Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori has assured the management of Sant Baba Nihal Singh Charitable Hospital for the appointment of a gynaecologist and opening of a generic drug centre at its premises soon, to benefit the women especially, and people in general visiting daily.

The DC on Friday visited the hospital and held a meeting with the management’s office-bearers who explained to him about the unavailability of a gynaecologist at the premises and a generic medical store which is a cause of concern for the women and people of the area who visit the hospital for medical examination and have to go to other health institutions. They said that it was an impending demand of the people.

The DC assured officer-bearers of fulfilling the requirement and rang up the drug department to explore the feasibility of the centre here so that formalities can be worked out soon. He said that these facilities would benefit the women and other residents of the area.

Apart from this, he also inspected various wards in the hospital and interacted with the patients. Thori also paid obeisance at Gurdwara Shaheed Baba Nihal Singh Talhan. He said that the administration was duty-bound to ensure foolproof arrangements for the pilgrims that converge to offer their prayers. He further added that in the coming years, more facilities would be added to its premises.
