Baramulla: The associated hospital of Government Medical College (GMC) Baramulla has upgraded its facilities and equipment to offer high-end diagnostic services to its patients.
On Thursday, the serum-based electrolyte chemistry panel was opened for patient care at the hospital by Principal Prof. Ruby Reshi, in the presence of Medical Superintendent (MS) Dr. Parvaiz Masoodi, HoD Medicine Dr. Nisar Khan, HoD Biochemistry Dr. Farooq, HoD Pathology Dr. Parveen and the faculty in-charge of the Central Diagnostic Laboratory.
The serum-based electrolyte panel is an essential diagnostic test required for emergency services, which previously had to be outsourced to outside hospital laboratories, causing inconvenience to patients.
"With the introduction of this panel, patients visiting the Associated Hospital of GMC Baramulla can now avail themselves of this service at a bare minimum charge," a handout read.
The hospital is also planning to offer other high-end immunological and hematological investigations soon.
The upgrade of facilities and installation of new equipment will ensure that the hospital can provide better medical care and diagnostic services to patients in the region.
