Trauma ward opens at Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences
HUBLI: Chief minister Jagadish Shettar on Sunday inaugurated trauma ward at Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) Hospital and laid a foundation stone for an administrative building there.
Speaking on the occasion, Shettar promised support for the overall development of KIMS so that it provides better services to the people of north Karnataka.
"Young doctors should serve people in rural areas. To ensure this, it will be made compulsory for fresh MBBS graduates from this year," he said.
Medical education minister S A Ramdas said that the government has submitted a proposal to the central government seeking Rs 416 crore to develop KIMS.
To help the poor get medicines at affordable cost, generic drug houses will be set up in each district of the state. With this, poor people can get a discount of 50-75% discount on medicines.
