PM Modi while dedicating the KK Patel Super Speciality Hospital at Bhuj in Gujarat to the nation said that the goal of building medical colleges in every district of the country will bear fruits in the next 10 years.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that in the next 10 years country will get a record number of doctors, due to the increase in the number of medical colleges in the country. At present, there are little over 85,000 MBBS seats in the country offered through National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).

The recent incident of over 20,000 Indian medical students flying back from Ukraine in the middle of their medical education and thousands of Indian students unable to fly back to China, who returned during the first wave of the Coronavirus has raised serious questions about the number of medical seats in India.

PM while dedicating the KK Patel Super Speciality Hospital at Bhuj in Gujarat to the nation said that whether it is the goal of building medical colleges in every district of the country or efforts to make medical education accessible to all, the country is going to get a record number of new doctors in the coming 10 years.

KK Patel Super Speciality Hospital is the first charitable super speciality hospital in Kutch and is a 200 bedded hospital built by Shree Kutchi Leva Patel Samaj, Bhuj.

Modi said: “All the schemes of the health sector that have been implemented in the last years have been inspired by this thinking of improving the sector. Every year lakhs of crores of rupees are being saved in the treatment of poor and middle-class families due to Ayushman Bharat Yojana and Jan Aushadhi Yojana.”

The newly built hospital will provide super speciality services such as Interventional Cardiology (Cathlab), Cardiothoracic Surgery, Radiation Oncology, Medical Oncology, Surgical Oncology, Nephrology, Urology, Nuclear Medicine, Neuro Surgery, Joint Replacement and other supportive services like laboratory, radiology etc.

As per a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, the hospital makes medical super speciality services easily accessible for the people of the region, at an affordable price.
