Chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday sanctioned Rs. 2.50 crore as official grant for the construction of a three-floor rest house at the medical institution. The decision had come at his meeting with high officials of the health department, deputy commissioner GK Singh said here.

The chief secretary for health, Vinni Mahajan, was also at the meeting, the DC has confirmed.

The rest house will accommodate 200 people and have latest comforts. The chief minister wants the project completed in time.

Minister for Panchayat and villages Surjit Singh Rakhra had a major role in drawing the plan. During peak summer, attendants now rest on the ground, in the shade of trees. "If the patient requires long stay in hospital or is brought here in emergency, the attendants find their staying arrangements improper," said the DC. "The CM wants the construction over by December 31."

The hospital has an attachedmedical college, and it serves people from outside districts as well. The visitors will get better facilities this year, as Rs. 30 crore has been released for new requipments. About Rs. 1 crore is marked for buying medicines.
