove to be a model for other government hospitals in the country.”

Built at a cost of Rs. 750 crore, the 17-floor hospital would provide world-class services at an affordable price and is linked with Ayushman Bharat. Addressing a gathering on this occasion, Mr Modi emphasized the importance of Ayushman Bharat saying, “It is because of Ayushaman Bharat there is an increasing need for new hospitals in even smaller towns. New hospitals are opening faster, the demand for doctors and paramedic staff is increasing, thereby creating many employment opportunities are coming up for the youth in the healthcare sector”.

Prime Minister said the country has seen a major expansion in healthcare facilities and medical education over the past four years which will be of great help in meeting the health care needs of the citizens.

The concern for the poor and the need to address them came to the fore as PM said,” The Government stands with the poor and its priority for them is reflected in the expansion of health care services and provision of generic drugs at low prices under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Yojana. Around 5000 Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Kendras have been set up across the country.”

The Prime Minister said that his Government is committed towards the equality of opportunity for all and 10% reservation for general category poor is a step in this direction. For this purpose, the number of seats in educational institutions is being increased by 10%. He lauded Gujarat Government for being the first state to implement the decision to provide a 10% reservation for the general category poor in government jobs and educational institutions.

In a lighter vein, the Prime Minister said, it is his first visit to Gujarat in the New Year, at a time when festival season is around and what better time would it have been to dedicate a big health care facility for the people of Ahmedabad. He added that very few municipal corporations in the country have come forward with such a world-class healthcare facility. PM lauded Sardar Patel’s role as a Mayor of Ahmedabad who led by example with his drive for health, hygiene and cleanliness in the city.

The Prime Minister summed up his address at the event with his remarks that in keeping up with its commitment towards equal opportunity for all and for the development – Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas is the way forward for New India.

    I hope with availablity of such world class infrastructure in India , top political leaders will stop rushing to USA for their medical care.

  3. All government hospital should be of equal standard. When one government hospital does not have even basic stuff such as gloves, IV fluids , IV lines etc then why 750 crores are being wasted in the name of digitalisation in health sector. Who will be actually using the facilities of this hospital?? Only government, top bureaucrat ?? At district level doctors feel so helpless because of lack of resources. At some places money is being wasted just for show off..

    I THINK YOU\’RE RIGHTLY POINTED OUT , ITS MORE THE COMFORT AND CONVENIENCES OF THE CUNNING , CORRUPT BABUS THE BUEROCRATES AND THEIR BOSSES. IN A COUNTRY WHERE HARDLY 15% OF IT\’S POOR,UNDERPRIVILEGED, MOST DESERVING POPULATION DOESN\’T HAVE ACCESS TO PRIMARY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM, WHAT IS THE USE OF WASTING CRORES AND CRORES OF RUPEES ON THESE WHITE ELEPHANTS . I AM MORE THAN 70% OF THE HEALTH BUDGET IS WAESTED ON SUCH HOSPITALS , WHICH MAY BE BENIFIAL MOSTLY FOR GUYS SITTING IN STATE CAPITAL. COME ON START DOING SOME THING GOOD FOR NEEDY ,NOT FOR THE GREEDIES…….. PRIMARY CONCERN SHOULD BE FOR THE PRIMARY HEALTH CARE SYSTEM TO PREVNT DISEASES & PROMOTE GOOD HEALTH. I THINK THESE MASSIVE STRECTURES ARE THE MAIN SOURCE FOR MAKING MASSIVE MONEY ( BY UNLAWFUL EARNINGS). I have been noticing over the years .

    All the GOVERNMENT HOSPITALS ACROSS COUNTRY , IF NOT ALL AT LEAST 50% OF THEM SHOULD BE ABLE TO TREAT AYUSHMANN BHARAT INSURANCED PATIENTS . OTHERWISE THE GREEDY PRIVATE CORPORATE HOSPITALS WILL SYPHON AWAY ALL THE INSURANCE MONEY , WITH UNWANTED AND UNNECESSARY INVESTIGATIONS AND TREATMENTS. COMING TO DIGITAILSATION OR PAPER FREE / LESS DOCUMENTATION IT SHOULD BE FOLLOWED ALLOVER THE COUNTRY SIMULTANEOUSLY , SO THAT ONE CAN MONITOR THE EVENTS AT THE CLICK OF BOTTOM , SITTING ANY PART OF COUNTRY . IT NOT ONLY PREVENTS TO TAMPERS THE RECORDS , ALSO REVEALS WHO IS WHO , AND WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITES S/ HE IS INVOLVED AND THEIR PLACE, PRESENCE , TIME ETC. THIS WAY WE CHECK THE THE ESCAPE ROOTS OF THE EMPLOYEES , SPECIALLY THOSE WHO RUNAWAY TO THEIR OWN PRIVATE PRATICE , AS MENTIONED IN SEVERAL ARTICLES.
