Siliguri Alert - Coochbehars Poddar Hospital Ordered to be Shut Down by District Health Dept


The district health department of Coochbehar ordered to close down the Poddar Speciality Hospital due to infrastructural irregularities.

Sumit Ganguly, chief of Cooch Behar health department supervised the situation over the patients’ complaints.

Ganguly during his visit noticed the absence of a pathologist in the pathology lab in the working hours.

The other staffs were not properly trained to treat the patients. Due to gross loopholes in the hospital administration, he ordered a closure till the situation improves.

He also alerted other private hospitals of the district to look into the matter for the welfare of the patients. He will soon embark on a visiting spree to the other hospitals.
