Chandigarh, April 14- Haryana Health and Family Welfare Minister, Sh. Anil Vij said that Haryana would be the first state in the country where all the hospitals/medical centers at the village level would have ECG facility. He said that we are going to provide an ECG facility in all our primary health centers so that the primary symptoms of the patient can be detected there itself.
Sh. Vij was addressing the doctors and other people as the chief guest on the inauguration of the Complex PCI Cardiac Workshop under the aegis of MEDITRINA at Civil Hospital, Ambala Cantonment today. Inauguration of PCI Complex Cardiac Workshop, apart from Sh. Anil Vij, Chairman of MEDITRINA Hospital, Dr. N. Pratap Kumar, Dr. Imad Shaiban, Senior Cardiologist from Italy.
“My only aim is that not even a single patient from my state should go to any other state or city for his treatment, he should be provided facilities in our state only”- Vij
On this occasion, he said that most of the people go to big hospitals for heart treatment and get worried while some people do not even have some heart disease, so ECG facility is there in every PHC of the state to check their symptoms. The Health Minister said that “I have only one target that not a single patient from my state should go outside to any other state or city for his treatment, he should be provided all kinds of facilities in our state”. He said that we are running a heart, cancer, dialysis center here in Ambala and he wants to do the same in Haryana so that patients do not have to go outside.
Study is being done to provide health services as per the need- Vij
Sh. Vij said that in order to provide better health facilities in the state, a study is being conducted as per the guidelines of WHO as to where and what capacity health services are required. He said that a company has been given the task for this study, which will prepare a report and give us where and what health facilities like doctors, paramedical staff, equipment etc. are needed. He said that in this way we will be able to provide better health services in all areas.
Tests related to the health of every Haryana resident will be conducted, information will also be recorded through e-upchar- Vij
The Health Minister said that 24 buses have been taken by the Health Department, which has facilities related to health like testing facilities, doctors and paramedical staff. These buses run continuously and are going to villages and towns so that people can be treated there. He said that we are going to conduct all types of tests of every Haryana resident and all this information will also be recorded through e-Upchar so that the health history of the patient can be known in future. Apart from this, how many patients of which disease there are will also be known.
Emphasis will be given for health facilities in satellite or small towns, only referral cases from hospitals should go to PGI or AIIMS – Vij
He said that we have 4 Cath Labs in Haryana and plans are being made to set up more Cath Labs in the hospitals of the State. Sharing his thoughts, he said that “I think we have institutes like PGI and AIIMS in many cities. If we do not provide quality health services in satellite towns and cities, then these institutions are overburdened with patients and because of this research work cannot be done. That’s why we need health services to be available in satellite or small towns in Haryana or nearby states so that such patients can be taken care of there. He said that only referral cases from these hospitals should go to PGI or AIIMS.
About 13,000 angioplasty have been done so far in Ambala Cantonment Hospital, study should be done- Vij
Thanking Dr. Pratap, he said that he is opening a cancer hospital here, which is commendable. Apart from this, he said that there should be a study on the civil hospital established here that a large number of patients are being treated here and a large number of patients are reaching here. He said that so far about 13,000 angioplasty has been done in Ambala Cantonment hospital, which means more than 12,000 lives have been saved. He said that in the same way, about 7 thousand angioplasty has been done in the Civil Hospital of Panchkula and people have been saved. Apart from this, he said that there is Cath Lab in Ambala and where Dr. Raghav is providing excellent services. Sh.
