Utkal Alumina Health Centre a sigh of relief for patients in periphery region




 periphery, by extending treatment of critical illness at free of cost. Along with catering to the need of the out patients of around 250 per day, it also treats certain critical illness in the health centre. The dedicated team of doctors and para medical staff work relentlessly to provide access to quality health care service to the people in this remote place of the state.

Two recent operations conducted by Dr. Ravi Chauhan, Chief Medical Officer and the team for the burn injury patients of Dwimundi village are worth mentioning.
Notably, Bhajanti Naik, W/o Sri Ratan Naik of Dwimundi village had burn injury on her neck and was not being able to move her neck since long. She had been taken to various hospitals including the District Head Quarter Hospital at Koraput. However, it was told by the hospitals that treatment needs huge expenditure.
The family members of Naik did not dare the proposed expenses. However, they approached Dr. Chauhan with the help of Sanatan Naik, an employee of Utkal Alumina from the same village.
Dr. Chauhan is quite experienced and could successfully complete the operation with the help of the team. Bhanjanti is now extremely happy and can move her neck quite comfortably.
The satisfaction of treating the patient successfully could be studied from the face of Dr. Chauhan.
Similarly, Dalimba Naik, W/o  Senapati Naik of Dwimundi village had burn injury on right hand and the fingers were joined.  She was taken to various hospitals, including a renowned hospital at Visakhapatnam, where she was asked to pay a hefty  amount which was not possible for the family.
Dr Chauhan undertook the operation and she was cured.
Needless to mention here that the entire cost of treatment has been borne by Utkal Alumina.
Appreciating the effort, Unit Head & President of Utkal Alumina N Nagesh said that the company is committed for improving health facilities in the area and informed that the company is shortly opening Utkal Hospital at Osapada, which will have specialist service, advanced equipment and also indoor facilities in the days to come.
 





Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
