1K CR For SCB

 Setting a goal to transform SCB Medical College and Hospital into an “AIIMS Plus” institution in the state, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has announced a Rs 1,000 crore Special Package.

“In fact our transformational goal should be to make SCB Medical College and Hospital (SCBMCH) in Cuttack into a AIIMS plus institute. This will involve a substantial cost to the people of the state,  more than Rs 1,000 crore, but it will result in a transformation where no person from Odisha will be forced to go outside the state for medical treatment,” Chief Minister said.


Chief Minister made this announcement while meeting SCBMCH authorities, heads of the departments and student representatives on overall development and patient welfare in the state run medical college.
