Odisha to set up 19 new hos­pi­tals

BioSpectrum (India) - - POLICY AND REGULATORY NEWS -

The Odisha gov­ern­ment has pro­posed to set up 19 new hos­pi­tals on Pub­lic Pri­vate Part­ner­ship (PPP) ba­sis in 18 back­ward dis­tricts of the state. A bulk of these hos­pi­tals will come up in the eight dis­tricts of the KBK (Kala­handi Balan­gir and Ko­ra­put) re­gion. The gov­ern­ment would pro­vide land at con­ces­sional rate with other in­fras­truc­tural fa­cil­i­ties and also decide the tar­iff of treat­ment in these hos­pi­tals. The pri­vate par­ties would make nec­es­sary in­vest­ments for set­ting up the hos­pi­tals and they would bring in more spe­cial­ists and clin­i­cal per­son­nel. It is es­ti­mated that the project would cre­ate di­rect em­ploy­ment for 9,500 per­sons and the to­tal pri­vate sec­tor in­vest­ment would be around Rs 1,150 crore. The health de­part­ment will pre­pare the de­tailed project and get the ap­proval from gov­ern­ment.
