MARGAO: Health Minister Vishwajit Rane and TCP Minister Vijai Sardessai visited the under construction District Hospital site, on Saturday.

MARGAO: Health Minister Vishwajit Rane and TCP Minister Vijai Sardessai visited the under construction District Hospital site, on Saturday. 

During the visit, the ministers informed that the hospital would be fully ready and functional by December. 

The ministers pulled up the Health Department Deputy Directors for being slow in getting their requirements finalised and also for not having a clear picture on the requirements for the prime hospital of South.

The GSIDC assistant manager informed that presently the work of flooring is on along with four sub-tenders. He said that the entire work would be completed by December to start the functioning of the hospital.

Vishwajit said that he and Vijai would be monitoring the progress of the work very month end and try to clear backlogs if any in the process.

Vishwajit lashed out at the health deputy director and the medical superintendent of Hospicio for not being in sync with the process of the District Hospital. “We have money for equipment. Don’t sit on the requirement and start the hospital half done. We need an MRI machine here and it is the need as well as demand of the people,” he said.

Vijai said that the hospital is the GMC of South and can’t be a post box to refer patients to GMC. “We need to give timely relief to the patients,” Vijai said. 

“Vet labs are most important. Similarly, send a proposal for it and also an imaging division which has to be fully functional. No point of putting 100 crore rupees if we can’t provide basic facilities,” Vishwajit said.

The issue of water seepage into the basement of the hospital building was also raised by some of the locals at the inspection. This has led to vector borne diseases outbreak in the past.

Vijai said the North main sewerage pipeline has a lot to do with the water seepage and said that they will take up the issue in the upcoming cabinet for the replacement.

The minister health also visited the morgue at TB hospital in Margao and has advised the person in-charge to speed up the process of disposing bodies to create space for new.
