He further said that the state had been discussing setting up a hospital at AIIMS level and the sanction for construction of a maternity hospital had been accorded. He also expressed his government’s strong stand against corruption in any form and stressed the necessity of giving awareness against corruption so that the same could be rooted out from grass root level.

JNIMS will not only act as the teleconsultation hub but share expertise and provide handholding support to the doctors in district hospitals in the delivery of critical care services in rural areas, said health officials.
