In a bid to provide the best healthcare facilities to the patients at their doorsteps especially in rural areas, the Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder on Saturday launched digitally 107 Health & Wellness Centres across the state.
Exuberating confidence over the robust healthcare network in the State, the Chief Minister, while interacting with the doctors through video conferencing, said that new Health & Wellness Centers would take Punjab’s health infrastructure to a new level of efficacy amid the Covid pandemic. He said that these centers would go a long way in helping our government to expand its healthcare outreach to a larger community of our people across the state.
Lauding the stupendous services rendered by the doctors and paramedical staff to overcome the unprecedented challenge during Covid-19 pandemic, MLAs Mr Rakesh Pandey and Surinder Dawar said that these additional Health & Wellness Centers would be instrumental in making Punjab a disease-free State as the Punjab government was already committed to provide the best treatment and diagnostic services to the people so as to keep them healthy and fit.
Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu said that it is a matter of great satisfaction and pride that Punjab was ranked No.1 in operationalisation of Health and Wellness centers in the ranking of states released by Government of India in the month of August, 2020. Punjab has already achieved the target given by Government of India for year 2020-21 (142% achievement).
