UKHRUL, April 13: In a first of its kind, the Ukhrul District Hospital (50 Bedded) established during the 70`s has finally availed the facility for operation service from April 12 onwards with the successful conduct of operation of more than seven patients.
It may be mentioned that the people of Ukhrul district have been facing immense troubles in many ways particularly regarding the problems of financial and the availability of timely and needful treatment because of the lack of an Operation Theater in Ukhrul District Hospital and have suffered enough for the last more than 4 decades. Infact almost all the major sick cases were taken down to Imphal hospitals resulting in spending huge sums of money in order to save the lives of the people.
The first time operation was conducted with assistance from expert doctors of Jawahalal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS), Imphal.
The CMO Ukhrul also expressed his deep gratitude to the services of the expert doctors and for their concern for the welfare of the Ukhrul people and added the service would continue till April 14 next.
