Thakur said that this 250-bed medical college and hospital was slated to be completed by August this year. He said that on completion, it would provide modern healthcare facilities to the people of the region.
Construction work in medical colleges at Nahan, Chamba and Hamirpur was going on in full-swing and efforts are being made to complete it by September, he added. The chief minister said that during his recent Delhi visit, he met Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya and urged him to provide additional funds for these projects so these can be completed in time. All the medical institutions will provide world-class medical facilities to the people of the region, he added.
