    Gandhinagar, Tuesday:  Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi the visionary of various world-class state-of-the-art health facilities in Gujarat dedicated and laid foundation stone of various healthcare facilities worth Rs. 1275 crore from Civil Medicity in Ahmedabad. He said that when senses are attached with resources, resources become excellent means of service. Which benefits the poor, middle class, women and children.

    Education and health are two sectors that have the potential to secure not only the present but also the future.

    Ahmedabad has become a hub for medical tourism, with Medicity functioning as the world’s most advanced medical facility. Medicity is not only a healthcare organization but also a symbol of Gujarat’s strength.

    Prime Minister dedicated Nation’s largest kidney hospital with 850 beds equipped with state-of-the-art facilities, 1-C Block of Gujarat Cancer and Research Institute in Civil Medicity, newly constructed building of UN Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre and laid foundation stone of New Super Specialty Hospital at Sola Civil Hospital Campus, Sub District Hospital at Bhiloda and Anjar and Medical Girls Hostel and Rainbsera at Asarwa Civil Campus.

    Prime Minister inaugurated a total of 188 dialysis centers and 22 (twenty-two) day care chemotherapy centers at district headquarters in the state under the “One Gujarat-One Dialysis” program of the state government and a total of 270 free dialysis centers in the state under the Gujarat Dialysis Program (GDP) along with the new 188 dialysis centers.

    The Prime Minister further said that 20 years ago, the state systems were gripped by many diseases. Inadequate facilities in the health sector, lack of education systems, power constraints, water scarcity, deteriorating law and order situation and most notably vote bank politics have hampered Gujarat’s development. But along with health facilities, we have worked to take Gujarat on the path of development by reforming the social system and adopting a caring approach similar to that of doctors.

    Referring to the One Earth, One Health Mission, the Prime Minister said that, if we work with this approach only then there will be prosperity in the world. During the time of Corona, when a single dose of vaccine was not available in many countries, it was with this approach that we delivered the vaccine to many countries in the world where it was needed. India has undertaken multifaceted efforts with a holistic approach in the fight against Corona.

    Referring to the facilities created in the medical field in the state in the last 20 years, the Prime Minister said, 20 years ago there were only 9 medical colleges in the state, today 36 medical colleges have become functional. In which earlier there were 2200 seats of UG, PG which has increased to 8500 today.

    On the heels of the work culture that was developed in Gujarat, development work was also undertaken across the country, as a result of which 22 new AIIMS have been started in the country in 8 years. Out of which one AIIMS has also become operational in Rajkot, Gujarat. At the same time, there were 15,000 beds in the government hospital, which has increased to 60,000 today. Not only this, a strong network of PHCs, CHCs and Wellness Centers has been prepared in Gujarat.

    Today 188 dialysis centers and 22 day care chemotherapy centers are functional in the state which will increase the health well being of the people. Efforts have been made to set up dialysis centers in every district of the country.

    Effective implementation efforts of Chiranjeevi Yojana, Khilkhilat Yojana, Mission Indradhanush, Matruvandana Yojana in Gujarat have reduced maternal and infant mortality. As a result of Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign, for the first time in the history of the country, the number of girls has increased compared to boys.

    Mentioning the benefits to the citizens from the double engine government PM said that, The integration of Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana, the world’s largest health insurance cover, and Gujarat’s Ma Yojana is today increasing the health well-being of Gujarat’s poor and middle-class families by alleviating their concerns.

    Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Bhupendra Patel said that, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has gifted various projects worth 1275 crores to the people of Gujarat for health security and welfare. Shri Narendrabhai Modi is a people’s leader, who knows the needs of the people and makes a time-bound plan to provide them with the facilities they need. The modern form of medicine we see today is due to Shri Narendra Modi’s vision.

    Shri Patel further said that Prime Minister has adopted a humane approach in the treatment facility. It is because of this approach that today Ahmedabad Medicity has an advanced civil hospital and medical college, kidney hospital, cancer hospital, heart hospital and nursing college. The medicity has also provided excellent accommodation and dining facilities for the patient’s relatives. Not only this, modern infrastructure including accommodation for doctors, medical students, new laboratory has been developed here.

    The development of Ahmedabad Civil Medicity has also taken place along with the development journey of Gujarat under the leadership of the Prime Minister. Ever since Shri Narendra Modi took over the charge as the Chief Minister of Gujarat, he has taken initiatives to strengthen the health infrastructure of the state, including the Ahmedabad Civil Hospital. This medicity of Asarwa has become an ‘all in one center’ for the masses to avail health services.

    This Medicity-Civil Hospital has made a special contribution in the entire health system of the state under the leadership of Prime Minister to fight the Covid epidemic. Not only this, indigenous anti-Corona vaccine was produced in the country and the world’s largest vaccination campaign was carried out under the leadership of the Prime Minister, in which Gujarat has been a leader at every stage.

    Speaking about the world’s largest health scheme Ayushman Bharat Yojana, the Chief Minister said that today, as a result of the double engine government of the Government of India and the Government of Gujarat, about 2700 different health services are being provided cashless to patients in about 3000 hospitals of Gujarat.

    Prime Minister along with Chief Minister and other dignitaries observed the model of Civil Medicity.

    The Prime Minister had an emotional interaction with the dialysis and day-care chemotherapy patients. He had interaction with patient farmer Shri. Bhimsingh Baria of Morwa Hadaf, Mukesh Kumar Sandhvi of Junagadh and Manoj Bhai Chaudhary of Vaghai and wished them a healthy life.
