Earlier on Thursday, Gurugram MP Rao Inderjit Singh had called upon the union health minister and discussed the proposed issue of AIIMS hospital in Rewari. Singh said that he has taken up the issue of land transfer with the state government.
This proposed AIIMS hospital in Rewari will have 750 beds. It will have medical College, nursing college, ICU and special facilities. It will cater to around 1500 patients daily. It will also have a guest house, auditorium, hostel and residential facilities.
Referring to the union budget presented this year, Mandaviya said that this budget had created a roadmap of the next 25 years for the country. It takes into account various issues such as infrastructure development, welfare of the poor, employment for youth and empowerment of the weaker sections. He also said that this budget had connected the health sector with country’s development and a large scale increase in health education infrastructure has been planned.
The union minister said that the Modi government has decided to increase the undergraduate and postgraduate seats in the medical education sectors. “The Ayushman Bharat scheme is being expanded to bring more people under its ambit and it has also been decided to open 157 new nursing colleges in the country so that trained medical staff is available to provide quality healthcare,” he said.
