The minister was speaking after inaugurating the physical medicine wards set up at the General Hospital using the asset development fund of Hibi Eden MLA. “Ernakulam General Hospital is a great model for the public health sector of Kerala. As per the completion of the master plan, new projects will be allotted for the hospital,” said Isaac.

We are also planning to set up lift facilities under the MLA fund,” he added.
