New Delhi: Half of beds at the Delhi government’s super-speciality G.B. Pant Hospital will now be reserved for the residents of the city.

According to an order issued by Delhi government’s Health department recently, the facility would be available at the G B Pant Hospital in central Delhi.

 

 “It has been decided that 50 per cent of the total beds shall be reserved for patients who fulfil the following conditions — they must be residents of Delhi, they should have been referred by another Delhi government hospital and the admission should be required for specialised treatment or for planned surgeries,” according to the order.

The order says the facility seeks to provide timely and best available treatment for patients who are residents of Delhi. The hospital offers super speciality treatment to about three lakh patients in the OPD and almost 15,000 patients in general and private wards every year.

The foundation was laid in October 1961 and was commissioned by the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on April 30, 1964.
