Upgrading Healthcare in Chandigarh: PPPs, Specialists, and Improved Services

  • Addressing Patient Demand and Specialist Shortages
  • Expanding Radiology Access and Reducing Costs
  • Enhancing Surgical Care
  • Commitment to Quality Care

The Health Department of U.T. Chandigarh is taking significant steps to address the challenges of its growing patient base and provide quality healthcare to all residents. Here’s a look at some key initiatives:

Addressing Specialist Shortage:

  • Empanelment of Specialists: Recognizing the shortage of specialized doctors, particularly in Radiology and Anesthesia, the department has proactively empaneled additional specialists to support existing staff. This ensures wider access to critical medical services.

Leveraging PPPs for Enhanced Services:

  • Successful PPP Projects: The department has successfully launched several facilities through Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs), including MRI, CT-Scan, and Dietary Services. These partnerships contribute to improved efficiency and service quality.

Expanding Radiology Access:

  • PPP for Radiology Services: Considering the success of PPPs in other areas, the department is exploring similar partnerships for Radiology Services. This has the potential to significantly increase access to these crucial diagnostic tools.
  • Subsidized Services: A charitable trust has come forward to offer Radiology Services at subsidized rates, further increasing affordability for patients.
  • Dedicated Radiologist for Gynaecology: To specifically address the needs of gynecology patients, the department has hired a dedicated radiologist, reducing out-of-pocket expenses for these patients.
  • Functional Radiology Centers at Peripherals: Recognizing the importance of accessibility, the department is working to make Radiology Centers operational at its peripheral satellite hospitals, bringing essential services closer to patients in outlying areas.

Enhancing Surgical Care:

  • Empanelled Anesthetists: To ensure the availability of surgical care 24/7 at all major health facilities, the department has empaneled a team of qualified anesthetists. This strengthens the surgical care capacity and improves patient outcomes.

Continuous Improvement:

The Health Department remains committed to continuous improvement and providing quality healthcare services to all citizens of Chandigarh. These initiatives demonstrate a proactive approach to addressing challenges, leveraging partnerships, and expanding access to vital medical services.
