Pocket-friendly quality healthcare by RIMS

RANCHI: The Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (Rims) is planning to commission a state-of-the-art ward for its patients. The 100-bed facility will provide quality healthcare at reasonable rates.

The plan for the five-storey facility, which is likely to draw investment worth Rs 16 crore, has already been sent to the state government's engineering cell.

"A 100-bed ward will be set up on the premises of the institute but information related to its construction cannot be shared at this point of time," said Rims director Tulsi Mahto but did not give further details.

Healthcare at the new facility won't burn hole in consumers' pockets. However, acute shortage of doctors and attendants at Rims continues to be a cause for worry. However, the authority is hopeful of solving the problem soon.

"All vacancies will be filled in the coming financial year and we will have sufficient staff by the time the ward gets ready," said S C Bhagat, the public relations officer at the Rims.

The clearance of the proposal comes after a month of the inauguration of a dental college and a nursing school on the 197-acre campus. Plans to construct a trauma centre and an emergency block with 50 beds are also in the pipeline. The present trauma centre and crisis is highly congested and requires renovation.

The long-standing demand of the paramedical students seems to have ended finally as the proposal for a dedicated faculty building worth Rs 6.47 crore has also been cleared. A multi-storey parking facility worth Rs 11.3 crore and a morgue will also be constructed on the premises of the institute. source-timesofindia.indiatimes.com
