Plans to set up 5 new medical colleges: Jharkhand CM.
The Jharkhand government has plans to set up five medical colleges in the State soon, Chief Minister Raghubar Das recently said.

“We want to develop mineral-rich Jharkhand, which is lagging far behind in healthcare sector, as Medical Tourism destination and make it a medical hub,” Mr. Das said while inaugurating a College of Nursing of Tata Main Hospital and a Sankara Nethralaya Mobile Eye Surgical unit here.

Informing that detailed project report of three Centre-sponsored Medical Colleges are ready and foundation stones are likely to be laid before October 2, he said, the government is committed to improve the healthcare sector as it aims to develop the state as a destination for medical tourism.

The proposed colleges will be set up in Palamau, Dumka and Hazaribagh districts. The state government also has plans to set up two more medical colleges in Bokaro and Chaibasa (West Singhbhum district), the Chief Minister said.

Nine nursing colleges will come up in different districts of the State in current fiscal, he said.

The ‘Sankara Nethralaya Mobile Eye Surgical Unit’ inaugurated here on Sunday, is the first such unit in the country after Chennai, where a mobile eye surgical unit is in operation since 2012.

The Chief Minister hailed the founder of Sankara Nethralaya Hospital and Padma Bhusan recipient Dr. S. S. Badrinath for launching the mobile eye surgical unit in the State.

Inviting Dr. Badrinath, who was also present at the function, for setting up an Eye Hospital in Ranchi on the lines of its Chennai hospital, Das assured to provide him land for the purpose. The Chief Minister also spoke to him in this regard separately after the function. Recalling his recent visit to Hyderabad and Bangaluru to woo investors, Mr. Das said he had discussion with reputed cardiac surgeon Dr. Devi Shetty and Hyderabad-based pancreas specialist Dr. Rao and assured them land to open similar hospitals in the State.
