Following report is from TOI:

BHUBANESWAR: The state government will establish a 700-bed superspeciality hospital in Sambalpur town in public private partnership (PPP) mode soon, government sources said here on Monday.

Odisha has roped in Kolkata-based Desun Hospital and Heart Institute for the project. The government will provide seven acres of land for the Rs 170 crore hospital to be functional in three years, health minister Prasanna Acharya said.

“People in western Odisha direly need another hospital to ease the load on VSS Medical Collegeand Hospital in Burla. Otherwise, they have to travel all the way to either Cuttack or Bhubaneswar. I hope the new hospital in Sambalpur will fulfill that need,” the minister added.

The government gave a no-objection certificate to the hospital following the proposal’s clearance by a high-level committee led by chief secretary BK Patnaik.

The hospital will have 24 speciality departments, 30 operation theatres and two digital catherization laboratories. The hospital will also house a general nursing and midwifery (GNM) school and a paramedical training centre. Besides, it will offer post graduate medical diploma (Diploma in National Board-DNB) for super specialization in medical field.

The government has also signed a memorandum of understanding with Sahyog Foundation to set up a medical college and hospital in Keonjhar.

Moreover, the government has identified a new site near the All India Institute of Medical Sciences for the proposed Regional Institute for Paramedical Sciences (RIPS) in Bhubaneswar.

Earlier, five acres of land was identified near the proposed medical college by Employees State Insurance Corporation in Jaganath Prasad Mouza. But the government changed the decision after a Union technical team suggested a relocation.
