Jhalawar government hospital will be developed with an air ambulance landing service, which is the first of its kind in Rajasthan. Chief minister Vasundhara Raje announced this during her second day visit to her home constituency Jhalarapatan on Wednesday. She also declared a road map for boosting tourism activities in the area while having dialogues with locals during Jan Sanwad programme.
“The government hospital of Jhalawar will be equipped with latest services and technologies. It will be the first hospital in the state where air ambulance will land,” said Raje. She also directed the officials present there to open a ward for thalassemia patients and digitize 5 community health care centers across the district, expanding the health services to the people.
Air ambulance service is meant for air transportation, by airplane or helicopter, to move patients to and from healthcare facilities and accident scenes. The attendants in the air ambulance provide comprehensive pre-hospital, emergency and critical care services to all types of patients. Once such a service starts in Rajasthan then the patients could be air lifted for treatment to anywhere across the country.
Meanwhile the locals apprised the CM about growing cases of holes in hearts among kids in the area. Raje was in a state of shock on learning this and immediately directed health and medical officers to study its causes and report.
Besides dolling out sops to the people of the area Raje also shared plans of tourism development with the gathering assembled here. “The tourism activities will get a boost in Jhalwar with development of fronts of Chandrabhaga and Kali Singh rivers. Keeping in view of the religious aspect of Chandrabhaga River its banks will be developed accordingly. By June the panorama of Peepa ji is also expected to be come up. When these works will get completed, the tourist coming to Rajasthan will also visit Jhalawar,” Raje told the people.
