The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City -

New Delhi: Chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal on Mon­day laid the foun­da­tion stone for a new hos­pi­tal block for Delhi govern­ment’s Acharya Bhik­shu Hos­pi­tal in west Delhi’s Moti Nagar.

With the con­struc­tion of the new block, the to­tal num­ber of beds in the hos­pi­tal will in­crease from 150 to 420. “The con­struc­tion of this block will be com­pleted in the next 15 months by the Pub­lic Works De­part­ment (PWD),” a state­ment is­sued by the Delhi govern­ment quoted Ke­jri­wal as say­ing. “The ser­vices be­ing added to this hos­pi­tal will be such that even a top pri­vate hos­pi­tal may not be able to pro­vide.”

Ke­jri­wal added that the con­di­tion of the hos­pi­tal a few years ago was such that no­body wanted to go there for treat­ment. State health min­is­ter Satyen­dar Jain said that the ex­pan­sion will en­sure peo­ple no longer have to be re­ferred to big­ger hos­pi­tals that are far away.
