The Super Specialty Child PGI Hospital has been provided with a state-of-the-art operation theatre, intensive care unit and a dialysis unit to ensure better health care for children in Noida.
The three units were inaugurated on Friday by minister for medical education Ashutosh Tandon. Gautam Budh Nagar MP and Union tourism minister Mahesh Sharma and Noida MLA Pankaj Singh were also present on the occasion.
Eight operations theatres have been made functional. The ICU will have 41 beds.
“The state government has been making a tireless effort to improve health care in Uttar Pradesh. I am optimistic that with the introduction of ICU, OT complex and the dialysis unit, the medical facilities and the quality of services at the Child PGI Hospital will improve,” Tandon said.
The three units were constructed by the Noida Authority over the past three months as per the instructions of the state health department. Recently, the Yogi cabinet approved expansion of the Child PGI Hospital along with other medical institutes of the state.
Singh, son of Union home minister Rajnath Singh, said, “The state government is committed to providing state-of-the-art medical facilities in Uttar Pradesh. This government made several announcements on upgrading health care facilities and dispensing quality medical treatment to residents in its first budget. Funds to the tune of ₹15 crore was also allocated for purchasing equipment for the Child PGI Hospital.”
Dr AK Bhatt, director of Super Specialty Child PGI Hospital, said that these newly added units will surely go a long way in boosting services at the hospital.
“I am certain that after being equipped with these units, patients flocking to our hospital will get better treatment. The parents, too, will not have to turn to Delhi or elsewhere in the city when it comes to specialised medical care of their children,” Bhatt said.
According to hospital authorities, the three facilities were put in place recently under an initiative announced on the occasion of ‘100 days of the Yogi government’.
Recently, additional chief secretary Anita Bhatnagar Jain inspected the hospital to take stock of progress on projects initiated by the Yogi government. The hospital had announced setting up of eight modular operation theatres, addition of beds in surgical ICU and cardiac ICU and live telecast of integrated Modular OTs for better training of medical students.
