Health Minister Vidadala Rajini on Thursday inaugurated the state-of-the-art 100-bed government hospital in Chilakaluripet. The newly constructed hospital building, which was built at a cost of Rs 18.5 crore, marks a significant milestone in the region’s healthcare infrastructure.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Rajini highlighted the hospital’s modernisation efforts, which were carried out at a total cost of Rs 30 crore. She emphasised the acquisition of new medical equipment worth Rs 2 crore, enhancing the hospital’s ability to provide top-notch medical services. The construction of the new building, aimed at improving patient care and comfort, was a pivotal step in meeting the region’s healthcare needs.

Previously, the Chilakaluripet government hospital was housed in an outdated building with limited medical staff during the TDP regime. However, under the YSRCP government’s leadership, the hospital has been upgraded from a CHC to an Area hospital, and 96 positions have been sanctioned for doctors and medical staff. The Health Minister proudly shared that 23 doctors are currently serving at the GGH (Government General Hospital), and the hospital’s outpatient numbers have risen to 350, a testament to the growing demand for quality healthcare services in the area.

Minister Rajini stated that funds were allocated for the construction of a retaining wall, ensuring the hospital’s safety and stability. The improved facilities and services at the Chilakaluripet GGH now offer various super specialty services to the people, significantly elevating the standard of healthcare available in the region.

In addition to healthcare developments, the Health Minister also laid the foundation stone for the construction of CC roads. She took the opportunity to address concerns about a bypass road, asserting that its construction had been expedited during the YSRCP regime after delays under the TDP government due to management issues and land acquisition irregularities.

Rajini claimed to have successfully provided drinking water to the residents and facilitated the construction of new buildings for Gurukula schools, with another one underway at Boyapalem village. Additionally, she mentioned the establishment of a Kendriya Vidyalaya in the constituency during her tenure, further enhancing educational opportunities for the local community.

The inauguration event was attended by ZP Chairperson Henry Christina, APMS IDC Chairman Chandrasekhar Reddy, Health Department Secretary M T Krishnababu, Medical Department Secretary Manjula, and APVVP Commissioner Venkateswarlu.
