President Kovind inaugurates super speciality hospital in Rourkela

The 200-bed hospital has facilities for neurology, neurosurgery, cardiology, cardiothoracic and vascular surgery and nephrology

President Ram Nath Kovind recently inaugurated a super speciality hospital of Rourkela Steel Plant in Rourkela, Odisha. The newly inaugurated 200-bedded hospital has facilities for neurology, neurosurgery, cardiology, cardiothoracic and vascular surgery and nephrology.

Asserting that RSP, a unit of state-run SAIL, has been sensitive in this regard, the President said, it has made conscious efforts to bring about changes in healthcare, education, culture, sports and other sectors besides playing a significant role in industrial development.

Pointing out that Rourkela and the western region of Odisha were deprived of super speciality medical facilities, Kovind said that about six years ago, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation for developing the Ispat General Hospital into such a medical institution.

This hospital would not only cater to the super speciality medical needs of Odisha but also adjoining areas of Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh, the President said.

Good governance has two important pillars – education and healthcare – and both of them have contributed immensely to the development of human civilisation, Kovind said.

“In the past years, the importance of healthcare has received worldwide attention. COVID-19 pandemic has shown its macabre form across the world. In this difficult time, our medical fraternity has fought an extraordinary battle against an invisible and unknown enemy,” Kovind said.

Praising the medical teams of SAIL for their commendable work of protecting people by their tireless efforts, the President said, “The nation would always be indebted to them for the selfless services rendered by the healthcare community and their dedication to humanity.

He said, “In recent times, we have invested a lot in primary health services, and our objective behind this is to expand healthcare coverage to reach under-served people and far-flung areas.”
