Mangan, 23 Mar:
With the dismantling of the old District Hospital building at Mangan in North Sikkim, people are hopeful and expectations are high that the new one that is coming up will be a better one. The old building has been almost completely dismantled while work on the new hospital is currently underway.
The old hospital building had developed several cracks following the 2011 earthquake and had been declared unsafe.
The new hospital building will have a capacity of 100 beds which is the same as the old one.
“Cases should not be referred for minor reasons like Ultrasound and X-ray,” said Zilla member, Ringhim Nampatam GPU, Mak Tshering Lepcha.
