Imphal, Nov. 11 (EMN): Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said the state government is considering opening facilities of neurological surgery 24/7 at the state-run Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) and equipment worth around INR 10 crores needed to be procured.

Singh was speaking at the inaugural function of the gents’ hostel No. 3 at JNIMS Porompat in Imphal East district on Thursday. Health and Family Welfare minister, Dr. Sapam Ranjan Singh, and Public Health Engineering minister, L Susindro Meitei, were also present during the inaugural function.

Stating that the state government has been putting efforts to bring up JNIMS to an institute of national level, Biren said he was impressed with the performance of the institute.

The government is trying, as a team work, to bring further development in the institute.

Informing that the institute has no facility for plastic surgery as of now, he added cases related to kidney transplant and cancer have been given priority.

Singh stated that considerable changes could be seen in JNIMS including increase in ICU beds, opening of neurological surgery facilities, installation of oxygen plants and successful kidney transplant operations, among others.

Mentioning that the seats of MBBS course in JNIMS had been increased to 150, he added the newly-inaugurated gents’ hostel would help in accommodating more students.

He also admitted that the state government could not add the required facilities at one go due to fund constraints. However, necessary facilities will be opened one after another on priority basis, he added.

Additional Chief Secretary (Health and Family Welfare) V Vumlunmang, director (JNIMS) Prof. Laishram Deben Singh, doctors and staff of JNIMs also attended the inaugural programme.
