The initiative was taken up in a private public partnership model with an aim to provide state-of-the-art ICU medical equipment, ICU management software platform. The main objective is to address the issues of shortage of specialists in remote places, the CM informed.

Addressing the function as chief guest, Biren said that considering health is everything, the state government usually gives priority in providing a good health care system. The state government has started conveying to DoNER ministry about the need of constructing a new hospital of AIIMS standard instead of upgrading the previous hospital like JNIMS, RIMS to AIIMS standard.  The present government would surely construct the said hospital as executing the commitment made in the recently concluded election.

Biren further said that the state government has already received a sanction of around Rs 24 crore for the construction of a maternity cum paediatric hospital in the state. The construction would be taken up soon after discussing with other officials after ascertaining whether to be constructed separately or to improve the already established hospital.

While appealing to people of the state to do their service with dedication, he said that the present government is really concerned in bringing big change in next five years, uprooting corruption, drug menace and to promote equality in both the hill and valley. To achieve this goal, cooperation and support from every section of society is highly needed. All the employees working in any department should perform their service with dedication, commitment and sense of professionalism.
