Srinagar, February 17

The construction of a high-tech bone and joint hospital in Srinagar continues at a statisfactory level, with over 70% of the project already completed.

The new 160-bed facility, funded by the World Bank, is set to significantly enhance healthcare services in the region, with the remaining work anticipated to be finalised within the next month.

The building has six ICU beds, 12 pre-operative and post-operative rooms, and three modular OTs. The new block incorporates earthquake protection mechanisms such as wall dampers, along with a pneumatic tube transfer system and a hospital management and information system.

With a minimum of civil work remaining for the completion, Kashmir Divisional Commissioner Vijay Kumar Bidhuri on Saturday paid a visit to the hospital to assess the operational readiness of the project which would boost the health sector and patient care in the Valley.

Bidhuri directed the executing agency to strictly adhere to the timeline for the completion of pending work. “He directed for the construction of a bridge between a main block of the old building and a new block for transferring patients between blocks very comfortably,” a government statement said.

He directed the development of the emergency unit which constitutes a pivotal segment of the hospital. He also enjoined on concerned to explore the possibility of shifting the power grid station from the premises of the hospital,” the statement added. Bidhuri directed CEO Smart City for the development of a one way bund road in a loop form so patients can approach the hospital conveniently. He directed for development of a parking place at the available parking space in the proximity.
