50-bed Sehore hosp to be upgraded to 100 beds: CM

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that the 50 bedded hospital in Sehore district of Nasrullaganj will be upgraded to 100 bed capacity hospital. Necessary health facilities will be developed in small towns and cities of the state like in big cities.

Chouhan was e-dedicating the oxygen plant at Nasrullaganj Civil Hospital set up at a cost of Rs 1.40 crore and a pathology lab built at a cost of Rs 80 lakh. Chouhan also performed the bhoomi-pujan for the 10-bed ICU and maternity wing in the Civil Hospital on the occasion. The cost of the dedicated works is Rs 2.20 crore and the cost of works of bhoomi-pujan is Rs 12.13 crore. In this way, the people of Nasrullaganj have received the gift of works worth 14.33 crores. Health Minister Prabhuram Choudhary and MP Ramakant Bhargav also virtually participated in the programme.

Chouhan said that the first joy is to have a healthy body. Every person should try not to become unwell. Even if one becomes unwell, timely treatment should be available. The Madhya Pradesh government made every effort to arrange oxygen in the second wave of Corona. Temporary hospitals were opened where there was inadequate arrangement of treatment. Patients were provided facilities including treatment. The oxygen plant in Nasrullaganj with a 300 litre capacity, will facilitate local patients as they will not be compelled to go to Hoshangabad and Bhopal. Earlier they would have to go out even for minor check-ups. Now with a lab, this work can also be done in Nasrullaganj itself.

The Chief Minister said that the people of the surrounding area would also get the benefits of the facilities developed in the Civil Hospital. Along with the delivery facility, there will also be availability of essential facilities in case of operation. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan informed that Budhni has come under the 100 percent vaccination status. Similar work should be done in Nasrullaganj. This will help in eliminating the possibility of a new wave of Corona. Chouhan also requested the general public to follow the rules of prevention from Corona.

Health Minister Prabhuram Choudhary said that the Corona control model of Madhya Pradesh has been appreciated all over the country. At the time of second wave, Chouhan proved his leadership ability by getting liquid oxygen from other parts of the country. Today, Madhya Pradesh has moved from zero plant status to 179 oxygen plants in the beginning of 2020.
