Cardiac healthcare in the North Karnataka region is going to get a huge impetus as the Construction of Jayadeva Hospital of Cardiovascular Sciences has started in Hubballi.
The Hubballi Hospital for the Handicapped (Leprosy Hospital) and the Rehabilitation center have now been completely demolished. Land preparation work has started for the Construction of Jayadeva Hospital.
Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had announced Jayadeva Hospital of Cardiovascular Sciences to Hubballi during the Karnataka Budget session for the year 2022-23.
Until now, the Northwest part of Karnataka was deprived of good cardiovascular healthcare facilities. The Hubballi unit of Jayadeva Hospital is likely to fill the gap.
The hospital is likely to cater to many districts of North Karnataka including Dharwad, Gadag, Haveri, Belagavi, Uttara Kannada, Vijayapura, and Bagalkot.
Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Hospital is a government-run institute exclusively for Cardiac care providing treatment at an affordable cost.
