Ludhiana: MLA from Gill constituency, Darshan Singh Shivalik inaugurated Community Health Center at Dehlon on Monday.
Speaking on the occasion, Shivalik said that the SAD-BJP-led Punjab government is committed for providing world class healthcare facilities to people. He said that strengthening the healthcare facilities is one of the foremost priorities of the present Punjab government and that is why several new hospitals and Community Health Centres (CHC’s) have been developed in different parts of the state.
This newly constructed 30-bedded CHC would cater mainly to the residents of 42 nearby villages of Ludhiana and Sangrur districts. Darshan Singh Shivalik informed that this CHC has been constructed with a cost of more than Rs.6 crore by Punjab Health Systems Corporation (PHSC).
Shivalik said that several new healthcare schemes have been started for the benefit of people, while several other schemes are in the offing. He said that the Bhagat Puran Singh Sehat Bima Yojana is running successfully in the state and lakhs of beneficiaries are availing benefits under this scheme, which has been started with the efforts of Chief Minister, Parkash Singh Badal.
Shivalik said that this CHC was a long pending demand of the area residents as the area lacked a big hospital. He said that this CHC would have all ultra modern facilities, labs and four specialist doctors- a Gynaecologist, Child specialist, a surgeon and a specialist of medicine, besides other facilities.
Civil Surgeon Dr Renu Chhatwal, Deputy Medical Commissioner Dr Beant Kaur, SMOs Dr Manjit Singh and Dr Santosh Kaur, Superintending Engineer PHSC Gurlal Singh Chahal, SDO Gurpinder Singh Sandhu and others were present.
