AIIMS Jhajjar to open next month

New Delhi, Oct 13, 2012, DHNS :

It will lessen burden on Delhi institute

The extension campus of All India Institute of Medical Sciences - Delhi in Jhajjar district of Haryana will start its OPD services in a month. Services will include gynaecology, ophthalmology, eye, cardiology and surgery.

AIIMS director Dr Ramesh C Deka said along with outreach OPD facilities, the hospital is planning to develop a centre of excellence in areas like infectious diseases, molecular medicine, nutrition, and control of non-communicable diseases, including cancer, vaccine development and regenerative sciences.

“This is being done to reduce the burden on the main AIIMS campus and provide services to people in Haryana,” said Dr Deka.


Sharing the achievements of AIIMS, he said the main AIIMS has already increased bed capacity by 50 in the current financial year. Beds have been increased in departments of pulmonary medicine, geriatrics, surgical oncology and immunology.

In the financial year 2011-12, the institute attended to nearly 26 lakh patients, admitted nearly 2 lakh patients and performed 1.5 lakh surgeries.

Average bed occupancy was over 80 per cent with average hospital stay of about 6 days.
AIIMS reported a net death rate of nearly three per cent and hospital acquired infection rate was 8.3 per cent.

Talking of other activities in the institute, he said a self enrichment programme for fresh MBBS students was conducted to build confidence and communicative understanding in them. This would help in collaborating with senior students.

A specially designed orientation programme in research and patient care, including communication and soft skills, was also offered to the new resident doctors and assistant professors.

Medical college’s faculty published over 1,700 research papers in national and international journals in 2011-12. Currently 632 research projects are in progress which brought grants of Rs 65.4 crore, an increase of 25 per cent from last year.
