AGARTALA, Aug 27: The Tripura government is keen to have an
institution on the lines of the Regional Institute of Medical
Sciences (RIMS) in Imphal to improve healthcare facilities in the
state, Chief Minister Manik Saha said on Sunday.
The state government is pursuing the Centre to establish a
facility like the NEIGRIHMS in Shillong or the RIMS in Imphal, he
said addressing the foundation day programme of Tripura
Medical College in Hapania in West Tripura district.
The state is gradually turning into a medical hub as the dental
medical college is set to start functioning from the current
academic session, while a new medical college will be set up in
Dhalai district’s Ambassa, he said.
“In GBP Hospital and Agartala Govt Medical College, nine
specialty departments have been opened for the benefit of the
people. This has resulted in a sharp decline in referral cases,”
Saha said.
From a pharmacy college to nursing colleges — all are available
in Tripura, he said, adding that specialty doctors are joining the
state health service after the revision of the service rules.
Maintaining that the state has increased budget allocation for
healthcare, Saha said ‘Level 3’ trauma centres have been set up
in three district hospitals, and one more will come up at the
Dharmanagar hospital. (PTI)
