Thoubal, July 7, 2017: With advancement in health and medical facilities, it is, but bly natural to keep up the pace and follow suit with changing times. In what may be termed as a good news for the residents of Thoubal district of the state, the region may soon get its first ever super speciality hospital.

In view of thius, Dr. Ashok's Jivan Hospital is eyeing to become the pioneers in thsi regard. It is located in Burma Sugnu Road, near Assam Riffles camp at old airfield near Kakching Lamkhai. It is a hundred bedded hospital run by 100 staff under the Directorship of Dr. Ashok.

Moreover, the hospital laboratory is run by fully automated machine tie-up with Babina Diagnostic Centre with 24X7 service.

"Since my childhood, it has been my dream to establish a hospital at my home town as medical facility here was not up to the mark. When I was an intern in the gynaecology department of RIMS, I happened to come across losing of lives of some pregnant women from Kakching due to birth complicacy and pregnancy related problems on the way which could have been prevented easily if medical facilities were provided on time. The mission of our hospital is to provide multi-speciality and superspeciality gynae department at par to the facilities available in urban areas", said Dr. Ashok told to Manipur Times.

"Since no operation theater is running properly in the whole southern part of Manipur which is one of the most backward areas with regards to health sector, by virtue of this profession, our social responsibility has increased day by day. It is unfortunate that the number of specialist doctors is very less in this area. However, we can hope that many of them are coming up in the near future that will be instrumental in fulfilling the vision of having a superficiality hospital at Kakching", he said.

It may be mentioned that before the establishment of the hospital, Dr. Ashok and his better half Dr. Jivanlata have been providing the ultrasound facility to the people of the whole Thoubal district from 2004.

With an aim of providing quality healthcare facilities to the people who have been deprived of the same for long, the duo is leaving no stone unturned in this regard.
