New director post for Capital Hospital
The health care units in and around the state capital which were earlier regulated by the Capital Hospital CMO will now be controlled by chief district medical officer (CDMO), Khurda. To lessen burden of CDMO, a new additional district medical officer (ADMO) post will be created.
Similarly, the CMO of Ispat General Hospital (IGH) in Rourkela will henceforth look into the improvement of health care facilities of IGH only. It was also decided in the meeting that a new post would be created in Rourkela under Sundergarh CDMO to share responsibilities of the health official.
