The union Labour ministry run Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) Tuesday said it will directly run all the newly constructed hospitals without giving them to states due to deficient medical service being provided there to industrial workers. “Several representatives have been received about deficient services in ESI hospitals run by State Governments due to poor availability of equipment and doctors. In view of demand from both workers and employees and with the objective to provide better medical services to beneficiaries, ESI Corporation…has decided to directly run by itself all newly constructed hospitals and those that are approved in future unless the State Government insists to run the hospital,” ESIC said Tuesday.
