Union Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare S Gandhiselvan today laid the foundation stone of a 150-bed superspecialty hospital on the premises of the TDI City, Kundli. The hospital is to be completed at a cost of Rs 50 crore.

He hoped that the hospital authorities would take care to provide affordable and trusted health care across all sections of society, including some sort of reservation of beds for the poor people. Kamal Taneja, Managing Director of TDI Infrastructure Ltd, said the TDI City, Kundli, was the largest township in North India, which was integrated in 1,250 acres.
Dr Harish Kumar, one of the directors of the NCR Healthways, said the first phase of the hospital would be completed within six months and 20 per cent of beds in the hospital would be reserved for BPL families.

Bhagat Phool Singh Government Medical College medical college fully operationaL
Sonepat, April 12
Dr RC Siwach, Director, Medical College Hospital, Khanpur Kalan, told The Tribune that Bhagat Phool Singh Government Medical College, Khanpur Kalan, was fully operational now.
It has been popularly known as Rural Medicity,
Haryana, because of its corporate infrastructure, state-of-the-art equipment, machinery and world-class health services provided free of cost to the poor and down-trodden patients.
He claimed that the hospital has seven operation theatres, out of which four are modular operation theatres, world-class ICU, air-conditioned OPD and a fully operational blood bank. Now, it has also started a modern well-equipped library.
He added that within six months after its trial run, the hospital was ready with four modular operation theatres and 20 beds for ICU and other intensive units were made operational.
The ICU facilities are the biggest boon as poor and middle class people cannot afford expensive ICU patient care in private hospitals. “The minimum average expenditure of intensive bed in any private clinic ranges between Rs 5,000 to Rs 10,000 per day”, he added. Dr Siwach said a high-level team of the Medical Council of India (MCI) assessors had inspected the existing facilities in the institution in March. “We are eagerly waiting for the necessary permission to start admission to the first batch of the MBBS classes soon. We are confident that we may get the permission this year”, Dr Siwach remarked.
Dr Siwach said any medical college has three main aims, which are patient care, research and teaching. Here, patient care and research are already in full swing and we hope that teaching will be started in July or August, once the MCI gives permission to start the first batch of MBBS.
The foundation stone of the medical college was laid by UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi on March 1, 2009, on 100 acres. The college and hospital was built in a record time of two years by National Buildings Construction Corporation Ltd (NBCC).
Bhupinder Singh Hooda is the first Chief Minister in the country in the post-Independence era, who has thought about girls medical education and built up a government medical college only for girls in India. Till date, Lady Hardinge Medical College in Delhi was the only government medical college for girls.
The senior professor of Orthopaedics and medical superintendent of the PGIMS, Rohtak, Dr RC Siwach was handed over the charge of the institution on June 23, 2011.
Within two and a half months, the hospital was made operational on a trial basis on September 1, 2011, and was inaugurated by Rao Narender Singh, Haryana Health Minister.
