Bihar CM inaugurates Karpoori Thakur Government Medical College Hospital in Madhepura
Madhepura: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar recently inaugurated Jan Nayak Karpoori Thakur Medical College and Hospital in Madhepura.
Mr Kumar, while addressing a function organised on the occasion, said that his government had made sustained efforts to improve the health and medical care facilities in Bihar since 2005. When he took over reins of Bihar in 2005, the condition of government hospital was pathetic and none was prepared to go there for treatment, he added.
"According to a survey conducted in the year 2006, the number patients seeking treatment in primary health centre was 39 per month while it increased to 10,000 after sustained efforts of the government to improve treatment facilities there", Chief Minister said adding that his government would ensure such a quality treatment facility in Bihar that no patient would need to go outside state for better treatment. People of Bihar had now started opting for treatment in government hospital which was an encouraging sign, he noted.
Mr Kumar said those teaching facilities in newly built Jan Nayak Karpoori Thakur Medical College and Hospital would begin after approval from the Medical Council of India (MCI). Treatment facilities were being provided, he further said adding that a statue of Karpoori Thakur would also be installed in premises of Medical College.
