Yogi govt developing state-of-the-art healthcare facilities in Kashi, Agra

Friday, 14 June 2024 | PNS | Lucknow

In line with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s vision to enhance healthcare infrastructure, the state government has commenced the development of state-of-the-art healthcare facilities in cities such as Kashi and Agra.

Under this transformative agenda, the process of rejuvenation and reconstruction of the 500-bed Multi Super Specialty Hospital (Shri Shiv Prasad Gupta Divisional District Hospital) in Varanasi and 150-bed Lady Lyall District Women’s Hospital in Agra is going on through EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Design).

To monitor these construction projects, the Planning department has initiated the process of appointing project management consultants. Additionally, the process of purchasing modern machines for the department of transfusion medicine (blood bank) at King George’s Medical University in Lucknow has begun, and it will enhance public amenities.

With this, the Yogi government is striving for investment, infrastructural development and increased public amenities and health services in the state.

Under the guidance of Chief Minister Yogi, the detailed action plan aimed at enhancing healthcare services in the state has been set in motion. Notably, the construction of the 500-bed multi super specialty hospital in Varanasi spans 5.55 acres and involves an expenditure exceeding Rs 161 crore. As part of this, the process of appointing project management consultants (PMC) has been started by the Planning department. Upon deploying the PMC unit, architectural design consultancy will be finalised within 75 days, and construction work is scheduled to be completed within 18 months.

In Agra, a 150-bed unit is being developed in Lady Lyall District Women's Hospital in an area of five acres at a cost of more than Rs 100 crore. In such a situation, regular monitoring of the development work being done there will be ensured by the deployment of the PMC unit and all the works will be completed in 75 days. To expedite the construction works, the PMC will submit a detailed project report (DPR), which will facilitate faster progress.

The process of purchasing modern machines has also started in the department of transfusion medicine (blood bank) of King George’s Medical University, Lucknow. As part of this initiative, the procurement process for the Cobas S 201 system and the fully automated Walk Away System has commenced. 

Cobas S 201 system will be fully automated nucleic acid testing (NAT) enabled while the fully automated Walk Away System will streamline grouping tests. These machines will assist in performing processes such as blood grouping, cross-match testing, antibody screening, Rh group confirmation (weak D identification), Direct Coombs Test (DCT), and extended antigen phenotyping, thereby paving the way for citizens to receive optimal healthcare services.
