Indore: Concerned about continuous failure in management of hospitals associated with Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College, its administration has worked on the long-pending demand of appointing hospital administrators. It has called applications on four administrative posts for hospitals.
The college administration has called applications for the post deputy registrar, hospital administrator and two assistant administrators. Application for biomedical engineer has also been called and the college has given a deadline of July 10 to receive applications.
“We have called applications on four administrative and one engineering post. Eligibility of administrative posts will be master’s degree in hospital administration,” acting MGM Medical College dean Dr KK Arora said.
He said decision on posting the hospital administrators will be taken after the recruitment process gets completed.
Long pending demand
Demand for appointing hospital administrator in Maharaja Yeshwantrao Hospital and other government hospitals was pending for long. Former Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had raised the demand after incidents of mismanagement took place in MY Hospital.
Mahajan had also sent a letter to the then chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
Resultantly, medical education department had created as many as 323 posts for all government medical colleges across the state. However, no action was taken even when the posts were created in 2018. According to sources, many doctors are opposing the post of hospital administrator but have not expressed it openly.
