Punjab To become First State To Launch Health And Wellness Center

To ensure the punctuality of medical officers and other medical as well as paramedical staff health department has also decided to install bio metric attendance system in all government hospitals

Aiming to deliver healthcare services to patients at their doorsteps, the Punjab government will become the first state in the country to launch 2,950 health wellness centres across the state in a phased manner. Of these, 240 such centres would start by this year end.

Punjab health minister Brahm Mohindra said “in first phase, 240 such centres would open this year in Fazilka, Pathankot and Patiala districts. Staff nurses, with specially imparted six month training from IGNOU, would be community health officers in these wellness centres. Medical officer from nearby community health centre or primary health centre would visit wellness centres bi-weekly for OPD services and Rs 17 lakh would be spent on operationalizing each centre. State government has decided to set up medical college and hospital in Mohali and its construction work would be initiated by the year end. We are ensuring that emergency ambulances reach the place within 20 minutes in urban areas and within 30 minutes in rural areas. Looking at the need to establish more trauma centres for extending crucial life-saving health care to the injured during critical hours, the health department has decided to set up five trauma centres across the state along the national and state highways.”

The health department, under Mukhya Mantri Jan Aoushadhi Yojna, also has plans to start medicine shops at 22 district hospitals, 41 sub-division hospitals and in three medical colleges of the state to provide generic medicines at affordable rates.

To ensure the punctuality of medical officers and other medical as well as paramedical staff, the health department has also decided to install biometric attendance system in all government hospitals. The minister further said his department has decided to establish two 50-bedded hospitals at Moga and Zirakpur.

The health minister also claimed that Punjab is the only state in the country to have rolled out e-raktkosh in all 45 government blood banks for easy public access to blood availability status as per blood group, blood bank and districts.
