In a bid to improve healthcare delivery system of the State which is facing acute manpower crunch, the Jharkhand Cabinet recently sectioned around 1,300 posts of doctors and medical practitioners across medical colleges and hospitals.
A major chunk of the posts of doctors were sanctioned for PMCH in Dhanbad and MGM in Jamshedpur, informed State Health Minister Ramchandra Chandravanshi.
“For PMCH, a total of 513 doctors were sanctioned while for MGM, the cabinet approved the hiring of 713 doctors,” Chandravanshi was quoted as saying by Economic Times.
He also said that additional posts were sanctioned separately for the upcoming superspecialty wing of PMCH.
“For that we created and sanctioned 77 new posts of doctors, mainly specialists for different wings,” he added.
“So we have created three new posts — additional directors of administration and finance and deputy director of finance at Rims. Rims director will solely be focussing on the health aspect while the administrative side will be dealt separately. It will ease some burden on doctors and allow them to focus on offering quality services,” Chandravanshi said.
