Nagaland CM Neiphiu Rio launches 10-bed ICU project

Nagaland Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio on Friday launched the 10-bed ICU wards project with tele-connectivity in 12 district hospitals in the state. The chief minister also inaugurated the Tele ICU Hub at Naga Hospital Authority Kohima (NHAK) during the day.

Launching the 10-bed ICU project at Capital Cultural Centre in Kohima, Rio said the project will innovatively address the shortage of specialist doctors through the Tele-ICU Hub at NHAK. He said the project has the potential to transform the provision of critical healthcare services in government hospitals in the state.

Rio said it was difficult to make ICU facilities operational in district hospitals other than at NHAK. “The specialist doctors at NHAK will now be able to monitor and provide critical care remotely over a high-speed internet connection and using cameras,” he said.
