Agartala, September 21 – The Agartala Government Medical College and GB Pant Hospital has announced that the hospital will soon be equipped with an ICU dedicated to expectant mothers.
The event highlighted the achievements of various departments and outlined future plans. These press conferences are held every Thursday to keep the public informed about the progress of the institution.
Present at the conference were GB Pant Hospital’s Medical Superintendent, Shankar Chakraborty, Gynecologist Dr. Jayanta Roy, Prof. Dr. JL Baidya, and Associate Prof. Ashish Rakshit.
Dr. Jayanta Roy shared insights into the hospital’s future plans, mentioning their intention to conduct an IPF (presumably a medical procedure or program) in the near future. He also emphasized that the maternity department provides a wide range of tests, and despite a high influx of patients, they strive to offer free treatment to all pregnant women, including those referred from other facilities. Dr. Roy also noted a slightly elevated rate of Caesarean sections.
Gynecologist Dr. JL Baidya commented on the hospital’s cleanliness and mentioned that efforts are underway to revamp the old building housing the department. Plans include reorganizing the space and providing it with a fresh, updated look. He also revealed that an ICU will be established specifically for expectant mothers who require intensive care due to severe health conditions. Additionally, separate new buildings will be constructed for mothers and children.
Responding to inquiries about the increasing incidents of theft within GB Pant Hospital, Medical Superintendent Shankar Chakraborty acknowledged the issue. He explained that the current contract with the private security agency overseeing hospital security is approaching its conclusion, and a new tender process is in progress to select a replacement.
