Make Biju Memorial Hospital Supper-Specialty

Biju Patnaik Smruti Sansad president and noted trade union leader Santosh Kumar Pattnaik has sent a request letter to the Chief Minister for making the Biju Memorial Hospital here a supper-speciality hospital. Pattnaik has stated that the Biju Memorial Hospital is the first and only Government hospital at the Paradip Industrial Estate. It is the only hospital named after Bijubabu. Paradip is one of the State’s mega industrial hubs including PPT, PPL, IFFCO, Essar Steel, Paradip Refinery and many small and medium industries like marine food product plants. He further pointed out that over one lakh people from Jagatsinghpur and Kendrapada districts depend on the Biju Memorial Hospital. The Chief Minister is granting supper-speciality status to all districts’ main hospitals, but the Jagatsinghpur District Headquarters Hospital is not added in the list. So, the Jagatsinghpur DHH and the Biju Memorial hospital should be made supper-speciality hospitals. – Daily Pioneer
