Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday said the private sector should also lay stress on research in medical sciences apart from providing healthcare facilities to people. He made this remark while attending the inauguration of SUM Ultimate Medicare, a privately-built multi-superspeciality hospital in Bhubaneswar.
“Opening medical colleges may not help to totally develop the healthcare sector. The private sector should also stress on research in medical sciences.” The home minister said.
He hoped that more and more such private healthcare facilities would come up in the state along with public sector initiatives. Odisha Chief Minister congratulated the authorities of Sikshya O Anusandhan Charitable Trust for creating a quality healthcare facility.
Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan also congratulated the chief of the trust, Manoj Nakay. He requested the chief minister to implement the Ayushman Bharat health scheme in the state so that people could avail the healthcare in such a facility.
Spread across ten acres of land, the nine-story hospital will offer next-generation treatment in patient-focused and technology-enhanced settings to the people of the region under one roof, according to a statement.
