ONGC CMD Shashi Shanker inaugurated the residential building of the Siu-Ka-Pha Multi-specialty Hospital at Rajabari of Sivasagar on February 22.

The services of the first phase of the hospital, with 67 beds, were inaugurated by Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on 1 March 2019 at Guwahati. In one year, over 33000 people have already been benefitted from the healthcare facility, out of which 6800 were dialysis patient. Phase II of the project is in advance stage of completion and scheduled to be commissioned by Sept 2021. The three new blocks coming up as part of Phase II will accommodate 162 additional beds with all allied services.
The ONGC CSR project has helped the local people, who had to earlier travel over 90 Km to Dibrugarh to receive even basic medical attention. The hospital is empaneled with Ayushman Bharat and Atal Amrit scheme of Govt. which has facilitated in providing treatment to all sections of society.
