Major reshuffle in medical chiefs of govt hospitals in Delhi

New Delhi: In a major reshuffle, the Delhi government Friday transferred medical superintendents and chief medical officers of government hospitals in the national Capital.

“These are routine transfers,” Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said on Friday.

“These are routine transfers,” Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said on Friday.

The medical superintendents of Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital, Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital, Shri Dada Dev Matri Avum Shishu Chikitsalaya , Satyawadi Raja Harish Chandra Hospital, Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital and Lok Nayak Hospital have been transferred from their respective posts.

The CMO of Lok Nayak Hospital has been shifted to Aruna Asaf Ali Hospital as a medical superintendent; the CMO of Bhagwan Mahavir Hospital has been moved to Shri Dada Dev Matri Avum Shishu Chikitsalaya.

Dr Siddharth Ramji, who was serving as the medical superintendent of Lok Nayak Hospital, will now completely take over as the Director Professor at Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC).

“These are routine transfers,” Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said on Friday.

The transfer order, a copy of which is with us, states: “The transferred officials shall stand relieved with effect from Monday, if not relieved earlier, from the present place of posting without awaiting formal relieving. Non-compliance will be viewed seriously and disciplinary action as deemed fit shall be initiated without any further reference.”

The move comes days after the doctors’ strike in the city paralysed health services. Resident doctors had complained about lack of security and shortage of medicines.
