The authorities of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) are trying their best to start the super-specialty wing by April in accordance with the orders given by the central government.
The Union joint secretary had issued a directive after a review of the super-specialty wing some days ago asking it to start the delivery of health services in this wing by April.
The various units to be started in the super-specialty wing of RIMS include cardiology, urology, oncology and paediatric.
Medical superintendent SK Chaudhary, however, said, "Until the building is prepared and handed over to us, we can't start anything. Once the building, which is 95% complete, is handed over to us, it will be first be tested after which we'll start rolling out the later processes. With the work on the building being more than half-way through, we hope to start the work at the earliest so that common people can start availing of better health facilities here."
The recruitment of paramedic staff and doctors will start once the testing of the building is done, added Chaudhary.
"We have decided to start the super-specialty in a phased manner. Since we do not want to miss the April deadline, we will start operating with the existing staff including doctors. Later, of course, we will recruit more qualified doctors," assured the superintendent. source-articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com
