    Health Minister T Harish Rao has announced that the newly constructed Mother and Child Hospitals will provide specialized care for pregnant women and infants, helping to save lives. The minister inaugurated the 200 bedded MCH in Gandhi Hospital, which cost Rs 52 crore. He also flagged off 33 Neonatal ambulances, one for each district. The minister praised the efforts of doctors in reducing the Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) and Infant Mortality Rate (IMR) in the state.

    The government plans to build three MCH hospitals in Hyderabad, with upcoming facilities at NIMS and Alwal TIMS. These hospitals will provide treatment for pregnant women with multiple problems and allow them to give birth under the guidance of expert doctors. The hospitals will also offer combined services such as dialysis and delivery, a first for government hospitals in the country. The minister believes that these MCH hospitals will greatly benefit poor patients.

The minister also commended the efficiency of doctors in government hospitals, evident from the increased number of deliveries taking place there.

    The Gandhi Hospital is set to introduce infertility centers in Gandhi and Petlaburz hospital, as well as an organ transplant facility on the 8th floor.
