KCR to lay foundation for 2,000-bed expansion of NIMS

HYDERABAD: Telangana Finance and Health Minister Harish Rao on Tuesday urged officials to expedite necessary arrangements for the construction of a new 2,000-bed structure as part of the Government NIMS Hospital development.

Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, would lay the foundation stone for the new building. The Chief Minister initiated the extension of NIMS in order to meet the growing population's demands, as well as the construction of 1,000-bed TIMS hospitals on both corners of Hyderabad.

It was recommended that the essential departmental clearances be obtained for this new structure, which would provide OP, IP, and emergency services in all three blocks, before beginning construction.

The Finance and Health Minister held a review with senior officials of the Health Department at Dr. BR Ambedkar's Telangana State Secretariat on Tuesday. On this occasion, Minister Harish Rao mentioned that the new NIMS structure, built on eight floors, would increase the total number of beds from 1,500 to 3,500.

He also said that once the recently laid foundation stone for the super specialty MCH is completed, 200 more beds would be made available, bringing the total number of beds in NIMS alone to 3,700. This expansion would provide better access to health services to the people.

"The NIMS MCH works should be expedited, and apart from this, the Minister directed the completion of the 200-bed super specialty MCH being constructed at Gandhi Hospital by the end of this month. If completed, it would be the first super specialty MCH in the country. The government wants to accelerate the work of the Government Fertility Center and the State Organ Transplant Center being set up in Gandhi hospital to provide better access to health services for the people," said Harish Rao.

The minister asked the superintendent to take steps to improve transplant surgeries like those performed at NIMS hospital in Gandhi. Brain-dead declarations should be made, and organs should be given to those in need to give life. Despite the central government not supplying vaccines, the state government had mobilized them and made them available in PHC, Basti Dawakhana, and CHC.

Furthermore, the Finance and Health Minister issued an order to conduct the online process (CBT) for the recruitment of 5,204 Staff Nurse posts in various departments of the Health Department. He said that the recruitment process should be completed transparently and efficiently.

The minister emphasised that the best directors and superintendents are those that come to the hospital first and leave last. He proposed that most problems might be solved by making rounds in hospitals for two hours every day and visiting all departments. He also stated that serving the people is a once-in-a-lifetime chance, and he intends to work responsibly in order to earn their forgiveness and provide a good name to the government.

Harish Rao said that the Chief Minister had stated that a budget of more than Rs 12,000 crores had been allotted to make Telangana the top health-care state in the country. All types of medical personnel, including doctors, nurses, and paramedics, must work tirelessly to provide people with high-quality medical care.

The review meeting was attended by Health Secretary Rizvi, Arogya CEO Vishalakshi, DME Ramesh Reddy, DH Srinivasa Rao, TSMSIDC MD Chandrasekhar Reddy, TVVP Commissioner Ajay Kumar, CM OSD Gangadhar, NIMS In-charge Director Birappa, Gandhi Superintendent Raja Rao, MNJ Cancer Hospital Director Jayalatha, and other officials.
