Patients in Haryana will no longer have to face difficulties due to shortage of power in hospitals, as the State Government has decided to install diesel generator sets in 82 health centers of the state, including Primary Health Centers, Community Health Centers and Sub-Division and District hospitals.
Haryana Health Minister, Anil Vij, stated that a sum of about Rs 5.30 crore would be spent on these generator sets. The provision of uninterrupted power supply would strengthen the health care network and ensure smooth flow of medical facilities.
Vij said that for this purpose, health centers would be identified on the advice of Civil Surgeons of various districts, after which generator sets would be installed. He added that generator sets would be installed in seven health centers in Bhiwani, six in Hisar, five in Gurgaon, four each in Jind, Jhajjar, and Sirsa, three each in Ambala, Fatehabad and Rohtak, two each in Faridabad, Karnal, Panipat, Rewari, Sonepat, Yamunanagar and Narnaul and one each in Palwal, Kurukshetra, Kaithal, Panchkula and Mewat.
The Minister said that apart from this, generator sets would be installed in five rural dispensaries and remaining in urban dispensaries. He said that after the installation of these generators, the problems being faced in the health care sector due to shortage of power would be removed and people would get health care services at their doorsteps.
