SRINAGAR June 04: In a major decision aimed to promote the health of children and provide them adequate healthcare facilities, the SAC which met today, under the chairmanship of Governor Satya Pal Malik has approved the conversion of entire 200-bedded Maternity Hospital and 300-bedded Pediatrics Hospital at Bemina, Srinagar into a full-fledged 500-bedded Children Hospital.

Provision of quality childcare health facilities at Srinagar which witnesses rush from other districts has been a long-standing demand of the general public, in particular, those who are not able to afford the same in private centres.

Keeping this in view, SAC accorded sanction for utilization of new hospital complex constructed at Bemina Srinagar under Central assistance to establish 200-bedded Maternity Hospital and 300-bedded Pediatrics Hospital towards full-fledged 500-bedded children hospital.
