The ambulances will have necessary life saving equipments and trained staff.

In addition to this, the government is also planning to set up low-cost hospitals through public-private partnership model.

In addition to this, the state government plans to come up with diagnostic centres in October. Upgrading Capital Hospital into a PG institute is also being considered with an investment of Rs. 143 crore.

The government is also working to implement Biju Bal Vikash Yojna, a new scheme to rehabilitate orphans and destitute children. Odisha’s CM Naveen Patnaik has asked the department to construct buildings for anganwadi centres as 45,000 such centres are running without a permanent building.
