Health Minister inaugurates rural health centre at Maddipadu

Saturday, November 4, 2017

Andhra Pradesh State Health Minister Dr.Kamineni Srinivas today inaugurated Rs.4.40 crore rural health centre at Maddipadu near Ongole.

He allayed the fears of the students of Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences saying that the government did everything on its part to get recognition to the institution from the Medical Council of India.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that with the opening of the RHC, all the conditions set by the MCI for its recognition had been fulfilled. The RHC would provide the much needed exposure to the RIMS students to work in a rural area, he said. He said a batch of RIMS students lost eligibility for appearing for PG courses following delay in getting recognition for the institution despite repeated inspections by the MCI.

Dr.Kamineni Srinivas inaugurated a dialysis unit that would cater to the needs of up to 40 kidney patients per day at Markapur town. The government had set an example by providing a monthly pension of Rs.2,500 to those suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease. He said that Community Health Centres would soon be provided with Mahaprasthanam vehicles. He also inaugurated a CHC at Kanigiri town.
