Bone & Joint Hospital: World Bank Funded 120 Bedded Building Still Incomplete

The World Bank funded120 bedded additional block for Government Bone and Joint Hospital Srinagar is still under construction for the last 3 years.

The block has not been handed over to the hospital authorities and has even missed a deadline.

This information was provided by the hospital authorities under the Right to Information Act in response to an application filed by social activist and senior Journalist MM Shujah.

Pertinently, a World Bank funded building is coming up at Bone and Joint Hospital, the funds allocated to the Hospital after the floods of 2014, under Jhelum Tawi Flood Recovery Project. The Rs 89 crore 120 bedded building is still incomplete while the government repeatedly claimed that it will complete the construction without any delay but the situation on the ground is totally different.

Bone and Joint Hospital located in the Barzulla area of Srinagar uptown was gutted in a devastating fire in March this year.

The hospital as per news agency Kashmir News Trust has only one registration counter for patients who are being treated under the ‘Golden Card Scheme’.

Hospital authorities have said that 2900 patients have been treated under Golden Card Scheme from January 2022 to September 2022.
