A new government medical college and hospital is soon going to be functional in the state of Bihar. This 300 bed hospital is being established by the Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) with the support of ministry of labour and employment, Government of India in the Bihta town of Bihar. This new medical college in Bihta will be soon functional after the approval.
The hospital is being planned to be functional from the announced date while the medical college is being planned to come up soon. The medical college attached to this hospital will be known as ESIC Medical College. This medical college will have a number of seats for admission to MBBS course and the process of advertisement for faculty members has already been started, as said by Principal Secretary of labour resources department, Mihir Kumar Singh. He also added that the central government has already asked for permission from the National Medical Commission (NMC) to start the medical college by the beginning of the coming academic session of August.
The decision to start this new medical college in Bihta was taken last year in an ESIC meeting. This medical college would have the 5th largest hospital in the state which would not only provide free services to the patients but would also decrease the burden of those hospitals. This new college will be affiliated to the Aryabhatta Knowledge University.
