India will get record number of doctors in in next 10 years due to the decision of having one medical college in each district of the country, said PM Narendra Modi in his video conference on Friday.

He said two decades ago Gujarat had just nine medical colleges, but the  medical education scenario has improved vastly in the last 20 years.

“Now the state has one AIIMS and over three dozen medical colleges. Earlier, only 1,000 students used to get admission in medical colleges of Gujarat, now around 6,000 students get admission in these colleges. AIIMS in Rajkot has started admitting 50 students from 2021,” Modi said.

The hospital has been built by Shree Kutchi Leuva Patel Samaj, Bhuj.

The 200-bed hospital is the first charitable super-speciality hospital in Kutch, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said.

The hospital is equipped to provide multiple super-speciality services such as interventional cardiology (cathlab), cardiothoracic surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, surgical oncology, nephrology, urology, nuclear medicine, neuro surgery, joint replacement and other supportive services like laboratory and radiology, the PMO said.

The hospital makes medical super-speciality services easily accessible for the people of the region at an affordable price, it added.
