BARIPADA: A four-member team of Medical Council of India (MCI) reviewed infrastructure and other facilities at the Pandit Raghunath Murmu Medical College and Hospital (MCH) on Monday. This is the third visit of the Council members to the MCH since December 21 last year. It was inaugurated by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on September 6.They visited the MCH at Rangamatia, about seven kms from here, and inspected conference hall, students’ hostels and accommodation facilities for staff, library, and non-clinical laboratory. Later they visited the Baripada District Headquarters Hospital which will serve as the clinical training centre of the students. 

Principal of the MCH, Srikrushna Mohapatra said the team members appreciated the existing facilities and also suggested for timely completion of other infrastructure requirements in the MCH. Apparently, construction of lavatories for students, staff and public besides, a canteen is yet to begin in the campus.
Naveen had laid the foundation stone for the medical college in 2015. Both the State and the Centre had provided financial assistance for the setting up of the MCH, which would cater to the patients from Mayurbhanj and Keonjhar districts, besides those from neighbouring  West Bengal, Bihar and Jharkhand.

North Orissa University (NOU) gave affiliation to the MCH on July 5 last year, which was subjected to grant of permission by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare under Section 10 (A) of the Indian Medial Council Act, 1956. In June this year, the Ministry issued Letter of Permission (LoP) to the MCH. The MCH has been accorded permission for one year initially for an annual intake of 100 MBBS students and it will be renewed on yearly basis. The process of renewal will continue till such time the infrastructure and expansion of hospital facilities are completed as per norms of MCI.
