Adv.Aires Rodrigues has today sought the intervention of Chief Secretary Parimal Rai for the setting up of the long overdue  full-fledged state of the art well equipped medical facility at the now vacant premises of the Old Goa Medical College Ribandar hospital so that it is accessible and available around the clock for those requiring medical assistance.

Adv.Rodrigues in his letter has drawn the attention of the Chief Secretary that ever since the Goa Medical College’s Ribandar Hospital in 1988 was moved to Bambolim that there has been a longstanding demand of the local residents that a full-fledged health care facility be restored at Ribandar to cater to the health needs of the locals.

Pointing out that in August 2017 the then Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had publicly assured the residents of Ribandar that he would ensure that within three months Medical care services and facilities would be restored at the old Goa Medical College Hospital at Ribandar, Adv. Rodrigues has drawn the Chief Secretary’s attention that to everybody’s utter shock we are now told that what has been approved for Ribandar is just a day dispensary.

Stating that this was absolutely unacceptable, Adv. Rodrigues in his letter has stated that Ribandar urgently needs a 24 hour well equipped health centre which should be at least a 10- bedded  medical facility with a X-ray, Sonography, CT scan, MRI and other facilities.

Adv. Rodrigues has further stated that besides catering to the health emergencies of the very densely populated Ribandar, that this medical centre would also benefit the residents of neighboring Old Goa, Divar, Chorao and Chimbel.

Adv. Rodrigues has also stated that the cosmetic facility by way of a day dispensary which is now approved was a cheap gesture to pacify the residents of Ribandar and that it will benefit no one as it would only be a waste of public funds.
