Punjab Health Systems Corporation (PHSC)
Hospital Services at the Secondary level play a vital and complementary role to primary health care. The Government sector is engaged both in preventive and curative aspects of health care. It was realized that District Hospitals, Sub-Divisional Hospitals and Community Health Centres lack basic medical equipment and diagnostic services and have critical gaps in infrastructure. To revamp the whole system, a proposal was drafted to seek assistance from the World Bank. The WB Team visited Punjab in March, 1995, held discussions with His Excellency the Governor, the Chief Minister, the Health Minister, the Chief Secretary and the Secretaries of Line Departments.
