GOLAGHAT, Aug 5 - Around 50,000 people are almost devoid of proper medical facilities in the district as a 30-bed hospital has been running without sufficient skilled hands for several years.
The Kamar Gaon Primary Health Centre was established in 1948. It�s the only hospital that caters the people of Mohura, Rongamati and Khumtai areas with around 50,000 populations.
There is one doctor, a couple of nurses and a handful of fourth grade employees who have been serving the 30-bed hospital since 2000.
The state government upgraded the hospital into a 30-bed health care centre in 1987 and allotted Rs 28 lakh for its development. However, there is no ambulance service in the hospital and no new appointment of nurse and doctor, forcing the people to go the extra mile for proper and timely treatment.
Besides, the wild elephants used to trigger panic as there was no boundary wall for the hospital.
