Upgradation of Local Hospitals

Public Health is a State subject. Under the National Health Mission (NHM), support is provided to States /UTs for strengthening their healthcare systems including for strengthening of district hospitals based on the requirements posed by the States/UTs in their Upgradation-of-Local-HospitalsProgramme Implementation Plans. No such complaints have been received in the Ministry under NHM in recent past.

Public heath being a State subject, it is the primary responsibility of the States/UTs to monitor the performance of local hospitals. Under the National Health Mission (NHM) some of the steps taken include:-

  • Provision of support under NHM to State/UTs for Hospital Management information Systems (HMIS) to facilitate State to monitor performance of public health facilities.
  • Issuance of guidelines to States/UTs for constitution of RogiKalyanSamitis/ Hospital Management Committee at all public health facilities at the level of Primary Health Centre and above for oversight of improvement of facilities and services for patients.
