Maternity ward demanded for Civil Hospital
Our Correspondent

Mohali, June 11
The local Civil Hospital authorities have demanded the construction of a maternity ward.

In a letter to the Managing Director of the Punjab Health Systems Corporation, the Senior Medical Officer (SMO) in charge of the hospital, Dr S.P. Singla, said the female ward of the hospital was running in a old OPD block. At present 50 to 60 deliveries per month, including 10 caeserian cases, were performed in the hospital. In the female ward general patients apart from maternity cases were admitted and the present female ward did not have the facility of attached toilets.

The letter further said that the present female ward was inadequate to accommodate general female and maternity cases. To overcome the problem there was a need to construct a separate maternity ward at the hospital.
