Healthcare Facilities in Wardha
Tourism isn’t always about heading into the nooks and corners of the most famous cities in the world – at times, even a visit to a relatively inconspicuous location can magnanimously enthrall the hearts and minds of travelers. And Wardha, a beautiful city located in the heart of the state of Maharashtra in India, is just that kind of a destination! With a rich pedigree, full of illustrious historical events, to boast of – the city commands its own place as a tourist hotspot entrenched deep in the map of India.
The growth in the stature of Wardha as a prominent tourist city in India was accelerated in the wake of the liberalization of the Indian economy in the early 1990s. As India opened itself up to the myriad benefits available in the rest of the world, the city of Wardha surged from the backdrop to the forefront of Indian tourism, by virtue of being a pivotal meeting ground of Indian leaders during the British era. Gradually, with the turn of the century, tourism had become one of the mainstays of the economy of Wardha.
To ensure that the process of utilization of the latent tourism potential of the city was aptly expedited, the administration undertook large scale development works to renovate the existing infrastructure in the city and make tourists’ experience in Wardha as nice as possible. Sectors like healthcare were dealt with seriously during this phase of development of the city, as a result of which the health scenario in Wardha is one of the best in India.
The health sector in the city consists of a flawless framework with the Chief Executive Officer at the top of the administrative chain. The District Health Officer and the Civil Surgeon come next in the hierarchy and under them come a number of medical officers with various ranks and designations and in charge of different organs of the city’s health department.
And it is this department in the Zilla Parishad of Wardha that directly supervises the implementation of national health programmes, the funding for which are sourced directly from the Central exchequer. Vital Health Indicators used to gauge the level of health infrastructure for a particular place have regularly revealed that Wardha has fared much better than its mother state – Maharashtra – in health and human development indices (death rate, infant mortality rate, mean age at marriage for boys and girls being some of such indicators).
The last five years have been outright phenomenal for the Wardha health sector, especially with respect to the following issues –
- Health Institutional Deliveries
- Sterilization Programmes
- Hydrosis Surgeries
- Cataract Surgeries
