New Delhi, Aug 23 (UNI) Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today said her government has been striving hard to make available best possible advanced healthcare to people by commissioning hospitals at reasonable distance.
Speaking after laying the foundation stone of the 200-bedded Deep Chand Bandhu Hospital at Kokiwala Bagh, Ashok Vihar, Ms Dikshit said well-developed dispensaries were also being commissioned to ensure that people may not rush to big hospitals for ordinary diseases. The dispensaries were also being provided diagonistic facilities.
Speaking at the function, where Delhi Health Minister Yoganand Shastri, MLA Mange Ram Garg and other eminent personalities were present, Ms Dikshit said the hospital would be dedicated to late Deep Chand Bandhu, who represented Wazirpur constituency in the Legislative Assembly.
Ms Dikshit said the Deep Chand Bandhu Hospital once commissioned would provide healthcare to a large section of Delhi's citizens including the poorer sections, expecting mothers and senior citizens.
It would be developed as a multi-disciplinary hospital complete with various medical, nursing, para-medical and other ancilliary services.
It would provide secondary level healthcare services to a population of about 5 lakh people putting up mostly in JJ/slum/under-developed localities around Ashok Vihar and GT Road.
Speaking on this occasion, Health Minister Dr Shastri called upon medical and para-medical personnel to provide healthcare to all and treat their assignment as part of a noble mission.
