At present, the residents of Jajpur and Puri depend on the SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack to get advance medical assistance. Once the multi-speciality facilities in Puri and Jajpur are completed, it will immensely benefit the local residents as well as the people of nearby districts apart from reducing the burden on SCB Medical.
“The Medical College Hospital at Puri will further lead to the transformation of the pilgrim town into a World Heritage Centre. This will transform Puri into an international hub of culture, heritage, faith and development,” an official release said.
