Poor patients start availing of medical facilities at Koosamma hospital

The District Government Maternity and Children’s Hospital has stopped functioning and all the inpatients and outpatients of the hospital are being referred to the newly constructed 200-bed Koosamma Shambhu Shetty Memorial Haji Abdullah Mother and Child (KSSMHAMC) Hospital here from Tuesday. The State government had, in August 2016, allowed the BRS Health and Research Institute, owned by B.R. Shetty, an NRI businessman hailing from Udupi, to construct a 200-bed maternity and children’s hospital, a 400-bed super-specialty hospital, and an urban community health centre, under public-private partnership mode.
