Revealing this, Punjab Health and Family Welfare Minister Mr. Chetan Singh Jauramajra said that the process to set up these centres has already been initiated. As the graph of cardiac ailments rising day by day, poor people suffering from cardiac diseases could not afford expensive treatment at the private hospitals as the state government hospitals lacked equivalent facilities.

However, for rest three Centres i.e. Jalandhar, Ludhiana and Pathankot, the bidding process has been initiated and shall be closed soon.

He further said that he hopes that these cardiac care centres will prove to be an important step towards making secondary and tertiary healthcare in common people’s reach and such people will not have to spend their life’s savings on treatment.

The project shall be developed on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode, wherein the Private Player shall be required to construct the Cardiac Care Centres at each of the 5 (five) District Hospitals and thereupon, operate and maintain for a pre-determined Contract Period.
