DSGMC to restart work on hospital

New Delhi, November 10

The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) will restart work to operationalise its 500-bed super speciality hospital in Sarai Kale Khan here to mark the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev.

Work on the Harkrishan Institute of Medical Sciences and Research and its super-speciality hospital (Balaji) had started 13 years ago but was stopped due to various reasons, said DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa.

Nearly 80 per cent work on the building has been done, but hospital work is remaining, which will be started through ‘kar sewa’ on November 17, he said.

The hospital and medical institute is adjacent to Gurdwara Bala Sahib near Sarai Kale Khan. The charitable facility will be governed by a nine-member Trust comprising experts from medical, armed forces, judiciary, civil services, industry and social service fields, Sirsa said.

The hospital will cater to patients in around 20 areas of specialisation. It will have a 100-seat medical college and 60-seat nursing college. — PTI
