An Integrated 10 (Ten) bedded AYUSH hospital was inaugurated by Ms. Isha Khosla, DC East Siang, in General Hospital Pasighat in presence of Dr. Kabang Lego, JDHS, Dr. Mandip Perme, DMO, Kaling Dai, ZPC, Kaling Doruk, Councilor and others.
“ The Govt. is promoting alternate medicines in a big way so all has to make it successful by dint of their dedication, hard work, work ethics and maintaining quality standard”, said Isha Khosla. Since this AYUSH hospital is first of its kind in the state all should endeavor to take it to new heights. All should help to promote it so that people from outside the state also can avail its benefits. This can become a centre of health/medical tourism, the DC said.
Proper planning is essential for its long term development therefore, she appealed the authorities to prepare a vision document. She urged the Joint Director, Health Services (HTRC) and DMO Pasighat not only to support and lend co operation but provide guidance so that it becomes a reputed hospital. The DC also instructed them to tie up with the school and college authorities and teach yoga to the students. There should be competitions amongst them so that people come to know about the benefits of yoga and it becomes popular.
Dr. Kabang Lego while welcoming all informed that for the full fledged AYUSH Hospital, most of the equipments and medicines have been procured and staff appointed. Dr. Taru Tajung (Ayurvedic) and Dr. David Panggam (Homeo) are already in the hospital, he informed. He assured full support and co operation for the development of the hospital.
