Bangalore, July 26: Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy while inaugurating the MRI scanning unit at Jayadeva hospital today said that Jayadeva Hospital is providing treatments to the masses at an affordable price.
Jaydeva Hospital Director Dr. CS Manjunath’s contribution to the development of the organization is huge. He has brought the hospital to this level without having conflicts between the doctors and other staff. The hospital has been providing treatments to 50 lakh people without differentiating rich or poor. The Chief Minister said that Jayadeva is the only hospital to give treatment even if the person comes without anything in hand.
It is the government’s responsibility to provide all kinds of security to the doctors. It is unfortunate that the attack on hospitals and the assault on doctors happen due to death of patients. The government will also take action to prevent this.
He also said that steps would be taken to reduce staff shortage in government hospitals.
Medical Education Minister DK Shivakumar, Jayadeva Hridaydog Hospital Hospital Director Dr. CS Manjunath, MLA Soumya Reddy and others were present on the occasion.
