On Feb 26, 2015
|Trivandrum: Plans are afoot to change the government Ayurveda college to an institution of excellence. As the first step, a newly constructed seven floored pay-ward was inaugurated by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday.
“We have promised Central Government 10 acres of land for an Ayurveda Institute. Steps will be taken to raise this institute to an institute of national repute,” said Chandy in his inaugural address. He added that, Kerala has become the first state in India where there is at least one Ayurvedic centre in every panchayat and municipality.
The pay-ward at the Ayurveda hospital was built at a cost of Rs.5.72 crores. In his address the CM added, “Since people are giving preference to Allopathy, Ayurveda and Homeopathy, the government’s approach will be to give importance to each field.”
Health Minister V S Sivakumar who presided over the function, said, “The stone laying of the new 4 storied pay ward for Poojapura Panchakarma hospital will be held next week. This facility will be finished in a year’s time.”
The minister also launched a documentary produced by a partnership of Tradition Kerala Innovation department and Information and Public Relation department.
