Chandigarh: Conceived in 2019, the city’s first AYUSH hospital in Sector 34 will open soon, giving residents an option to avail treatments under Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and homeopathy. The hospital will also have the facility to admit serious patients undergoing treatment through these methods. 

According to the UT health department, the construction work of the integrated hospital has been completed and its operation will be started soon.

In this 50-bed hospital, availability of 25 beds will be ensured in the first phase. The number of beds will be available to patients through Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy and Homeopathy methods. The remaining 25 beds would be added in the second phase, during which Unani and Siddha techniques will be introduced.

Along with the facilities of yoga and physiotherapy, a diagnostic lab will also be operationalised in the hospital.

Besides, Ayurvedic and Homeopathic OPD services will be provided. Panchakarma experts will treat serious patients using different techniques, whereas indoor services will be provided to the patients for treatment related to ‘Kshar Sutra’ or thread therapy to treat piles, fistula and fissure.

So far, Ayurvedic and Homeopathy OPD services are being offered in various health and wellness centres under AYUSH in the city, where medicines are provided along with consultation to patients. The facility of Panchakarma is also being provided in a centre. With the construction of a hospital with 50 beds, patients will be able to get all medical facilities under one roof.

“The hospital is yet to be handed over by the engineering department to the AYUSH department. It may take a few months more to become fully functional as the specifications of furniture etc are being finalised and recruitment of manpower will take time,” said an official in the UT health department. 

However, homoeopathic and ayurvedic OPD services will start immediately once the building is handed over to AYUSH department.
