PM Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, dedicated the K. K. Patel Super Speciality Hospital in Bhuj, Gujarat, to the country today via video conference. Shree Kutchi Leva Patel Samaj, Bhuj, constructed the hospital. Gujarat’s Chief Minister, Shri Bhupendrabhai Patel, was among those in attendance.
PM Narendra Modi remarked on the occasion that, having recovered from the damage inflicted by the earthquake, the people of Bhuj and Kutch are now working hard to write a new future for this region. “Today, this location offers a wide range of sophisticated medical services. Bhuj is getting a modern, super specialty hospital today as part of this series,” the Prime Minister remarked. According to PM Narendra Modi, this hospital is the region’s first philanthropic super specialty hospital, and it will serve as a guarantee of quality medical treatment for the people of Kutch, as well as lakhs of soldiers, paramilitary members, and traders.
Better health facilities, according to PM Narendra Modi, do more than merely treat disease; they also promote social fairness. “When the poor have access to low-cost, high-quality care, their faith in the system is strengthened.” If they are no longer concerned about the cost of therapy, they will strive harder to lift themselves out of poverty, according to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister emphasized that in recent years, all health-care plans have been established with this philosophy in mind.
