“The state government is diligently working to transform Tripura into a medical hub. Numerous private hospitals are expressing keen interest in establishing their facilities within the state. Our focus is on enhancing the healthcare system. We have also established trauma care centers in three districts and also the state government has introduced super specialized medical services in seven departments of GB Pant, substantially reducing the need for patient referrals outside the state. Additionally, we will also open 100 health sub-centers across Tripura as part of our ongoing efforts to bolster health infrastructure,” Dr. Saha said
